Financial Literacy Programme 2017: Investment 101

Registration is Closed

We heard your needs to pick up crucial investment skills as young professionals to gain financial freedom. In collaboration with Bursa Malaysia, we are organising the Financial Literacy Programme to provide a platform for young corporate individuals to pick up fundamental skills in investment. With the aim of giving our members a top-down introduction to investment, we have put together a holistic programme that encompasses various instruments typically used by the retail investor, i.e. unit trusts, mutual funds, equities and derivatives (futures and options).

On top of providing theoretical, classroom-styled presentations, we have brought in experienced brokers to mentor participants over a practical futures trading session so that you will be able to apply what you have learned and have a feel for what it takes to be a successful investor.
