Most people can agree that investing is a good idea, but many of us never take the first step because we have no idea where to start. There’s also the perception that you need a lot of capital to get started, which can be a barrier for first-time investors.
Simon Jonas is a regular Kiwi who has always been interested in investing and the sharemarket but couldn’t find the information he needed to get started.
“I think New Zealanders have a conservative view about talking about money,” he says. “I started working in a bank because I didn’t know anything about finance, and was blown away by how little Kiwis knew about investing. A guy I worked with helped me set up a trading account and taught me how to use it, and now I have shares in three companies, plus Kiwisaver.”
Simon says he’d still know nothing about investing if it hadn’t been for the people he dealt with at work.
“I research as much as I can, but there’s really not much information about investing out there.”
That is … until now.
The Property Crowd makes property investing accessible to everyone. We are committed to educating Kiwis about attainable investing, and we level the playing field by enabling people to invest as little as $100 at a time.
Our online platform is easy to use and can be accessed anywhere, at any time. Every investor gets their own personalised dashboard which lets them track their PropertyShares in real-time. If they want to invest in more, they can with just a few clicks of a button, and selling PropertyShares is just as simple.
The best thing about The Property Crowd? We take the fear out of investing. We cut out the ‘middle man’ and offer transparent guidance about property investing, making it less daunting and more accessible for everyday Kiwis to get into.
