How to Invest

      Existing Absa customers have to apply online by logging on to Absa online banking (www.absa.co.za). Once logged on:

      - Click on the 'Apply' button on the top row of the screen
      - Select 'Exchange Traded Products
      - Select ‘Voluntary Investment’

      Non-existing Absa clients have to register for Absa online banking access first; a standalone profile will then be created. Please click on this link to apply.

      Minimum investment amount

      Recurring investment (debit order) : R500
      Lump sum investment : R10 000
      Additional lump sum investment : R5 000

      Stockbroker

      A registered member of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (i.e. a stockbroker) can carry out your buy or sell order through the JSE's trading system. As with any share transaction, your stockbroker will find a sell order in the market that will match against your buy order. Where the market does not provide an instance match, our market maker will provide liquidity, thus ensuring there is always a counterparty to either buy or sell any of our ETFs you are trying to trade.
      If you would like to open a stockbroker account please click on the following link to be taken to the contact list of all registered Stockbrokers of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

      Investment Plan

      An investment plan is specially structured for the individual investor to easily access ETFs via a monthly debit order or single lump sum investments. Please note: Investing through an investment plan is not as cost-effective as applying online.
      There are currently two investment plan service providers that you can open up an account with to purchase our ETFs:

      Still not sure?

      For investors who feel more comfortable getting advice it might be a better option going through a financial advisor, the benefits of which include:

      • You have a financial professional guiding you in making investment decisions.
      • You have one person you can go to get information and advice concerning your investments.
      • It's convenient. You don't have to spend time doing research and executing trades – someone is doing that for you.
      • You have (or should have) an unemotional, third party advising you, helping you to leave out emotions of your investment decisions.

      This option is generally the most expensive route due to the fees you pay for this advise, but is often worth it.

  • Absa Retirement Annuity: Core Portfolio
    • Invest directly online into our Core Portfolio a uniquely designed low cost retirement annuity solution, based on so-called life stage investment philosophy.
