Here at Markets & Money we take a different approach to investing than most in the financial industry. Rather than manage your money for you, while skimming a percentage, we prefer to present you with the best ideas we can find, and help you gain the financial knowledge to choose investments for yourself. That’s the rationale behind the educational ‘investment guides’ you’ll find on this page.

Covering topics as broad as the how to invest in shares locally and internationally, what ‘blue chips’ are and why you should consider owning them, to the basics of cryptocurrencies, these guides aim to give you a solid foundation in the basics you’ll need to get started as an educated, independent investor.

By now, you have surely heard of bitcoin. Bitcoin attracted a lot of attention back in 2017, when the price went from about US$1,000 up to almost US$20,000. But how does Bitcoin work?

What are Bonds and Why Should You Care?

The financial world can feel foreign to outsiders. Especially given how much jargon is thrown around. There’s nothing complicated about finance, all you need is a simple explanation of what sounds like a complicated topic.

What is Blockchain?

Even though it’s everywhere — and investors have been quick to jump on the blockchain hype-train — there’s a lot of misunderstanding about the origins and functionality of blockchain.
