Dutch private investors put more money in American shares than in pieces from non-Dutch companies from Europe. This is confirmed by BinckBank, an online broker, in an analysis of the stock positions in more than 200,000 investment portfolios.
Based on invested capital, investments in American (18 percent) and of course Dutch (69 percent) shares are clearly the most popular. According to the figures, Dutch private investors invest less than 12 percent of their equity portfolio in the other countries of the European Union. That means they clearly deviate from pension funds, says BinckBank. They traditionally invest a good deal of their assets in the euro zone.
When looking at investments in European companies, Germany is clearly a favorite with just under 28 percent, followed at an appropriate distance by France (21 percent). It is also striking that Denmark (11 percent) scores high. This is mainly due to the popularity of the Danish biotech company Genmab, which in terms of invested capital is even the most popular European share among Binck investors.
