I did not even have Financial goals in the first place. The investment class (money academy) helped me not only understand all the tools that Abacus has to help you achieve your goals but I also got examples of people’s financial goals ... and I have managed to set mine. So far Abacus has helped me to set those goals and build my capital to be able to invest in different things.
I love the news section on Abacus, i don't read newspapers and i don't read news online in general. The news section actually put all the information i need in one place to assist me in making my financial decisions and just inform me on a daily basis. I love reading it in the car on my way to work.Natacha Ishema
Abacus has made it so easy for me to invest in the stock market. I now don't have to deal with calling my stock broker, I can handle the details myself and buy and sell as and when I please.
I especially like that I am able to invest in government bonds without having to deal with all the paperwork.Sandra Kimokoti
