Introduction to Stock Market Investing  


The aim of this course will be to teach you how to avoid the mistakes most investors in order to produce real returns on you investments. We will cover the basics of stock valuation, money management, asset allocation and portfolio management.

Investing in equities over the long term is a proven way to grow your wealth. Our local market, the JSE, has produced Real Returns of 7+ % a year on average over the last century. That means even after compensating for inflation, an investment in the stock market should have returned 1000 times your initial investment over the last hundred years. In reality, most lay-investors barely beat inflation, meaning that after accounting for inflation their investments are basically stagnant.


  • Gain an understanding of how stocks are valued
  • Learn about asset allocation which is responsible for over 80% of the performance of real world portfolios
  • Gain the ability to rank various investment opportunities and to spot deals that are too good to be true
  • Learn how the market functions
  • Gain insight into the way the economy impact the price of stocks
  • Gain the ability to manage your investment outlays
