Why is there higher risk involved in investing in shares?

When you invest in shares, you are placing your money in a company. If the company in which you have invested does not do as well as anticipated, this will mean that the company's share value will fall.

Whether a company performs well or not is very unpredictable and therefore you can quickly lose money. On the other hand, you can quickly make money when things are going well.

PensionDanmark always invests your savings in a mix of shares and bonds, so the risk is minimised. This way, you have a good chance of making money on the shares and at the same time you are ensured a more stable return on the bonds,
