Corporate Social Investment (CSI) Officer at the JSE, Ralph Speirs says, “We believe the challenge is really helping those who don’t understand how to start saving and investing on a stock market. We have gone to the schools and universities to try and get as much youth in the country involved in a stock market, understand what the share is and how to make money on it.”
