Why I decided to give away access to all my investing courses for free

My name is Simon. I find investing to be an exciting and empowering pursuit. I don't just do it to plan for my future, it's essentially my hobby!

Years ago, when I would talk about money with friends and family, I saw a bleak pattern emerge. Many folks: 

Had some savings in the bank

Had the discipline to put some money away each month

Had long term goals (such as saving for retirement) which mean a great deal to them

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.

Literally.

By placing long term savings in a low return account, savings goals are being pushed months, if not years further into the future. 

We work so hard for each pound or dollar we save. Don't we owe it to our working self to make sure that what we do save, goes as far as possible?

In investment terms, that means we need to choose a savings and investment strategy that's right for us.

The thought of designing such a strategy, and actually carrying it out, can be overwhelming. Many theoretical concepts must be firmly grasped before you can begin. The number of choices you are faced with is boggling! 

In the face of this challenge, it may not surprise you to learn that only 78% of Brits directly invest in the stock market¹.

The solution

It eventually occurred to me that the root of the problem was the lack of access ordinary people have to investing knowledge. The solution, I concluded, was both simple and doable; turning investing knowledge into general knowledge.

With the right information, you will gain the confidence to make your money work harder. If you trust the source, and do , people will be well-informed of the risks and less likely to experience disappointment. 

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. 

Good Luck in your investment courses

P.S If you're unsure which course is right for you - start at the foundation course. You can always move onwards to the intermediate course after you've checked your understanding.
