We really like Wellington-based Kiwi company Sharesies and we’re excited to be a part of their plan to help create a more financially empowered generation of New Zealanders.
Their online experience allows everyday people to grow an investment portfolio, without necessarily needing big bucks. For as little as $5, Kiwis can invest and stay informed and motivated about their financial choices.
Cool, right? We thought so too. And that’s why we announced that we’ve bought a slice of Sharesies. We were attracted to their ambition of giving someone with $5 the same investment opportunities as someone with $500,000.
We like that they are keen to make investing more consumer-friendly – and we believe this can can do great things for New Zealand.
And what’s in it for us? We want to keep expanding Trade Me, and this investment is another step in us building out our vibrant Kiwi online ecosystem. We’ve also got to know the Sharesies team and think they have enormous potential (and they’re just down the road from our Wellington HQ which is cool too).
Sharesies is worth checking out – no matter your financial knowledge. Everything you need to know is on their website, and their blog is the best place to start to kick-start your investment experience. It’s full of easy-to-understand posts about investing, what it means, how best to approach it, and other investors’ experiences.
So, what are you waiting for!? Get investing with Sharesies – we are!
