How to Invest Like An Idiot and Trade Like A Pro Seminar 2014

Date: 11th March 2014

Time: 9:30am - 2:45pm

Venue: Multipurpose Hall, MPH

During the month of March, AFSA organized a seminar together with Financial Youth Intelligence (FYI) on ‘How to Invest Like an Idiot & Trade Like a Pro. This seminar helps youth to stand out, learn to build a portfolio of financial assets they can actually care about, and take advantage of the investor’s best friend – time – to watch their financial portfolio multiply. In times of uncertainty, traditional advice about money & investments may no longer hold. 

In this exclusive seminar, participants will gain a fresh look at all aspects of money & investing. Most importantly, participants will learn:
 - Investing isn’t a pro’s world anymore. Why some of the fund managers couldn’t even beat the chimpanzees? Yes! I’m talking about monkeys!
- What are the silly mistakes that most people makes when it comes to spending, savings & investing?
- Why traditional advices like ‘High Risk High Return’, ‘Invest for Long Term’ & ‘Dollar Cost Averaging’ is nothing but a MYTH?
- How to get started investing in stocks, gold, silver, and real estate with just a few hundred ringgits?
- Discover the mindset and psychology of real traders and market wizards.

The well known speakers for this exclusive seminar are Mr. Benny Lee and Mr. Jonathan Quek. Besides this two well known speakers, there are also speakers from Bursa Malaysia, Kenanga Investment Bank and many more to share about their companies background.

During this seminar, participants could grab the opportunity to meet the corporate partners such as Kenanga Investment Bank, Bursa Malaysia and many more to understand better about the corporate partners. Besides from learning throughout this seminar, participants could stand a chance to own a 1oz Maple Silver Coins during the lucky draw session and a chance to win a Keep Investment Simple and Stupid Book (KISS) by Jonathan Quek and Benny Lee.

This seminar is a great success to AFSA. Thank you for participating in How to Invest Like An Idiot and Trade Like A Pro Seminar and also FYI for collaborating with AFSA. Congratulations to the participants for making the first move towards increasing your financial intelligence! See you again in the future.
