What is equity?
Owning equity simply means owning shares in a company. A single voting share represents a fractional ownership of the share issuer in proportion to the total number of shares outstanding.
As the holder of a share, you would expect to receive updates on the performance of the company and vote on certain matters relevant to your shares.
Generally speaking, investing in equity through the Tifosy Investment Platform is about investing in a professional sports club that you think has the potential to grow in value. You invest money in exchange for a portion of the club’s equity, meaning that you buy shares in the club. If the club that you have invested in succeeds, you would expect the shares that you own to become worth more than what you paid for them, and you may be able to sell them at a profit or receive dividend payments in the future. However, if the business fails – as some businesses do – you may lose some or all of your investment.
Each investment will have its own return, terms and risks to consider and the offer document made available as part of each investment opportunity will contain all of the information relevant to the shares including information about the share issuer, its recent trading performance and any material risks. Any decision to invest should be made solely on the basis of a careful review of the offer document.
