* Introducing Vienna Investments Trust



Leverage effect – (1) Using money loaned by a company for increasing the profitability generated by stockholders capital. If a corporation achieves with the loan fund a higher profit than the cost of its due, it means that the leverage effect had been successfully enforced. (2) The used method for increasing profitability of an investment without increasing the investment itself. Buying securities in margin is an example of leverage effect with loaned money. In this case you can obtain an additional leverage effect if the securities bought in margin are convertible in common shares. Although it does not imply using loaned money, pre-emptive rights, guaranties and options represent another example of leverage effect, offering the perspective of obtaining a higher profitability with a low investment or with none.

Among the risks associated with financial instruments traded on regulated markets or on alternative trading systems, we count prices volatility and financial instruments liquidity.

* Chairman’s message


Investment philosophy

“When you fight your own conscience and you are defeated, than you have won!” is the assumption of nurturing your own character. I could not accept a place within this live mechanism called stock if I would lose my dignity. Nothing matters more than humanity and I believe that, in order to become a toreador, you must first learn to be a bull!

Building TRUST is our business. I must thank my colleagues, my partners, the shareholders for I am well aware of the fact that all major achievements are nothing but team efforts. We’ve been celebrating success at all levels as I’ve been encouraging early and honest communication with my staff – our greatest asset.

This year is about continuing our already tradition in value oriented services. This is how we grew as a significant company in Romania and our plans are quite ambitious for the years to come. We have started climbing the stairs of success and we shall not stop until we reach the top! And even then, I promise you, we’ll think about it!”
