Learning Platform

What does Lumovest do?

Yes, you’ll gain access to ALL our courses upon subscription. You’ll be able to access all the video lessons and course materials, such as summaries and worksheets. You can choose to take whichever course you’d like. We recommend following the curriculum but you’ll have access to all our courses.

Does Lumovest teach trading?

We do not teach trading. We teach investment analysis. Whereas investing involves rigorous analysis of the long-term fundamentals of the company underlying the stocks, trading is often more concerned about short-term stock price movements.

How exactly will I learn finance and investing? What’s the learning format?

You will learn finance and investing through Lumovest’s online courses. Each course is composed of video lessons (introduces the concepts), worksheets (learn by doing), and quizzes (validate & retain what you learned).

Is finance easy to learn?

We’re really good at teaching beginners and we try to make it as easy as it can for you. We break complex concepts down into snippets and explain the concepts in simple English, so it’s easy to follow along.

Do you have a recommended list of books to read?

Yes, we have a list of investing books that we’d recommend. You can find it here. They’re complementary with our online courses and you should read them alongside our courses for best results.

Why can’t I just learn finance from books?

You’ll never learn finance just from the books because books can only explain the concepts on a high-level. They tend to lack in details and they can’t show you exactly how to perform the analysis. The Lumovest courses can.
