Seedly's Guide: Courses to Guide You On Your Investment Journey

Seedly's Guide: Courses to Guide You On Your Investment Journey

Ming Feng

Here’s an open secret about the things we learn in schools – instead of learning critical life skills, kids are taught to memorise information.

In years to come, this practice we have will come back to haunt us when it comes to personal finance.

We do have some possible theories (not enough for a thesis) on why personal finance is not taught in Singapore schools in one of our previous article. Some of the main reasons being:

    • Personal finance is not a subject that can be tested meaningfully.
    • The possible lack of qualified instructors or teachers for the subject (will Warren Buffett ever be keen to give us lecture in secondary school?)
    • The economy would suffer dramatically should everyone becomes really financially savvy overnight.

Of course, that is not an indication that we never start picking up personal finance ever. Investment courses become the go-to channel for Singaporeans to get them started on this whole new journey of learning.

Deciding on the best course is very much like an investment.

  • Go for a course that is well within your budget.
  • Enroling into a lousy course is like making a loss in your investment.
  • The best kind of courses are the kind that yields high Return on investments (ROI)

Things to look out for when signing up for a personal finance course

Before you go on and sign up for some of the courses which might have interest you, here are some steps and advice that can help you out.

  • Find a course that is within your budget
    Not attending that course that costs you a bomb does not necessarily mean that you are losing out. With information available online, investing more time to read up on the topic works too.
  • Free course may not necessarily be a good thing
    While free course sounds good, there are times where they may try to upsell a package or membership at the end of the course. Always do your due diligence before signing up.
  • Real user reviews
    While it is convenient to head over to a website and be flooded with good reviews on the course on their website, these reviews might be curated and are not genuine. Unbiased real user feedback on these courses can be found on forums or Seedly Personal Finance Community, be it our Facebook Group or QnA.
