What is the minimu​m amount to invest?

How much do you need to invest on the JSE?

There is no set minimum amount that you have to spend when buying or selling shares.

You could buy one share at 50c, but there are cost considerations. In many cases, you could go via a financial service provider (FSP) such as a unit trust or exchange-traded fund (ETF) provider. You could also transact for a minimal fee through monthly debit orders or make lump sum investments.​​

If you go via a stockbroker, you will pay a minimum brokerage fee, depending on the transaction value.​​

Some of the full service advisory stockbrokers will require a minimum portfolio size. Shop around to find a provider who meets your needs at a reasonable fee.​​​​​​​​​
