Where is Simon ???


Just One Lap is a free online university with the aim of helping South Africans with their money. The three core areas of teaching will be;

  • Money in action
  • Building an investment portfolio
  • Trading

The primary method of teaching will be webinars and with my belief in education as a commodity that needs to be freely shared -  all content is free to users.


Three columns every week; Simon Says (my thoughts) and an investor educational page. I also do a weekly house view on a stock/ETF of my choise.
