Learning to invest is on a lot of people’s ‘to do’ list but it can be hard to know where to get started.

Forget what you think, investing is for everyone.

If you’re wondering how to get started, we’ve designed this page for you. Twelve hand-picked episodes from our investor primer series, Get Started Investing, will help take you from beginning to dividend.

Meet your hosts

  • Alec Renehan

    Alec developed an interest in investing after realising he was spending all that he was earning. Investing became his form of ‘forced saving’. While his first investment, Slater and Gordon (SGH), was a resounding failure he learnt a lot from that experience. He hopes to share those lessons amongst others through the podcast and help people realise that if he can make money investing, anyone can.
  • Bryce Leske

    Bryce has had an interest in the stock market since his parents encouraged him to save 50c a fortnight from the age of 5. Once he had saved $500 he bought his first stock – BKI – a Listed Investment Company (LIC), and since then hasn’t stopped. He hopes that Equity Mates can help make investing understandable and accessible. He loves the Essendon Football Club, and lives in Sydney.
