recovery of equity investments/mutual fund or investment fund units

Participation is used in financial English only in connection with a share in a loan. "Participaties" is more likley to refer to a share of some king such as in a mutual or investment fund. The word "teruggave" seems to indicate some kind of a claim here. Without context I cannot be sure, however, that recovery is the right English term.

While looking for some of your terms on the Net, I found an intereting site: This is a glossary of terms used in banking and related activities, with translations in English, German and French. The translations are fairly perfunctory, and not as good as what Marijke is providing, but the explanations are useful -- and you'd be hard put top find a lot of these terms in any van Dale.

best of luck -- ken
