McGregor BFA’s fin24 Dashboard team partnered with the JSE at its annual myShare Investment Day, an event designed to educate the public on how to go about investing on the stock exchange. The event was well attended, with 750 members of the public filling the JSE lobby and auditoriums. Henem Van Staden, fin24 Dashboard Product Owner, presented the new-look Dashboard product, aimed squarely at the private investor who wants to learn, compete and trade via a network of online brokers.
Talking about the event, Fin24 Dashboard Product Owner, Henem van Staden said,
“It was a humbling experience and now I better understand the challenges the investing public face. These include the available time to do research, understanding financial, accounting and investment terms, as well as, the knowledge and skills to utilise the available tools.
Making investment decisions is no easy business for the average man, yet many want to increase their wealth and secure a better financial future. This can be achieved by the patient retail users who are willing to commit time to educate themselves. Fin24 Dashboard is a free, stimulating, simple and engaging platform with no risk to the user.
It aims to educate and is a starting point for anyone who wants to learn more about the local stock market. If practice makes perfect, Fin24 Dashboard provides the ideal investment practice opportunity.”
Fin24 Dashboard is running an investment competition off the back of the myShare Investment Day event. Entry is free, and you can trade off live JSE prices with a chance to win a real investment portfolio account.
