Why RA’s Float our Boat

Ours are easy to access and manage as part of your portfolio, are super cheap and require no minimum investment. Yes please!

There’s less for the tax man and more for you. All returns and income are tax free within the RA.

They help keep your hands out of the cookie jar. Because your funds are ring-fenced for a fixed term, you can’t tap into them beforehand.

How do I transfer my RA?

There are a few simple steps to follow to transfer your RA from your current provider to EasyEquities. It is important to note that you cannot transfer your Living Annuity to EasyEquities, only your RA. The RA transfer to EasyEquities can only be a cash transfer (not a unit transfer), which means you cannot transfer your existing investments (units) within your RA. You would need to liquidate your investments (units) in the RA and then transfer the cash. Your current provider may levy fees for the transfer so please check with them first.

The transfer process can take quite a few weeks to complete, depending on your current provider. As soon as we receive instruction from your current provider we will notify you accordingly.

Transfer Steps

  1. You first need to activate your EasyEquities RA and accept the T&Cs.
  2. All you need to then do is email us your latest RA Statement to eerafund@thecycle.co.za
  3. We’ll take care of the rest! - Easy
