First Fiancial Studio Days

We exist to create clarity and purpose in life. No one can afford to make mistakes with their investments. We’ve found that most destructive investment decisions can be eliminated by having clarity on how investing really works, and by having an inspiring purpose for your money.

Our mission is to be a contribution to the world through education and coaching of academic investing principles. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to learn and utilize the Nobel Prize winning, empirically tested, academic investing principles.
