The financial industry wants us to believe that investing is too risky and too complex and that (of course) hiring them is our best option…

I believed that too until 2012. Back then I was trying to figure out how to plan for my pension and boost my retirement income. I trusted banks and financial advisors to help me but all they did was charge a lot of money for pretty bad results. That is when I discovered index investing and when I realized there was a simple way to build wealth very effectively.

And I was shocked when I realized how much the financial industry was taking away from regular people like you and me (they took 25% of my investments over 4 years!) and how simple the alternative was.

In fact, in the last few decades, investing has become easier and easier for individuals like you and me. With the rise of index funds, exchange traded funds and discount brokers, investing is now something that anyone with an internet connection can do, and at a fraction of the costs charged by most banks or financial advisers.

Index investing was built upon decades of academic research and practical experience by thousands of investors (such as the Bogleheads) and has also proven to be far more effective than most other stock market investing approaches (better returns, less time required and much simpler to implement).

But it’s important to get the right knowledge, understand how good index investing works, build a personal investment plan and avoid costly mistakes.

That is what I will cover in this online workshop.

So here is what you will learn in this session:

“It's empowering and exciting to think that you can really make your money work for you in a reasonable way, not in a casino style where it's either a winner or loser, but in a robust, thoughtful way. It can definitely be a much better option than just having it lying on your bank account.”

“Index investing makes you less dependent on stuff like a pension from the government, for which there's quite a bit of uncertainty.”
