Securities and Exchange Board of India
When you invested, you did so with certain expectations about the performance of the company, the prospects of income from and/or the capital growth of the securities that you hold, the corporate benefits that may accrue to you, etc.
While making the investment decision, you should have, obviously, taken note of and duly evaluated the attendant risks that go with such expectations.
You should remember that one such risk is that your expectations on income and/or growth may not always materialise.
You would also recall that if you are an investor in the debt instruments, you can have
recourse against the company, besides the market, for redeeming them. But, as an equity holder of a company, in order to realise the value of such investment, you have recourse only to the market.
And you would recollect that the dis-investment may result in capital losses also.
Further, you would have also noted that apart from the above mentioned investment risks, you
also face the risk of running into problems with the trading and transfer of the securities.
