🎙 Listen: Understanding Unit Trusts


One of the most trusted types of investments made it on the EasyEquities platform in 2021, so we want to give you a run-down of why many South Africans invest in Unit Trusts.

EasyWealth's Bongani 'Bobo' Nhleko joined the Easy Does It team in-studio to simplify Unit Trusts for us and our community. A few myths were debunked in this conversation, as well as breaking down the various themes that Unit Trusts are categorised by, and, of course, why they make for good investments.



For the sake of comparing and contrasting, Bobo also compares Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) to Unit Trusts, so if you’re familiar with both of these types of investment vehicles then check out the episode to gain more understanding about how they stack up against each other.

Did you know that distributions are very much a part of how Unit Trusts work? We also go through fees in this episode, as well as how Unit Trusts work in general.

Unit Trusts are a classic investment vehicle with an Easy spin of ‘no minimum’ nor standard monthly fees, so Millennials and Gen Z out there had better check out this episode to understand why Unit Trusts are one of Mzansi’s oldest and most trusted investment types (since 1965!).
