Despite the Ongoing Bull Market the Number of Shareholders in Germany is Declining (in German)
In 2014 about half a million people bid their shares or shares in funds farewell. Despite rising prices at the stock exchanges the number of share investors dropped the second year in a row. Only 8.4 million Germans, i.e. about 13 percent of the population, are invested in the share market. That is the alarming result of the newest survey of Deutsches Aktieninstitut regarding the number of shareholders in Germany.
