10.15 - 11.00 Learning to listen
In launching the SatrixNOW online platform, Satrix followed a somewhat unconventional approach. Pioneers in the ETF space and owned by large corporate, Sanlam, Satrix linking up with innovative newcomers EasyEquities was quite a radical move. Satrix CEO Helena Conradie takes us through their journey and shows how their link with EasyEquities enabled them to deliver on their clients' needs.
