Join me tomorrow to find out how US shares have become accessible to everyone

Necessity is the mother of invention. And with so much need to diversity their Rand assets, it’s no surprise to see action aplenty by those wanting to offer a solution to owners of shares.

Standard Bank’s Webtrader pioneered the process when offering its high-end share investing clients access to dozens of global markets. Now comes EasyEquities with a low cost offering for those with more modest budgets.

Fresh from a R100m capital injection by Sanlam, the disruptive share trading business is now opening up USA shares for South African investors. As with Webtrader, we’re proud to be partnering them in this exciting initiative.
