For safety reasons, all the Executive Education classes are held in line with the WHO and Luxembourg Ministry of Health guidelines. The size of the group is limited to 25 participants.
The emphasis of the course will be on learning how to estimate the true values of equity investments, compare these with market prices, and make intelligent and rational investment decisions. We will provide you with the tools and methods to assess intrinsic enterprise values based on a firm’s tangible and intangible assets and its sustainable cashflows. You will collect and analyze data and build your confidence to independently make prudent investment decisions.
Individual investors and portfolio managers will learn to apply the value investing methodology and become better equipped to uncover opportunities that others may miss.
But also financial advisors and other professionals in the financial services industry, as well as entrepreneurs and managers will benefit from the analytical methods and insights into value creation, growth, and profitability.
