'Anarchy in SA poses no threat to EasyEquities investors' - Charles Savage

Posted on 07/19/2021

Last week’s anarchy left some BizNews community members wondering about the safety of their EasyEquities investments. To address these concerns, BizNews founder Alec Hogg went straight to the source and invited Charles Savage - Purple Group CEO and EasyEquities CEO and founder - to join the BizNews Power Hour. EasyEquities investors can breathe a sigh of relief, and with the number of the platform's customers having surpassed one million - it’s sure to be a collective sigh. Savage explains that with the ‘virtualisation’ of stock ownership - the civil unrest recently experienced in the country poses no risk to offshore investments and money invested with EasyEquities. Savage - a self-proclaimed ‘massive South African bull’ - admits that last week ‘was the worst week in his life as a citizen of South Africa.’ While he maintains his belief that South Africa can have a great decade ahead and that the events of last week might be a tipping point for the unification of the country, he states that - if he were in his thirties - his thinking and decisions would be different. - Nadya Swart
