Our building blocks:

Ease of use:

The buying and selling of securities has to be easy and we have created the EasyEquities platform with the following usability measurements in mind:

Learnability: How easy is it for users to accomplish basic tasks the first time they encounter the design?

Efficiency: Once users have learned the design, how quickly can they perform tasks?

Memorability: When users return to the design after a period of not using it, how easily can they re-establish proficiency?

Errors: How many errors do users make, how severe are these errors, and how easily can they recover from the errors?

Satisfaction: How pleasant is it to use the design?

Affordability & cost:

Investing in equities has to be easy on the wallet. EasyEquities has created a structure with the lowest commission, no minimum investment, and no platform or data fees. This has been achieved through sound technical engineering and solid legal structures. Fractional Share Rights (FSRs) gives the owner the rights to a portion of an equity that is less than one full share . The fact that people have the opportunity to acquire the rights to the economic benefits and risks associated with the price movements and dividends of a portion of a share, is an ideal way for people with a small amount of capital to build up a portfolio of stocks.

Educate & guide:

EasyEquities put methods and means in place for those new to investing, to be privy to the best methods on share investing. This is achieved through model portfolio guidance that serves as a reference point for people to learn from, in order to build up their investing confidence. Another aspect relating to this is social trading. This is the means of using social media (such as Facebook, Youtube, Twitter etc.) to monitor other (experienced) traders behaviour and movement, and get insights from them on proper and effective trading techniques. This ultimately empowers everyone to learn about trading through social media until they are confident enough to start trading for themselves.

Serve a public interest:

We believe the platform should act as a tool that educates South Africans, particularly the youth, on proper investing techniques and cultivating a culture of good investment behaviour. It is the goal of EasyEquities to create a generation of savers who are empowered through investment education. EasyEquities serves as the vehicle to educate and empower the youth to become confident investors and encourage them to make wise investment choices from a young age that would positively affect their future.
