EasyEquities 101:

How to open an EasyEquities account

Opening an account with EasyEquities is quick and easy. Just a few steps and you can be investing in no time!

How to FICA your EasyEquities account

FICA stands for Financial Intelligence Centre Act. It was introduced in 2003 as part of the South African government’s fight to combat money laundering. As a financial services provider, EasyEquities has to comply with the act, which means we have to verify the identity of all our investors.

What should I invest in?

Funny enough, the answer to this question is relatively simple and often hiding under our noses. Every day of our lives we already invest in the brands and products we love, so why shouldn’t we start investing in their shares?

How to buy shares on EasyEquities

Buying shares on EasyEquities is quick, easy, cheap and fun. If you are new to EasyEquities, you can start practising on a demo account with demo money before you start investing on the live markets.

How to build a diversified investment portfolio

It’s always wise to spread your risk across several shares. Not too many, but not too few either. By diversifying, your investment portfolio will remain balanced.
