Event description


Accelerate Your Finance Career and Stock Portfolio

Do you want to get ahead in your finance education? Or do you want to land jobs with top hedge funds or investment banks?

Practical stock investing skills and knowledge will give you the edge in an important interview or in your degree.

Learn from former Tiger Global analyst and Harvard alumni, Jamie Beaton.

What are universities actually covering?

a. Finance degrees – mostly theoretical information taught by academics who are functionally economists; largely driven by the EMH or academic financiers who are often focused on purely quantitative analysis.

b. Liberal arts degrees – no specificity in stock-picking, finance or accounting.

c. Commerce degrees – some engagement with basic finance concepts but no stock-picking.

The result?

Weakness in stock-picking ability in young people in general, and a requirement for people to develop skills on-the-job at investment firms or in MBA programs. For even the most equipped finance graduates, there is still an immense gap between your skill set at graduation, and the skill set required to begin successful equity investments.

Let us help you with this.

Tiger Management hedge fund analyst Jamie Beaton will deliver an intensive two-day workshop on the fundamentals of stock investing.

Join the "Young Investors & Consultants Network" Facebook group to discuss stock investing and consulting.

Who is Jamie Beaton?

Jamie attended Harvard University, completing a Bachelor and Masters in Applied Mathematics-Economics two years ahead of schedule.

At the age of 19, Jamie joined Tiger Management, the hedge fund founded by billionaire Julian Robertson. As the youngest analyst in the company’s history, Jamie managed more than $200 million USD in positions, generated ideas, implemented quantitative trading processes, and met with management teams around the world.

In 2016, Jamie was the youngest person in the world to be admitted to Stanford Graduate School of Business’ elite MBA program, which has an acceptance rate of just 6.1%.

Jamie has raised more than $47 million AUD in capital for his Edutech start-up, Crimson Education. He is a Forbes 30 under 30 recipient, New Zealand Student Entrepreneur of the Year 2016, and New Zealand Young Innovator of the Year 2016.

What is Fundamental Equity Analysis?

Fundamental Equity Analysis is the style of investing used by Warren Buffett, Julian Robertson, George Soros, Bill Ackman, Carl Icahn and Seth Klarman. It is the most consistent style of investing ever developed, but it is also the style of investing that is the most difficult to master.

For two days you will not only learn valuable information about stock investing, but also practical knowledge on how to perform fundamental equity analysis.

Other companies that have less content and less experience will charge between $1,200 to $5,000 for this type of workshop. Not Crimson. We believe that ambition and hunger for knowledge should dictate your success rather than the size of your wallet. We believe that all university students and professionals should have the opportunity to learn from the best and pursue a successful career in finance.

*Note - Student tickets must show student ID at the door.

In addition to two days of invaluable insights, you will receive an intensive reading list of essential content.

The Venue

We are excited to be presenting this workshop at the amazing Chau Chak building, the business school of UTS.
