Small Caps Industrie

Here are reasons why you should invest with us


Reasons to invest

Investment in die Small Caps Industrie

They are considered the small shares, but can still convince with a good performance - we are talking about shares of the small caps industry. Their only "disadvantage": they are not so much in the focus of investors and therefore in the shadow of the blue chips shares, as they are found for example in the Dax or other leading indices.

For this reason, shares in the small caps industry are also often referred to as investments or second-tier companies. But just because they are not so much in the focus of investors does not mean that an investment in the small caps industry is not worthwhile. That's a shame, because they often open up higher return opportunities, albeit at a higher risk. Investors who would like to invest in the small caps industry should therefore inform themselves carefully.

Shares in the small caps industry belong in every portfolio

Every investor advises to diversify their own portfolio. This means that shares of large and well-known companies belong in there, of course, as well as commodities, gold and, of course, shares of the small caps industry. Because these stocks have an enormous advantage over blue chips stocks: In times of upswing, they generate a higher return. Investors who diversify their portfolio with small-cap stocks can therefore achieve a greater return than investors who forgo these stocks.

However, they also fluctuate more than shares in well-known corporations. This means that they can lose more value in times of a downturn. In the long term, however, no securities account should do without these shares, because they are an essential component of an investment strategy.
