Trading

Sell, buy or keep your shares – the choice is yours.

You have all the control no matter what you want to accomplish.
Here’s how:

You can buy shares directly through our online trading platform or via our call centre (our agents will take you through a step-by-step process).

What we’ll need from you:

  • Information (the number of shares you’d like to buy; the price per share you’re willing to pay; how long you want your order to last)
  • Money (which needs to be deposited into the Phuthuma Nathi account)
  • Confirmation (and acceptance of the cost of the shares, including taxes and administration fees)

After all this has been done, your order will be entered into the market for potential buyers and sellers to view.

The buyer’s order will be matched or successfully processed if:

  • The price of the buyer is the same as that of the seller
  • The price of the buyer is higher or equal to the lowest price of the sellers

To sell shares online, log on to the EESE trading platform by using your shareholder number/(EESE account code) and password that was sent to you via SMS and/or email. Alternatively, you can contact the Phuthuma Nathi trading helpdesk and one of our consultants will assist you).

To sell your shares, you need to enter the following information:

  • The number of shares you want to sell. 
  • The price per share you are willing to sell the shares for. 
  • How long you want your order to last (expiry date). 

Then a screen will appear showing what the likely value of your transaction might be, less taxes and administration fees.

If you’re satisfied with the likely value and costs of your transaction, click the ‘Process Order’ button.

Your order will be entered into the market for potential buyers and sellers to view. You will receive an order reference number as confirmation that your order was successfully placed on the market. 

The seller’s order will be matched if:

  • The price of the seller is the same as that of the buyer. 
  • The price of the seller is lower than the highest price of the buyers. 

The seller must select one of the following payment options: 

  • The money will be transferred to your banking account on record; or 
  • The money will be kept in your EESE trading account; or 
  • Part of your money will be transferred to your bank account and the balance will remain in your trading account; or
  • If you want to access the money on the same day, you will need to keep it in your EESE trading account to execute a same-day payment for which you will incur an extra cost.

If you’d like to trade shares, you’ll need to log onto the Phuthuma Nathi trading site.
