Get Started Investing Podcast

Get Started Investing is a jargon-free, 12-part series covering all the fundamentals you need to get started on your investing journey.

Steps to get started

Get your money right

First things first, get your money right. Focus on saving some of your income every paycheck, no matter how small.

Start small

Micro-investing apps offer a great way to get started. You can start investing with less than a dollar.

Sign up to your broker

It has never been easier or cheaper to invest in the share market. Using an online broker makes investing easy.

Decide what you will buy

Once you’ve sorted your savings and broker, you’re ready to make a purchase on the share market.
