A BIGScribe Event

“I want to start investing this year!”

Did you promise yourself to start investing (or put a little more effort into your investing) at the start of the year as well?

Along side with eating healthy and exercising regularly, investing is one of the most popular New Year Resolutions that people make every 1st Jan.

In a blink of an eye, we are now beginning our entry into the 2nd half of 2017. Have you kept up with your promise to focus on your investing in 2017?

What You Have Told Us About Your Investing Bumps 

BIGScribe has run 4 successful sell out investing workshops that features only applicable, practical and up-to-date investing concepts and processes since 2016.

Through the interaction with our participants (you!), we have noticed that many find investing important and recognise a need to learn and start investing as soon as possible.

However, a myriad of factors tend to get in the way.

 

dont despair

The biggest factor that continues to deter most people is the lack of confidence to actually get started.

Many of us are NOT trained in finance. And learning to invest can feel like an intimidating journey with no end in sight.

"There's so much to learn, how would I know if I am ready to start investing for real profits, without putting my capital into unnecessary risks?"

We get it.

After all, that's how many of us started.

Now, we can't do the investing for you. But we can provide you something that may be even better.

We can reach out to successful investors and prominent financial bloggers and get them to share about their processes.

And, we can help build your ability to invest confidently.

So that you can invest for yourself and grow your money without having to rely on anyone else.

In July, we are gathering our biggest, most 'star-studded' panel of speakers. And we gave them this short brief;

"Show us what you are doing for your own investing today"

Walls will come down, 'secrets' will be revealed. And best of all, no selling will be done at the:

Investor-Exchange

The Investors Exchange 2017 aims to provide you with a platform to exchange investing ideas, concepts and styles both with fellow investors.

This July, we have gathered fellow financial bloggers, and some of our friends from the finance industry to share about their investing styles, what they see in the current market and how they would be navigating the economy going forward.

The Investors Exchange will feature 7 speakers who will be sharing valuable insights into their investing styles and you will be learning a ton of practical knowledge that could potentially help improve your investing.

 

Investor-Exchange

There will only be 265 seats available. This session will definitely over deliver on the value. We have sold out on all previous events as participants know the amount of value they get vastly exceed their ticket fees.

No tickets will be sold at the door as we are strictly not allowed to exceed the maximum capacity of the event venue. Any last minute entries will be turn away at the door.
