More resources for 'unlikely investors'


If you’re just joining us, we partnered with Pedestrian Group to bring the Sharesies purpose of creating financial empowerment to their community of millions.

Four images of people against a pink background, with the Sharesies and Pedestrian names coloured black in the middle of the image. The top right image is a man wearing a blue shirt smiling into the camera, bottom left is a man and women wearing black and smiling, bottom left is a person wearing a white singlet and posing for the camera, and the top left image is an AFL player kicking a ball during a game.

In Part 1, we covered resources about how Sharesies started, trends to watch, and how to start your own investing journey. 

In Part 2, we cover ethical investing, how to start chatting about money, and an overview of the share market. 

Investing that makes you feel good 

Did you know that Sharesies is a certified B Corp? It holds us to a high standard of social and environmental performance—our co-founder Brooke talks through the certification process.

Investing in companies that align with your values is one way to navigate the share market. Keen to learn why you might consider ethical investing and how to start?

Making money and investing a topic of discussion 

Everyone approaches money differently and that’s a-ok, but sometimes your finances can be tough to talk about. We heard from women in the R29 community about how their relationship with money has evolved over the years. 

Talking about money can be an uncomfortable experience, even if you’re talking to someone you’re comfortable with. We’ve put together some questions to help you get started. 

The share market 

It might sound like a simple question, but it’s worth explaining what the share market is and what it means when it moves. 

When it comes to the share market, how did we even get here? Vice chatted to Brendan Doggett, Sharesies Country Manager for Australia, about what we’ve seen in the past and how we can learn from it.
