Since EasyEquities made investing uber-Easy, our clients have asked us if we can't make it even easier by allowing them to give us one instruction to take funds from their account on a regular basis (monthly, quarterly, annually) and then invest those funds in a particular instrument or product (eg. share, ETF, basket etc. ) of their choice.


Well we take those queries very seriously here at EEHQ and so while you've been enjoying our current functionality and hopefully making some great investment returns in the process, our product and dev. teams have been beavering away in the background to deliver it.


And so it is with great pride and many a sore tooth ( the beaver reference - get it? ) that we unveil our shiny new Recurring Investment and debit order functionality. Now you can never make the excuse of "forgetting to invest" again.


Some new functionality requires us to update our Terms and Conditions, so please consult the Summary of amendments to our EasyEquities Terms and Conditions ( detailed below ), and the full Terms and Conditions if need be.

3.2 You must ensure that you always have enough Free Money in your Account to pay for your Recurring Investments. You will also be able to set up a periodic Debit Order to pay an amount of money into your Account for any purpose in terms of the contract, including for purposes of paying for your Recurring Investments.
3.3 As a result of this new functionality we have had to amend certain definitions and add new definitions to clause 2.1 of the Contract, and update clause 8 (Account Types), clause 21 (Charges) and clause 25 (Payments) in order to cater for Recurring Investments and payments by means of Debit Order.
3.4 In addition, Clause 14.3 dealing with the removal of Issuer Securities from a Basket has been amended to provide you with the option to (either for a time period or indefinitely) block investments in certain Issuer Securities on the Settings Page.
