Charles Savage first thought about EasyEquities while on the beach in Mozambique nearly 10 years ago. His relationship with the beach and surfing is well developed and it’s unsurprising that the epiphany happened there.
He learned to surf in the wild Atlantic surf spots in Cape Town as a youth. After completing a finance degree combined with an IT major at the University of Cape Town, Charles and his friend went on a global surf tour for 18 months.
In this episode, Alex and Charles discuss surfing, the internet, commerce, creativity, and flexibility. A central theme in Charles's success has been to harness his flexibility and allow opportunities that present themselves to unfold.
The success of EasyEquities (EE), a subsidiary of JSE listed Purple Group Limited (PPE), has been built on being flexible. Just when they thought the development work was complete, they were thrown a curveball and needed to get back to the drawing board.
EasyEquitiesis an online platform that allows anyone to buy shares in the brands and companies they love. For as little as R5, $10, or whatever amount they have available to invest (with no monthly brokerage fees) newbies and seasoned investors alike can grow their wealth.
EasyEquities aims to disrupt and remove the barriers to entry in local and international stock markets, making the purchase of shares easy, cheap, and fun, and ensuring that anyone can own shares in the companies they love.
