While living in the United States and working for Investors Edge, he realised that most people didn't invest because they could not save - a little obvious, but totally overlooked. So, between 1994-95 he wrote the course material for Financial Fitness The Easy Way and returned to South Africa, to establish the company, in January 1996. Jim is a Member of The Institute of Financial Markets and holds a Discretionary Asset Management licence with the Financial Services Board.
