The ICON 2015 conference is a complete package for those who want to know about personal finance, investments, and market updates locally and globally. No, we are not organisers of the event, but rather we are a fan of this event every year. Not only you will learn directly from the speakers/authors themselves, you will get to talk and take a picture with them. You think they are all serious people? Oh they are not! They crack the funny side of them so pretty cool.
I, together with other volunteers, have attended this event for 3 years in a row, courtesy of Angat Pilipinas, our selfless organisation that helps provide practical financial education to different sectors of the world. Through Angat Pilipinas as volunteers, our group has always been blessed to receive complimentary tickets to attend ICON to learn and spread the word. Thanks to Mr. Randell Tiongson.
So, without further ado, let me share to you the key take aways I learned from ICON 2015.
Things to consider when investing by Randell Tiongson
- Time Frame
- Risk Tolerance
- No such thing as “best investments”, an investment must suit to your personal profile.
- fear of losing money
- fear of what other people will say
