New from Real Vision Academy...

The Real Investing Course

Timeless investing principles from the world's best investors.

The brand new Real Investing Course from Real Vision gives you tools to become a more successful investor in the real world.

You’ll learn from the world’s best investors and develop your own ‘nose’ for investing. All in less than 10 hours. And did we mention it’s bloody entertaining, too?

Thousands of Hours of Insight — Delivered in Less Than 10

Become a better and more confident investor by learning from the best.

Becoming a better investor is a lifelong journey. And not an easy one. You have to learn from the world’s best investors without blindly copying them.

You have to apply textbook knowledge in the real world (always tricky). You have to avoid charlatans (increasingly tricky). You have to avoid information and data paralysis.

Urgh.

All this pain is why we developed The Real Investing Course.

  1. It’s game-changing — delivering insights you won’t find anywhere else from dozens of professional investors.
  2. It’s super-charged — distilling thousands of hours of knowledge and delivering it to you in less than 10.
  3. It’s lock, stock and barrel — Real Vision acquired and built on the Lex van Dam Trading Academy, a blockbuster investing course based on the frameworks developed at one of the top London trading desks.

Oh, and forget about bland PowerPoint presentations by somebody in a shirt…

The Real Investing Course is filmed in an underground bunker, a cinema, and a bar, so you know it’s definitely not boring…

The Real Investing Course includes:

5 Modules & 31 Lessons

✓ The fundamentals of real world investing in 10 hours

✓ Transcripts, handbooks, takeaways, rabbit hole resources

Professional investors as your guides

Community access

Real Vision PLUS membership

Access a Single Source of Learning That Brings It ALL Together

It won't make you George Soros overnight. It will help you become a more successful, independent investor. Here's how:

Once you start The Real Investing Course, we’ll immediately guide you through the course Manifesto, and a 9-minute guide on How To Navigate This Journey. Then it’s time to get started with course curriculum.

The Game of Investing

It’s easy to think the Game of Investing is rigged, or that the markets (or their players) want to mess you up. Reality is that it’s about assessing inputs of information to generate money-making investments. Simple(!)

This 3-lesson module focuses on the broader game, some of its core rules, and some principles to help you navigate the playing field, the players, and the mistakes they make.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How to figure out your own investing style instead of relying on others
  • Why the idea of “Mr. Market” is B.S. (and so is the idea of an investing “holy grail”)
  • The actual first steps you need to take to conquer the inner game of investing
  • The 4 core market truths you need to put on a Post-It beside your computer
  • How to assess your ‘5 types of capital’ (not just your financial capital)
  • How to use context to rein in the wall of information we’re all bombarded with everyday
  • And more.

How You’ll Learn:

  • From the pros including Denise Shull, Jared Dillian, Peter Brandt, Mike Green and more
  • 3 core lessons hosted by Real Vision’s Maggie Lake
  • A module handbook, plus extra resources to go further down the rabbit hole
  • Chatting with fellow Academy members on Real Vision

At the End You Will:

Be an emotionally more self-aware investor… Learn (or confirm) your investing style… Curate your information diet wisely.

The Stuff That Drives Markets

Market drivers are a kind of Russian doll ecosystem, with a number of trends of various time horizons co-existing at any one point in time.

This 7-module lesson will give you a solid foundation in understanding co-existing (and seemingly conflicting) trends – because if the trends don’t make sense to you, you’ll feel in the dark with your portfolio…

  • How the hell you’re meant to integrate different categories of market drivers into one portfolio

  • How to set and track market drivers yourself

Learn from the Best Professional Investors in the World

By the pros. For the people.

You know that saying — “If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur”?

Same deal with investing. If you choose a crappy course from a so-called “guru” you’re in for an expensive time.

With The Real Investing Course, you’ll learn from the best professional investors in the world. Meet your hosts on this journey…

And Featuring...

The Real Investing Course distills valuable takeaways from thousands of hours of Real Vision interviews that are otherwise lost in the archives. Okay — maybe not exactly lost, but we dug deep for the gems so you don’t have to.

Along the way, you’ll meet:

Learn How YOU Want (And What You Need)

For the speed-readers, here are the words beta-testers kept using to describe The Real Investing Course…

Clarity

This is not the type of course that fires a ton of jargon at you at breakneck speed. Or the type of course that fires academic terminology at you without grounding it in the real world.

Power

The Real Investing Course unlocks the value of 'regular' Real Vision content by finally putting the full picture together. After all, finding valuable content is half the battle in today’s information bull market.

Entertainment

What do a bar, an underground bunker, and a cinema have to do with investing education? They’re filming locations for The Real Investing Course. Not a classroom in sight…

Collective

There is no other course in the world that brings together insights from so many professional investors with skin in the game.

Community

You’ll be discussing everything from the building blocks to how core principles work in reality, united with a community of investors (that’s you) to accelerate your learning together.

Efficiency

Who doesn’t love the idea of getting thousands of hours worth of knowledge delivered in under 10?

The Early Results Are In

A brand new course with feedback? That's the power of beta-testing with a crowd.

Before bringing The Real Investing Course to the world, we beta-tested it with first a few hundred, and then a few thousand people.

The advice we got from them has already helped us make the course even better (we want your advice when you join, too). And the feedback has been phenomenal…

Love the 3 discussing in the pub. Loads of alpha there. I need some time to digest it all but great stuff. I was relying on input from others before because I didn’t think I was capable of making my own decisions but after this I’ll be taking charge of my own trades.

— Paul W.

Wow – I am 3 quarters through and I feel like Neo in The Matrix when, after receiving a huge download of data he sits up and announces to the world – “I know Kung Fu!” Fantastic.

— Gary W.

Early impressions – bloody amazing!!! I am extremely excited.

— Tej D.

Many things I have seen before are generally trying to make you like the individual who is teaching. If you follow this and make your own thesis, trading strategy you really should become quite independent.

— TheEmotionlessRobot

In the time it takes you to read a single book you can listen to and even engage 10 super pros to absorb their decades of experience. One hour watching RV has the potential to change your life. One hour of cable financial media you spent half of it watching commercials and the other half barely dipping below the substance of the headline.

— JRMSr

There’s really a great range of top investors here who provide fantastic advice.

— Paul

Exactly the kind of high-quality, grounded, and honest market education that brought me to RV in the 1st place.

— TheRealMojo

I am like 1/3 my way through the course, taking my time going through the resource, and I must say wow. Thank you RV team for providing real value. Eager to continue the course, keep learning, and apply what I am learning.

— FightClub

I really enjoyed it, the delivery style is very RV and makes this generally dry content easily consumable. It really is a course on how to think about markets and start building a framework for investing…

— Bexley

Save on The Real Investing Course

We've brought the cost down to hundreds for a course that "should" cost thousands.

Here’s the deal with The Real Investing Course — it’s designed to be immediately useful to you, even if you’re completely new to investing (or you’re more experienced)… Even if you’re sitting on the investing sidelines right now… and even if you don’t have much free time.

It’s the result of combing thousands of hours of Real Vision footage, spending thousands of hours on developing and filming the course, and using a course that costs thousands of dollars — Lex Van Dam’s Million Dollar Traders Course — as our underlying structure.
