 My name is Marnus Bezuidenhout. I am 17 years old and a student at Hoërskool Hoopstad in the Free State. I started investing when I was 14 years old. Since then I have grown more and more interested in investing, and my knowledge has grown as well. I am always on the lookout for something to invest in that is easy to use and where I can be hands-on with my own investments.

A year ago I heard about Purple Group’s EasyEquities platform. I was very excited to begin with this new, easy way of investing. This was the perfect opportunity for me. The first share I bought was Purple Group. I really like the company, and Emperor Asset Management – one of EasyEquities’ sister companies in Purple Group – manages my long-term geared portfolio. I wanted to hedge the brokerage and management fees.

I am a BCOM Accounting graduate and that’s why I see finance from both a theoretical and practical perspective. I understand the value of money and spend only what I need and make sure the rest is safely tucked away at the bank for a rainy day.

I’ve always been good with saving money as long I can remember and before I even knew of investing. I started investing because I want the money that I work so hard for, to work for me! And to create wealth, not just for me but for generations to come.

We South Africans must start in our own homes to remedy poverty. Investing can eliminate poverty as it is a form of wealth-creation and financial freedom in the long-term. We need to have an investment culture throughout our lives in order to live comfortably, even at retirement.

Eunice Fourie. 34. mother/cook/digital designer

I am a complete novice when it comes to investing. In fact, I have no clue. I spend most of my free time honing my egg-poaching skills or pretending that I’m a Pentaceratops running away from a fierce T-Rex. Besides, common sense dictates that you need bucket-loads of money to invest well. As a graphic designer getting on in years, I don’t have that stash of cash. This was a game for my accountant and lawyer friends.
