The difference between listed and unlisted shares

Shares can be listed or unlisted. Unlisted shares are usually issued directly to private investors by small and medium-sized companies seeking financing. Unlike listed shares, they cannot be bought and sold on the stock exchange market but are traded "over the counter". The transaction then happens directly between seller and buyer. Historically, unlisted shares were reserved only for professional investors such as investment funds or business angels. But today, thanks to a platform like, you too can invest directly in these promising companies.

Characteristics of unlisted companies

Without a regulated market, the value of these shares is less easy to estimate. However, unlike listed shares, they are not subject to speculation. They are therefore less volatile. They are also less liquid, meaning it can be difficult to resell them. So keep in mind that you should never invest money that you might need in the short term. Finally, investing in unlisted shares carries a risk of losing all or part of the invested capital, as these tend to be smaller companies with a higher risk of failure.
But unlisted shares have a big plus: they allow you to focus your savings on the so-called real economy. The real economy includes the production of goods and services, i.e. no activities that fall under the financial economy. When you buy shares directly from SMEs or start-ups, you're participating in a local economy that works to boost local activity by creating jobs and tangible benefits for society.

Unlisted shares are financial assets with a particularly attractive return potential. Unlike bonds, their returns are not known or limited in advance. Depending on the company's growth potential, the capital gains can be significant.

Capital gain when sold

For most investments in unlisted shares, you have to wait for an exit opportunity before you can sell your shares. Capital gains arise when the share is sold at a higher price than the price you paid for it yourself. This is the compensation method we prefer at The investments we propose offer potential prospects of attractive exit opportunities, on average after 5 to 7 years.

Dividend payment

A dividend is a portion of a company's profits that is distributed fairly to shareholders in proportion to their number of shares. Only profitable companies can pay dividends. Unlisted shares usually involve start-ups and SMEs that, although growing strongly, usually still have too little profit to use this type of remuneration. So this type of remuneration is rather rare on
