- Why do I need money/finance education? I get CNBC and subscribe to financial newspapers. Why do I need Money-Wizards?
While business channels, dailies and magazines are useful from an information perspective, their interests are not always aligned with that of their customers. Money- Wizards being an independent organization, the interests of its customers and participants come the FIRST and the FOREMOST.
It is our strong belief that availability of information at very low or no cost and on line trading platforms have made the role of a conventional broker and financial advisor largely redundant. Therefore a knowledgeable investor can successfully invest without the help of a financial intermediary, and thereby save valuable money. Secondly, financial instruments/products have become more complex and their pricing are increasingly sophisticated, and not very transparent to the ordinary investor. Thirdly, relaxation in the regulations for investing in overseas markets, and exchanges for new asset classes like commodities and currencies mean that proper knowledge and education is essential if you want to capitalize on these opportunities. Thus, there is a need for ordinary investors to enhance their knowledge and skill in finance related topics, if they are to maximize their risk adjusted returns. Money-Wizards provides you comprehensive education to take advantage of these investment opportunities in a profitable manner.

- Are you a broker?
No, we are not a broker. We do not represent any financial institution or organization.

- Are you endorsed by any of the leading financial brands?
No. We are not. Any kind of endorsement by any financial services firm would necessarily mean that we return the favour- by pushing their products , regardless of their merit or suitability to the customers. We are not interested in touting products and services at the expense of our customers.
- Can we become "an expert" just by attending any of your courses?
