GT247.com which powers EasyEquities has climbed up the rankings this year to share third place with FNB Securities and PSG Wealth, showing that the niche players can mix it up with the big boys. The firm has always been highly innovative, being first to market with a range of social media products, enabling clients to interact not only with in-house experts but also fellow traders.
Its latest addition is the EasyEquities web-based platform geared for novice investors. GT247 has made a concerted effort to cut client costs — it charges a negligible 0.25% cost and has structured it specifically to remove traditional barriers.
It has also cut costs out of every step of the investing process. EasyEquities is now without doubt the best value and most convenient offering for entry-level investors and was awarded the Best Broker for the Young Saver Award.
