Principles of Wealth Accumulation


The course was created in collaboration with Trendlab Finance Academy, the first to have created a software (Trendlab SIMULATOR) that replicates the financial decisions that each of us must make in the course of a lifetime. This allows you to get the most out of these key decisions by learning from your mistakes in a test environment and correcting your decisions before they are implemented in real life.

The course will give you the chance to use the Simulator to test your strategy over more than 100 years of market data and validate its performance across different market conditions.

Benefits of the Simulator
  • Practical hands-on learning makes it easy and fun.
  • Learn faster.
  • Test how different investments can turn your capital into a reliable source of income;
  • Avoid costly mistakes by testing different decisions in a real-life environment;
  • Create a better retirement plan with a software-based planning module.
  • Build confidence by testing decisions over 100 years of real-life data.
  • Acquire the analytical mindset of professionals.
  • Discover which investments are right for you.

The aim of the course is to teach the principles of personal wealth accumulation in a practical way. This program will guide you through the skills and knowledge on how to plan and execute your wealth accumulation strategy. You will gain the confidence to develop your own strategy to grow your wealth.

Participants will walk away with a step-by-step template to make profitable investment decisions in real life.
