"I want my courses to be available at a reasonable price so that everyone can benefit from them. I do not teach for a living: I share my years of expertise to help and add real value to people who are looking to develop their financial acumen and perhaps want to gain a better understanding of trading and investing. To offer you the best value I can, I have also developed an exam that allows you to test your knowledge. After 20 years of expertise, I now feel it is my duty to contribute with clear and practical financial education that hardly exists in an educational industry so often driven by commercial financial products," Lex van Dam.
