Invest in what you want, where you want

Invest as you want, where you want

Do you want to invest in shares? Or in options? Would you rather invest in mutual funds or individual shares? Investing is about making choices. So choose for favourable rates and useful investment tools by investing with ABN AMRO. You can find an overview of our investment products below.

Investing in shares

A share is the proof that you are a shareholder of a company. You choose to invest in shares because you want the opportunity to make capital gains. In addition, with shares you will usually receive a dividend. That is money paid out to shareholders if the company makes a profit.


Investing in mutual funds

If you invest in a mutual fund, you are participating owner together with the other investors in the same fund. Investments of a mutual fund are distributed. Just as with shares, a mutual fund may pay a dividend.


Investing in Exchange-traded fund (ETF)

An exchange-traded fund (ETF), also called an index fund or index tracker, is an investment fund used for trading on the stock exchange. The investment goal of an EFT is to follow the underlying stock index as closely as possible. Management costs of an ETF are relatively low. And managers of ETF’s do not make their own decisions with regard to the composition of the investment portfolio, such as in an actively managed mutual fund.

Investing in precious metals

At ABN AMRO, you can invest in gold, silver, platinum or palladium. Your investments in precious metals are credited to your investment account.


Investing in bonds

A bond is a proof of debt of a company or government. If you invest in bonds, you usually get a fixed rate of annual interest (coupon). A bond usually has an end date. At the end date, the company or government who issued the bond must refund your initial investment. The value of bonds is determined by credit risk and market interest rates.

Investing in options

Are you an active and experienced investor? At ABN AMRO, you have extensive opportunities to trade in options. For example, in share options on AEX funds, Midkap funds and index options. You can also trade in share options on foreign exchanges, such as in US options.


Investing in Turbo’s, Boosters and Traders

Turbo’s, Boosters and Traders work on the price movement of a share, index, bond, currency or commodity. A small change in the market price of an underlying asset can have major consequences for the price of the Turbo, Booster or Trader. This could mean either large profits or large losses. Turbo’s, Boosters and Traders are therefore only suitable for very experienced investors who are willing to take big risks.


Investing in structured products

Structured products are put together in a complicated way. They might be combinations of options with, for example, shares or bonds. They differ in characteristics and risks.


Investing in sustainable investments

With investing in sustainable investments, the social responsibility of an enterprise is at least as important as the financial results.

Register for emissions

Companies can issue new shares or bonds. These are called emissions. With an emission, there is usually a short period where you can subscribe for new shares or bonds. Do you want to register for emissions? Then there are usually no transaction costs.

Questions?

  • Where is the AEX position listed on the site?

    You can find the current prices at prices page Indexes.

  • Why doesn’t ABN AMRO show current prices for US shares on Internet Banking?

    This is due to the terms and conditions of the US exchanges New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. From 30 June 2006, ABN AMRO is obliged to delay US share prices by 20 minutes.
    We understand that this is difficult for you because you are trading with old information. We advise you to insert limit orders in stead of market orders to protect yourself against possible price fluctuations. 

  • Why are investment fund prices delayed on Internet Banking and My Dealing Room?

    The classic (listed) funds are available immediately in My Dealing Room. That does not apply to non-cash (unlisted) funds which are only available after a delay.

    This is because, after the morning opening of the classic funds on the exchange, the non-cash funds must still be checked, introduced, authorised and sometimes converted (e.g. from USD prices to EUR prices).

    This monitoring is done at different times: for the Euronext Funds between 11.30 a.m. and 2.00 p.m. and funds listed in Luxembourg later. Only then will the appropriate prices for non-cash funds appear on the ABN AMRO Funds database.
