Shares & Investing

Being involved in the finance industry I often times get asked what shares I own and what my opinions are of certain companies. I decided to put my personal portfolio on the website for others to see and to reduce the amount of time I need to repeat myself.

The platform I prefer when it comes to investing is EasyEquities, it's FREE, very easy to use and offers South African's young and old the ability to learn and invest on the JSE.

Everything I know I learned from reading books since I was little and watching webinars online.

How to Invest: The Beginner's Guide

I authored a book on how to invest on the JSE and made it available for download - for free.

The aim of this book is to present in clear form the simple principles of investment, and to afford the reader a working knowledge of how to invest on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) using EasyEquities.co.za as their broker. This book also covers what retirement annuities are and how to buy them through Sygnia.co.za using their Robo-advisor. This book aims to be a kickstarter for young South Africans wanting to invest for their future.

Investments in the stock market may fall as well as rise and are not appropriate for investing for the short term. You may get back less than you invested.
