 Reach Your Saving Goals with OTT Voucher and EASYInvest

Stock market investing has always been seen as a safe and reliable strategy to grow one’s wealth.

Unfortunately, these investments are typically only accessible to those with sizable minimum deposits in their bank accounts. This means that many people in South Africa who might benefit from investing in the stock market cannot do so.

Now, unbanked South Africans have a new way to reach their savings goals and grow their wealth through a smart investment strategy. OTT4Me makes it easy to invest your cash savings in promising stocks through their partnership with EASYInvest. 

In this article, we’ll explore how the EASYInvest platform works, and show you how you can use your cash savings to grow your wealth by using an OTT Voucher.

How to invest your cash savings with OTT Voucher and EASYInvest

If you’ve been carefully and diligently saving your hard-earned cash, you know how hard it is to grow your wealth over time. Investing in stocks is a way to fast-track your savings goals because it allows you to get bigger returns on your existing money. 

When you invest in a promising stock, the initial amount you invested grows along with the value of the company, allowing you to increase your savings and reach your savings goals faster. 

This is a fantastic way for South Africans to realise their financial goals, which is why stock investing is such a popular approach. Sadly, many unbanked South Africans are denied access to opportunities on the stock market, as there was traditionally no avenue towards investment without a bank account and a certain minimum deposit. 

This is no longer the case when you invest with OTT 4 Me on the EASYInvest platform. Now, cash-based South Africans finally have the opportunity to join the stock markets and add their money to the potential profits to be made.

The EASYInvest way to grow your wealth

The EASYInvest platform allows users to deposit funds into a unit trust run by Momentum. Thousands of people can invest together in large-cap equities through a unit trust. Momentum chooses equities for this trust based on the shared financial goals of its investors.

If these stocks underperform, Momentum will simply reinvest the capital somewhere else. The companies in which Momentum chooses to invest are evaluated based on their performance. 

You can boost the safety and growth of your investment this way without having to get too far into the weeds of financial markets.

Momentum offers a selection of unit trusts to cater to the varying demands and goals of its clients.

Using this approach, you can select a unit trust that offers greater security and less risk if you need money in the short term, or select a unit trust that offers greater potential return if you need money over the long term.

The plans are all unique and tailored to the individual.

How to invest: step by step

First, you will need to convert your cash to an OTT Voucher to add your investment to the unit trust you prefer. This is an easy, secure, and straightforward process that consists of the following steps:

  3. Ask the cashier for an OTT Voucher and pay for it  with the cash amount you intend to invest. When you pay with cash, a till slip with a special 12 digit PIN will be given to you. 
  4. You can also buy OTT Vouchers online through the official OTT4Me website. The voucher PIN will be sent to you via SMS or email.
