  • No specific software is needed to follow along with the course
  • A Google docs account or spreadsheet application is needed to view downloaded financial data


This course will introduce you to value growth investing, a method of investing that seeks out growth companies and identifies when they are good value for money. It is a relatively safe method of investing that builds on the guiding principles of Warren Buffett, the world’s most successful investor.

The course will also help you to decide whether investing is for you and is intended for beginner or intermediate investors, though some prior knowledge of the stock market would be helpful.

You will also be taken step-by-step through the process of screening for stocks online and downloading financial statements to import into a spreadsheet for further analysis.

It is not a course packed with investment theory since there are many good general investment courses around already. It is more practical and introduces a tried and tested system of investing that has returned 20-30% per year since 2001.

Course structure

The course takes you through a basic overview of investing in general and introduces you to the concepts of value growth investing using graphic intensive slideshows with voiceover.

You then get a walkthrough of the process of screening for stocks, downloading financial data and importing it into a spreadsheet, using recordings of the computer screen with voiceover (screencasts).
