understanding investing

Understanding Investing is more than a course about investing: It is a fascinating journey through space and time during which you will meet many incredible personalities, both real and fictitious, illustrious and ordinary, and learn not only about their remarkable tales but also their investment exploits and the decision-making process they adopt - and its consequences! 

The six "Metro Stations" of the course will introduce you to risk & return, risk profiling, diversification, asset classes, portfolio construction and finally to our unique Magic Back Box. This is our "what-if" analysis engine, working tirelessly behind the scenes to generate a variety of lively graphs, tables and diagrams for illustrating or elaborating key investment concepts and ideas. 


In fact, it is fair to say that the Black Box is a versatile computational tool which helps us in our aim of demystifying a subject which for many is shrouded in mystery!
