Salim and Tom Yuen, who will cover all aspects of the financial market – stocks, futures, portfolio management and long term investments, in two days.
Emphasising on client education, this year’s iFest theme is “Transcend the trader/investor in you” and caters to both the Mandarin and English speaking crowd by having 2 separate sessions. In addition, these investment specialists are called ‘mentors’ because they will be coaching the audience in a comprehensive manner so that attendees will be able to understand new strategies and level up in terms of knowledge.
Beginners as well as Intermediate traders or investors can start their learning journey with half-day sessions on 27 July. They will hear from industry veteran Willie Tan (@Tan Ai Ming), who has over 30 years of experience in the financial industry and has been featured in local and Malaysian media. He is accompanied by Eric Hu, a private-banker-turned-consultant who will share his portfolio management expertise and the secrets behind how multi-millionaires structure investments. Also on the exciting panel are investment experts Dr Robin Han and Nicholas Wang Zilong, both of whom are also regularly featured on local radio and newspapers. Nicholas Wang Zilong will talk about trading gold futures.
The keynote speaker for Phillip iFest 2013 is Mike Bellafiore, a professional proprietary trader who co-founded SMB Capital in New York City and is also the author of the ‘trading classic’ “One Good Trade”. He will be in Singapore to official launch his second book “The Playbook” in Asia together with PhillipCapital and during iFest, Bellafiore will share insights into how professional traders plan, execute and review their trades in order to be successful. Expert traders will gain extra mentorship if they attend the special ‘live’ trading session with Bellafiore as the US market opens on Mon, 29 July and learn from one of the very best on how to make one good trade again and again.
