Whether you are a complete beginner or an investor who has lost their way, this course is for you. It will enable you to invest on the London Stock Exchange with complete confidence, knowing that you have the skills and information to make sensible decisions.

We start from the absolute beginning, learning what the stockmarket is all about, what shares are and what your rights as a shareholder are.

Stockmarket investing is much simpler and less expensive than it used to be. This course will show you how to find the information that is readily available and that companies are obliged to share. It will enable you to assess this information in order to make sound judgements on which companies to invest in.

You will be shown how to set up a trading account with a stockbroker, how to buy and sell shares and how to build a solid portfolio. You will learn the benefits of share ownership compared with the alternative forms of investing.

This is not about getting rich quickly. Genuine long-term investing is about building your wealth slowly and surely, something you will be able to do alongside every private and professional investor.
