Know the basics of investing:

Get to know our platform a little better by understanding how your different accounts work, the settings you have available in your profile, and how to deposit and withdraw funds from your account, as well as buy and sell shares.


Learn how to set recurring investments.

If you really like a particular share, ETF or Managed Bundle and want to invest in that item more regularly each time you have the funds available, you can do this by setting up a recurring investment. You can also set up a recurring investment with a certain amount you'd like to go into your Available Funds from your bank account each month and then invest it as you wish. 

Know the ways around buying instructions.

We reckon that you should be able to invest as and when the moment takes you! So whether waiting in line at the grocery store on a Saturday morning or struck by a share-shop urge at 2am, you can open up your EasyEquities account and set up buying instructions for any of the shares you want. Your trade will then be ready – bright-eyed and bushy-tailed – for when markets re-open, when it will be put through as a transaction on your account at a price at that time.

Access EasyAcademy by logging in to your account, and selecting EasyAcademy under your Profile Menu drop down, enrole and wait for the Welcome email with further instructions.
