Want to build an investment portfolio that helps you retire early, vacation often, and leave some money for your kids...

...that shields your investments from downturns and eases the pain of corrections and crashes...

While giving you a proven framework for making careful investment choices to maximize returns and minimize taxes and fees?

Get ready...

Because in this course I take you by the hand and behind-the-scenes to reveal the evidence-based investment knowledge Wall Street insiders and shrewd financial advisers either don't know or won't tell you about building, growing, and protecting your hard-earned wealth.

Inside you'll discover:

  • The 3 “hidden” elements of a portfolio that never loses.
  • Why bonds and gold will NOT protect your portfolio from uncertain market conditions (and what every investor should have instead).
  • A secret “trick” for using your age to balance your assets and manage your risk.
  • The #1 fund you MUST use as the foundation of your portfolio (and why you shouldn’t use this other type of fund many beginning investors later regret).
  • The 5 asset classes your portfolio needs and 15 specific investments you should make in each one.
  • How to (legally) shred your tax bill in half (or more) using 2 “braindead” simple strategies.
  • How to turn a costly failing investment - one that is hemorrhaging money - into yet another method for saving taxes and balancing your portfolio that EVERY investor needs to practice.
  • The power of writing your own “investment policy” (this is what separates the dreamers who don’t take action from the successful investors taking a second vacation and soaking up their retirement).
  • A complete template for writing your own investment policy that painlessly guides you through every step so you don’t have to do it from scratch.
  • How to reap thousands of dollars in higher returns from your portfolio by doing NOTHING (seriously, but it’s a lot harder than you think).
  • 27 portfolio models you can instantly use that tell you the exact percentages you should have for every asset class based on your age range.
  • How to get a 4.07% higher return by investing LESS money month-to-month than someone who invests a lot of money in one lump sum (an excellent strategy for investors with little wealth to start).
  • The truth about real estate investment trusts (REITs) and why (or why not) you should have them while owning a home.
  • How to beat 95% of Wall Street’s money managers with this one type of fund (hint: it’s not a mutual or hedge fund).
  • A step-by-step (and easy) worksheet for calculating your “margin of safety” - the percentage of your portfolio you never risk that protects you from uncertain markets.
  • 3 private letters from Warren Buffett to his shareholders at Berkshire Hathaway loaded with expert investment insights you can only get from a master, including 2 warnings about how to protect your money and why you should avoid financial advisers.
  • Absolute proof from the S&P itself that just because a stock or fund has performed well in the past does NOT mean you should invest in it (and what to look for instead).
  • Plus so much more.

At first, I was unsure this would be the right class for brushing up my investing acumen. I'm managing my own SEP IRA retirement portfolio. I've been able to apply some of the lessons and pointers provided into my own strategy. I'm also using the template investment policy statement to keep my plan on track. I'm glad I enrolled and I would highly recommend it!

I recently switched from investing in individual stocks to ETFs. It wasn't easy. But the model ETF portfolios in this class have been an incredible help. The sheer number of ETF choices is overwhelming but Ron's suggestions helped me to focus on the funds that are building blocks and foundational. I definitely feel more confident about where I'm heading.

I was worried this class would be too complicated and hard to understand but it wasn't. Ron has a knack for explaining financial stuff in a digestible manner. This is my second course taught by Ron and his insights are worth every penny. BTW, he also hosts an excellent podcast called the Index Investing Show. Check it out.

Even though I've been investing for over 18 years, I feel like taking this course has helped me to sharpen my skills. I especially like the Margin of Safety worksheet and strategies for managing market risk. It's already helped me to reduce my stress level when the stock market is tanking.

After inheriting money from my parents, I was forced to learn about investing. They had a financial advisor who did OK for them, but it wasn't for me. I have trust issues. I've had to unwind some of the investments they owned which were too costly and underperformed. While I'm not yet done re-constructing the entire portfolio, Ron's class has helped to confirm my use of index ETFs. It's also helped me to be better prepared for market risk and to be better diversified.

The investing principles described in this course are exactly what I was looking for. They don't sway too much toward one rigid formula but embrace an all-weather investing method. Outstanding delivery and content!

This classes from Ron saved me many time in finding the ETF investments for my portfolio. It was easy to understand and I will take more classes soon.

Although some of the ETFs in this course are different than Canada, I found the strategies, research and worksheets to be extremely valuable. Each lecture is just the right length too.

I haven't lived in the U.S. for over a decade but I still invest in U.S. stocks and funds. This course put me on path to pick the right ETFs for my situation. The model portfolios are great. I particularly liked the MARGIN OF SAFETY advice given. The workseet for calculating the right dollar amount is just what I needed.
