Diploma of Company Analysis and Portfolio Management

Learn the investment strategies of successful investors!

Learn life-changing knowledge and skills

Our government accredited Diploma of Company Analysis and Portfolio Management (11099NAT) is delivered online and is for anyone wishing to learn the strategies of successful investors.

Learn investment strategies that work

If you wish to be a successful investor, it is important to know that the majority of investors fail. This includes professional investors, such as fund managers and financial advisers.

The data is conclusive, year after year the majority of professional investors underperform, so if you are thinking that investing is a difficult and challenging undertaking, you are 100% correct.

That all said, if you know the investment strategies that work, it is like using a map to find a street on the other side of a city … it is relatively straightforward. In contrast, without a map, the likelihood is high that it will take much longer to find the destination, if it can be found at all.
