Are you capturing the perfect moment? 🧐well, for our favourite photo and videography INVSTR, it’s capturing the perfect moment 📽 with his favourite share(s) 📊.
We had an opportunity to speak to Sven Meyer, a 19-year-old investor currently studying for an online business degree. This comes after he took a gap year before furthering his studies. Aside from academics, Sven is a sports fanatic with mad love for videography, photography and travelling.
Sven is a passive ETF INVSTR who started his journey before the age of 18. Sharing some of his investments, he says he’s diversified with local and international ETFs, including his Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA).
“I believe that ETFs are a great way to be exposed to the total world economy, without having to go through the high stress levels that come with market volatility (#HODL!),” he says.
Some of his holdings include Satrix and CoreShares ETFs.

Thinking back to how he started, Sven said, “After opening and contributing to my TFSA in my Covid Matric Year, 2020, I have now also started investing into ETFs in my US account. I was very fortunate that my uncle helped set up my EasyEquties account in my matric year, and through the help of others, reading a lot of guides and books, I was hooked on personal finance.”
For Sven, the journey has been a learning experience and an opportunity to share some of his personal finance goals and ambitions with his community.
“Being rich is having money; being wealthy is having time,” he says, adding: “Start making your money work for you from a young age so that you don’t have to work much as you get older.”
