EasyEquities is an innovative investment platform that allows you to own parts of a company (shares) from as little as R5.

We've partnered with them to deliver on our purpose of helping you improve your financial life – by providing simple access to easy investing. And if you haven't invested before, don't worry about it! We'll help you learn the ropes with practise money in your demo account so you can get the hang of investing before using your own money.
How it works
A simplified version of the EasyEquities platform is available as a widget on our app. Through the widget, you'll be able to:
- Link your existing EasyEquities profile if you have one
- Create a new EasyEquities profile
- Practise using a demo account with R100 000 (ZAR) and $10 000 (USD) demo money (Note: this is not a real account and you won't be using real money)
- View your portfolio to get a complete view of your ZAR, USD, and Tax-free Savings (TFSA) accounts
- View your total account value, investment type and shares
- Browse the marketplace for local or international shares
- View the costs and performance of shares
What are the benefits?
You can use the new EasyEquities widget on our app to:
- Invest from as little as R5 – with no minimum amounts
- Save 20% on brokerage fees across all trades including:
- All shares and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) in your ZAR account

From now until the end of July, when you invest using the Easy Equities widget on the Capitec app you'll pay zero brokerage on any Satrix ETFs as well as the top 21 most bought US stocks, according to EasyEquities investors.
Registering your EasyEquities account using your Capitec app is a simple process that earns you a 20% discount on brokerage fee on any investment you make. You can also invest directly from your Capitec bank account, or immediately fund your account using the Easy Equities widget.
