Investing Literacy Seminar


(For Education Only)


Format: Participants attend five weekly 90-minute live interactive online sessions and are asked to complete short tutorials before each session. Class size is limited to twelve.  There are some minor technological requirements involved in virtual meetings.  Be sure to check in advance of registration.

Content: This program is designed to familiarize attendees with the basic concepts and language of investing. By the end of the program, learners should have a rudimentary understanding of the following concepts and terms.

Growth, Value, Income
Precious Metals
Technical Analysis
Interest Rates
Real Estate
Fundamental Analysis
Tax Concepts

Individualized: The sessions will also, from the beginning, attempt to present successful investing as an extension and expression of personality and self; this essential perspective is often missing in conventional treatments of the subject.

Program Culture: Throughout the program, learners will be strongly encouraged to ask questions very specifically to overcome the reluctance many investors have (at their great cost) to get clarity about terms or strategies they do not understand. Learners are welcome to participate using pseudonyms or first names if this facilitates participation.

Cost: US$ 279.00 includes live sessions and all course materials (digital only) plus one free hour of optional tutoring (no investment advice can be given). Each learner will receive a physical certificate of completion, though at this time there is no educational credit available for having completed the course. All sessions will be recorded and learners (or spouses, parents, etc.) are welcome to review lessons from their live sessions. Learners who miss more than two live sessions will not receive the certificate. No refunds after the third session.
