The Centrum voor Marketing Analyses undertook her annual research amongst private investors during Spring 2002. Some 1,000 investing households, investing in bonds, shares, investment funds, derivatives or share-lease constructions, have been questioned.
What follows are some of the reults:
The number of huoseholds which invest have declined from 1.79 million in 2001 to 1.67 million as per today. This is the second consecutive annual decline of 7%. In 2000, during the introduction of WorldOnline on the stock exchange, some 1.9 million households were actively inveting.
The net influx of new investors amounts to 3%, the lowest growth figure we have monitored since 1997. This could indicate that investing has lost its attraction.
