Millionaire Teacher

Millionaire Teacher
The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School
Andrew Hallam

Obviously, being a former teacher, there is no chance I would pass up a book with the title Millionaire Teacher!

I was not disappointed.

I know a lot of people have a desire to invest in shares but have a road block because they don’t understand it or don’t have any clue as to where to start.

This book is your answer.

Millionaire Teacher is an excellent guide for learning about investing in shares. Andrew doesn’t try to teach you how to ‘beat the market’ or how to ‘pick the best shares’. This book teaches simple strategies for how to invest in the share market without having to be a financial expert. Andrew explains how the share market works and how to invest in a simple and systematic way that minimises risk and maximises returns.

There are no fancy strategies or trading going on here. In simple laymen’s terms, Andrew explains index funds, bonds and exchange traded funds (ETF) and how to invest in them.

He outlines specific strategies and funds that can be invested in, in America, Canada, Great Britain, Singapore and Australia.

What surprised me was how simple investing can be, and Andrew has such a relatable and down to earth nature.  I especially enjoyed how he uses Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as an analogy for how the stock market works.

I found this book very practical and informative. I especially appreciated the information on why it is important to invest in low cost funds and how paying higher fees can have a significant effect on the return of your investment.  Maybe I’m a little bias because of my former occupation but I love love love that Andrew was a school teacher and not only did he educate himself and take responsibility for his own finances he also went out of his way to educate others. What a guy!

Seriously ladies, if you want to learn how to invest in the share market and do it in a simple and effective way that minimises risk, get this book.

The Little Book of Common Sense Investing

The Little Book of Common Sense Investing
The only way to guarantee your fair share of stock market returns
John C. Bogle

John C. Bogle was the founder and former chairman of the Vanguard Group. In 1975 Vanguard created the world’s first index mutual fund and still offers low cost index funds today. This is a book about investing in low cost index funds and the reasoning behind why this is an effective long-term investment strategy. If you don’t know what index funds are or have little or no knowledge of the basics of investing in shares this book is not quite right for you yet. I would suggest studying up on the basics firsts by visiting the ASX website and doing one of their free online courses in shares or start by reading the Millionaire Teacher by Andrew Hallam to understand the fundamentals. I personally think investing in low cost index funds is a great strategy and Warren Buffet one of the most successful investors of all time also favours it.
