​​​Why FSCA Consumer Education?


The idea for the www.fscaconsumered.co.za website forms part of the Consumer Education Departments’ Mandate to provide guidance to consumers in order to make better financial choices and to live a financially successful life.  

Who is this site for?

FSCA Consumer Education website caters for all South Africans, young or old, rich or poor, investing or paying off debt, planning and setting financial goals. We are not selling you financial products or offering any financial advice. We are not registered to give you financial advice.

We are here to alert you to the facts so that you can make informed decisions about your finances. With the introduction of the Life Stages on our landing page, we are here to guide you at every stage of life. Look out for weekly financial tips and interesting articles dealing with complex financial matters, now delivered to you in lay-man’s terms. However, you should consider getting financial advice before you make major financial decisions from an authorised financial services provider.
