I recently wrote about investing like a pro. If you remember, Tom had asked Jerry on where would be the best place to start learning about investing, and Jerry recommended that Tom check out InvestSmart, an investor empowerment initiative by the Securities Commission Malaysia.
So, have you checked out www.InvestSmartSC.my? Have you started investing? If you have, great! If you haven’t, well don’t feel too bad – Maybe you’ve been a bit too busy catching Pokémon at the nearest shopping mall? (*cough cough hint hint* am looking at you, most Malaysians!) Either way, how convenient would it be if you could somehow go “lepak” at the mall, catch your Pokémon’s and yet still find the time to learn about or do some ACTUAL investing?

Guess what! InvestSmart heard you loud and clear and are making it happen at INVESTSMART FEST 2016 @ Mid Valley Exhibition Centre (MVEC), Kuala Lumpur from Friday to Sunday, 23 to 25 September 2016! And yes, I’m told there are loads of Pokéstops located near and within MVEC!

INVESTSMART FEST 2016 is the third edition of InvestSmart’s biggest ever retail investor event, gathering capital market institutions, associations, industry players and relevant government agencies under one roof. So, head on over to INVESTSMART FEST 2016 to experience a fun investment carnival atmosphere for the entire family, with an emphasis on digital elements and technology.

From traditional carnival games such as duck hunt and basketball shoot, to fun photo opportunities with a replica ferris wheel and carousel, there’s something for everyone at INVESTSMART FEST 2016! They’ve also lined up many acclaimed Subject Matter Experts to teach you how to make your money work harder by investing in capital market products such as shares, unit trusts, warrants, bonds, derivatives, private retirement schemes (PRS) and equity crowdfunding.

With more than 40 booths featuring brokers, fund managers, PRS providers, and equity crowdfunding operators, INVESTSMART FEST 2016 is the perfect platform for you to learn about, discover and invest in a variety of products to expand your portfolio. Best of all, this event is open to the public and entry is FREE!

To make it sweeter, INVESTSMART FEST 2016 will also feature a digital arena, mystery celebrity appearance, lucky and “Mega” lucky draws, a dedicated Play Area for Kids, free popcorn, ice-cream, cotton candy, FREE goodie bags and so much more. For me, this is definitely one of the more interesting, fun and inclusive approaches to investor education I have ever seen!

So, instead of just hunting for Pokémon at Mid Valley this month, do yourself a favor by starting to plan for the long term future and learning to invest by checking out INVESTSMART FEST from 23-25 September 2016.
