CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE

  • Sharenet Securities was founded in 2010 as an Online Execution Broker using proprietary trading execution software, available to clients via the Sharenet Portal, www.sharenet.co.za. Despite very little focus or personal interaction with clients this division has grown on an annual basis, measured by (a) Number of Clients, (b) Annual Accounts Opened, (c) Assets under Management/Advice, (d) Number of Trades per Annum, (e) Value & Number of Trades by clients and finally Net Revenues per Annum. In 2016 the owners of Sharenet (Pty) Ltd decided to investigate and roll out a Full Service offering to compliment the Online Offering by rolling out a Broking Desk, new product offering and new pricing. The Group has also rolled out a Wealth Division and re-aligned the sales teams to promote this new offering and early results are encouraging. Management believes the right candidate could unlock the obvious value inherent in the Securities division.
