Speaking events

I spoke at an RACV event at Melbourne's Bourke Street at the end of last week, where I discussed personal finances, approaches to the share markets and property investment.

To book me for speaking events, please contact via email at: Sydney@AllenWargent.com

Also as a heads up, look out for me in the next round of the infamous Sydney Morning Herald "Shares Race".

Hopefully I will beat the dartboard and the astrologer, although of course there are never any guarantees! 

The winner is oftentimes the person who picks the riskiest stocks, thus employing the great leverage associated with the 'penny dreadfuls'.

Meanwhile, those who only compete once and fear making a fool of themselves often pick the lower risk blue chip or well-diversified stocks in order to assure themselves (hopefully) of a mid-table ranking.

Stay tuned...
