About this course

Some skills are essential for every investor, and some are not. You don't have to learn how to invest as skillfully as Warren Buffet in order to be good at this. You just need to learn a few fundamental skills. Once that is done, you can add more advanced skills if you so desire, and if you have the time to work on it.
