Instructor Biography

Kas Education, Knowlege is Power

Kas Education was founded in 2012 by Thulitha Ruwin with the aim of assisting students around the world to improve their lives through better learning. We create content that is relevant and easy to understand. Financial education is at the core of our philosophy as we believe it's a crucial area that needs more attention.

Ruwin has been an investor for the past 6 years and coached hundreds of students on investing and improving their finances. He is a follower of Benjamin Graham and his value investing techniques. Even-though investing was a passion since his early age, studying the styles of Graham and Warren Buffett completely changed the way he looked at the stock market.

The main philosophy behind this course is that investing does not require superior skills or the ability to predict the market or the economy. Mental discipline and intelligent effort focused on analyzing companies are the keys to success.
