About The Instructor
Brennen Pak is a veteran stock educator and investor who retired at the age of 46 after attaining financial freedom. Stock investing involves financial knowledge, technical and analytical skills, business mindset, psychological thinking as well as guts and experience. It is not a skill that can be attained in a week, a month or even a year, but through years and years of incessant drilling and learning.
To date, he owns many stocks with multi-baggers including two stocks that were taken private, earning him a 6-figure sum each. Sitting on a 7-figure portfolio with a huge unrealized profit, he is able to fund all his family expenses (including contributing to the maintenance of his old aged parents who had passed on) as well as his own expenses all through the passive income derived from the portfolio alone, including extras to continue investing.
The irony is that all this only happens in the new millennium after his huge fall during the Asian financial crisis in 1997/1998. By then, it had already been almost 10 years after he started stock investing. Magically, in only the next 10 years into the new millennium, he attained financial freedom. In total he spent only 22 years in corporate life. You may think that his wife helped in the family expenses? No, his wife left her corporate life even earlier, two years before him after the birth of their child. You may think that he had sold a property, or inherited a business or inherited a fortune from a relative? No, he does not have any of those. In fact, he had been pretty on his own. He father stopped paying for his schooling after his secondary school. He had to give tuition to pay for the university fees all on his own.
Perhaps, you may think that he had a high earning from his corporate life? No, he is just an ordinary guy with a relatively standard remuneration just like any of his peers. In fact, if you meet him on the street, you probably may not recognize him to have attained financial freedom living on his own terms.
All these things came about was probably because he did one thing correctly - he started investing just as he started to earn his first dollar. But that still came with a huge cost. He spent almost 10 years exploring and groping in the dark to find the right footing, and still, paid dearly during the Asian financial crisis.
Good news is, he is now able to share this knowledge with you through the online courses. They help equip you with the necessary superb skills and knowledge to fire your way to become a true value investor.
FAQs1. Not from finance background or never invested before?
In numerous studies on investing psychology, many newly-minted investors think that they can invest better compared the other investors out there.
It is like many drivers who think they are better drivers than the others on the road. The reality was that they got into road accidents just as many times as what was found in statistics. What's worst, their over-confidence made them paid a high price.
They tend to speed, making unnecessary stunts and taking illegal turns. Of course, one may think that he is making money just as the stock market is advancing. He thinks that he is a hero and does not need any sort of guidance.
But all that could evaporate overnight and he finds himself swimming naked when the stock market recedes. Ask ourselves why a top tennis player or a top golf player still needs a coach who cannot even play better than him. The reason is that everyone has blind spots and this can be costly especially during times of stress.
You might wish to purchase the other course "Value Investing: The Essential Guide" as well, which teaches the basics of value investing such as the fundamental analysis on stock valuation. That course is specifically catered for beginners to help them build a solid foundation.
2. Want to get started at your own pace?
Event-based course fees to learn value investing can cost a huge sum. Apart from the financial aspect, time is a big constraint for many of us especially for those with families whose members are dependent on us. Thankfully, technology is right at our footstep. It is here for us to harness upon as far as learning and acquiring knowledge is concerned.
That is exactly why we put this course online. For a fraction of an off-line course fee, you can start and learn according to your own pace, at any time and at any place so long as you have an internet access.
3. Is there any pre-requisite for this course?
There's no pre-requisite for this course. All you need is a passion for value investing and be willing to learn. Although having some financial knowledge, good business sense and comfortable with numerical numbers certainly helps, it does not mean people can’t learn value investing skills. Learning how to invest for this course does not require sophisticated mathematics or rocket science.
Most of the calculations, if any, can be carried out using a non-scientific calculator. So, basically if you can use a simple calculator, you are eligible for the course. In fact, with an online course, you can replay the concepts again and again until you are drilled with the subject well before you jump into the next topic. Unlike an offline course for which you are likely to pay for more than a four-figure sum each, once you missed the concept, you probably be lost for the rest of the course.
4. Can I expect any follow-up from the instructor?Yes definitely. Upon purchase of the course, you will be added into a private group where you can ask the instructor any questions at any time. This course will also be updated from time to time to ensure students stay well-informed.
