Two Ways To Start Investing With Only R500

Invest Now To Secure Your Future

We all want the good life. But, YOU have to make it happen because Le good life just doesn’t come on a silver platter. If you think you need millions to start investing, then you’ve been misinformed. 

All you need is R500 every month. It might seem too small an amount, but it’s a starting point that will significantly grow with time. Today I would like to share two ways to get the best possible returns for your money. It is starting by investing R500.

1. Fixed Deposit Investment Account

Most people use fixed deposit accounts for lump-sum savings. However, FNB and Capitec allow you to start with a minimum amount.

FNB’s Flexi Fixed deposit accepts deposits from R100. You can increase your deposit amount at any time but, you can only withdraw 15% of your savings twice a year. Brilliant! What’s more, you’ll also earn interest between 3% to 6.6%, depending on the investment amount. What’s more, there’s no risk. Your original deposit and quoted returns are 100% guaranteed.

Then, there’s Capitec. They offer fixed-term savings plan to deposit money whenever you like, but you can only withdraw once your savings term is up. This term ranges from a minimum of six to 24 months. The only negative with this plan is the 6.4% fixed interest rates because you’d lose out slightly if the speed increased.

2. Exchange-Traded Investment Funds

These are similar to unit trusts because they invest in the financial markets and are easy to access. The minimum monthly investment is R300. You can go through the online platform etfsa.co.za, which covers all exchange-traded products in South Africa. One of the most established ETFs, the Satrix 40, tracks the FTSE/JSE Top 40 index.

ETFs are less costly than active funds. Therefore, they are becoming trendy. However, because you trade ETFs like shares on the stock exchange, they incur additional costs, such as brokers’ fees.

Lastly, if you have between R250 and R500 to save, then try looking at unit trusts. These provide investors with an opportunity to access the market at a competitive cost.

      Dear Kholofelo
      Well done for taking the 1st step in wanting to invest in your future
      My suggestion is that you put aside a few hours and go into your bank and speak to them about what the best option will be for you investment-wise and what interest you will earn etc
      Good luck

    I would like to learn more about investing money as a student and we learn as we grow. So, time is money, even if I could invest R500 it’s could make an impact through learning and growing as a future opportunist.

    1. Trish Avatar

      Hi Nkosinathi
      Thanks so much for your enquiry
      I love the way you think, and everything you save now will benefit you in the future
      We are living through very unusual times at the moment and we are uncertain of the future of many of businesses.
      I would suggest to be safe now to call your bank and ask them for advice
      Have an awesome day
