Focused Investing philosophy

We believe in keeping things simple. Focused investing is about increasing returns without increasing risk. But more importantly it is about creating competent and confident investors. Courses are designed to simplify investing by teaching students how to evaluate businesses and learn what to pay attention to and what to ignore. Focused Investing is about empowering people to make financial decisions and be confident in them. These principles can be applied to: 

  1. Real Estate
  2. Stocks and Bonds
  3. Currencies and Commodities
  4. Public and Private Companies
  5. sales, negotiations, interviews

Why Us?

We offer several programs designed for beginners and experts. We have cost effective, straight to the point education. Other programs promise to teach you to make hundreds of percent per year using just a few techniques. That is not what we are about. These claims should be taken with a grain of salt. Instead we want to teach you to do better than average consistently, and help you minimize losses. Successful investors focus on not losing money first. We will teach you to do this and it does not require a lot of time or constantly checking your computer screen.
