Selecting your strategy 
Doug Turek, Professional Wealth

Before exploring approaches to share investing, Doug will outline why it is important to find a strategy to suit your personality, your lifestyle and financial needs. Are you investing for the long-term? Do you require an ongoing cash-flow? What level of risk are you prepared to take? As you progress on your investing journey you will, through trial and error, refine your strategy. Doug will outline how to document your strategy and monitor it to check it against expectations.

Constructing a portfolio using fundamental analysis
Elio D'Amato, Lincoln Indicators

Renowned by long-term investors, fundamental analysis provides investors with the comfort of knowing the intrinsic value of a share. Elio will outline the pros and cons and the type of investor this approach would suit. He will detail how to construct a long-term diversified portfolio and how to benchmark to the All Ordinaries Accumulation Index. Whether investing for growth or income, Elio will outline how to apply sound fundamental analysis principles to your share selection.

11.30am - 12.30pm

Trading and technical analysis
Robert Brain, ATAA

What type of person do you need to be to spend your day trading? How much time and what resources should you dedicate? How do you go about documenting and testing your system? What amount should you start off with? How many shares should you invest in? Do traders make money? Robert will address these and all facets of what it takes to be a trader using technical analysis to choose your buy and sell triggers.

12.30pm - 1.15pm


1.15pm - 2.45pm

Combining fundamental and technical analysis
Alan Hull, Author

Markets are efficient in adapting and foreseeing the near future. It was the original discovery by Charles Dow as markets foresaw economic turns well in advance. Often the technical observation of price can precede these large fundamental moves. The challenge for every market investor and trader is to take the fundamental analysis and ask does technical analysis support the investor’s view. Alan will outline the key fundamentals and trends to use to help you refine this strategy to suit your time, your investment horizon and resources available.

2.45pm - 3.15pm Afternoon tea

3.15pm - 4.15pm

The passive approach to share investing
Claire Aitchison, Independent Investment Research

The stress and time of the research required to select individual stocks is daunting for many. This session will look at how to access the expertise of others without the need for a financial planner. Claire will show you how you can achieve diversification, using index funds, ETFs or LICs. You have the benefit of having professionals manage your money but still have exposure to the underlying investments. As with any approach there are pros and cons. Graha
