The share of Shell’s oil and gas group was most traded by private investors in 2020. BinckBank reports it on the basis of an overview of investors’ transactions with the bank over the past 12 months. There was also a great deal of trade in shares of ING and biotech Galapagos. On the American markets Tesla was a favourite, and in Europe most of the transactions took place in Air France-KLM.
In addition to well-known shares, the transaction lists also show some special funds in which considerable action was taken in 2020, such as the overturned Wirecard and ‘corona stocks’ as Moderna. In addition, Just Eat Takeaway was one of the great risers.
However, many investors also invested in stocks that fell significantly due to the virus, such as Basic-Fit and thus also Shell and Air France-KLM.
In ETFs, where investments are, as it were, made in a basket with shares in a given stock exchange index, the Van Eck AEX was the most traded. The larger indices investing funds remain popular. In the investment funds, the Kempen Global High Dividend Fund leads the top 10.
