Why I share my investing courses for free

I see investing as a very rewarding pursuit in its own right. Investing combines knowledge, discipline and excitement together with life-changing consequences. 

Years ago, when I would discuss money and future with friends, colleagues and family, I saw a familiar pattern emerge:

Folk have savings in the bank

They have discipline to top this up from their salary every month

They held important long term goals, such as saving for retirement.

However, they were earning less than 2% a year on their savings

The problem

The rates of interest offered by bank accounts are a waste of time.


By placing long term savings in a low return account, we push savings goals backwards by months, if not years. 

We work so hard for each pound or dollar we save. Don't we owe it to ourselves to make sure that whatever we save, goes as far as possible?

That means creating a savings and investment strategy that's right for us.

The thought of designing an executing a financial plan can be overwhelming. A lot of theory needs to be understood before you can invest your first penny. The number of choices you are asked to make is mind- boggling! 

In the face of this challenge, it may not surprise you to learn that only 28% of UK adults directly invest in the stock market.

The solution

It eventually occurred to me that the root of the problem was the lack of access people have to investing knowledge.

The solution is both simple and doable; converting specialist investing knowledge into general knowledge.

With the right information, we have the confidence to make your money work harder. If we are well-informed about the risks of investing, we will be less likely to experience disappointment along the way.

This is why I've created free investing courses. All the information you need, in one place. Free to access.

It's about helping as many people as possible reach their goals.
