Business literacy is vital for tapping into investment opportunities.

This was the core focus for a Share Investment Seminar and Broker Consultation Session that was held at the Tanoa Waterfront Hotel in Lautoka yesterday.

South Pacific Stock Exchange Chief Executive Officer Lanieta Qoro said this was of an investor awareness session that was open to the general public.

She said in terms of transferring attendance into actual investment there was scope

However, if the topic is too technical and no one’s going to break it down for the public a participations numbers are likely to drop.

“It’s for anyone who wants to know what SPSE is all about, what are the investment options  available and what sort of returns  and also some of the things they can consider before they invest,” she said.

She said the key issue from their end was what you need to consider before you invest, how do you about investing and who to talk to.

“It was really just information sharing  and telling them what we are about and them trying to get the basic information that will help them decide  that they will invest in some of these companies, “ she said

Ms Qoro said some of the questions that were coming from the other side of the fence was with respect to which companies are the best to invest in? How do you choose the right broker? What would be the causes of the differences returns that the SPSE offer? The returns offered by alternative investment options like your unit trust or bonds?

“The first is a preliminary awareness session and then we follow that up with a session that’s a little bit more in-depth in terms of how to monitor and diversity your investments,” she said.

She said In terms of those who were interested there was about 75 per cent reaction rate from the 30 that attended.
