Investors who want to purchase shares of a Dutch company
can do so directly or through a dividend reinvestment plan. This can be done to gain the ownership stake in the company
or as part of a larger stock investment plan in more than one Dutch company
The Netherlands is a country that welcomes foreign investments
and any international companies have opened their headquarters here. The same characteristics that make the country appropriate for larger company investments are also beneficial for investors who want to open a Dutch company and later sell stock
to outside investors.
Direct stock purchases in the Netherlands
A common way to buy shares in a Dutch company is to buy stock directly from the company that is issuing it. Large foreign companies are most often the most sought after and most companies will provide a direct stock purchase plan. A benefit of using this method is avoiding commissions although a minimum deposit will generally be necessary.
The process of buying the stock
is mutually beneficial: the investor maximizes his earnings while the company can raise additional funds at low costs. The companies that allow for direct stock purchases
will make this information public. Our company formation agents in the Netherlands

Buying stock in the Netherlands
Another two options that are available to investors in the Netherlands are stock purchase through brokerage or through dividend reinvestment plans.
Companies sometimes use the dividend reinvestment plan and this allows investors to use the amounts gained through dividends to reinvest in the same company by purchasing additional shares.
The brokerage is another method for purchasing shares in a Dutch company
. This method is suited for investors who want to have an expert manage their share investments in the Netherlands. The extra account management will be more costly than other options.
