Recent Sell - Reduced SP Amerikka



Yesterday on11th March I sold 36.401 shares of SP Amerikka at €109.89 per share plus commission. 

Säästöpankki Amerikka is a fund of funds with the objective of increasing the value of the fund units in the long term by mainly investing the capital in investment funds UCITS that invest in the North American equity markets. The fund is euro denominated, but it has investments in other currencies, so changes in exchange rates affect the value of the investment (currency risk). The Säästöpankki Amerikka non-UCITS fund is suitable for investors who are interested in the North American capital markets and who are aware of the related opportunities and risks. The recommended investment period is over seven years.
