In over 30 years’ experience, including as Partner and Head of Research at huge multi-billion dollar funds, I was responsible for enormously high-stake positions. Sometimes 9-figures on a single stock. As a trainer, top firms like Schroder’s, Fidelity and Baillie Gifford deploy me to train their analysts.

This is the only course of its type led by an experienced trainer who has reached the summit of investment analysis.

What you'll learn in the Analyst Academy

Accounts are daunting to the untrained, but offer outstanding and fast insight to those who know. In this section Stephen shows you how to approach them, the balance sheet, P&L, cash flow and audit report, accounting policies and notes. All with fascinating worked examples.

In this section Stephen explains the research approaches used at multi-billion hedge funds. How to find ideas, how to check they are valid before going on a deep-dive, company and management. We cover the issue of business quality in detail.

Your guide to the proper valuation of stocks. Starting with a two-parter on valuation theory, and how to value stocks in real life. Stephen explains which multiples to use when, and covers a range of valuation techniques for different circumstances.

How to assemble a robust portfolio and how to keep a watch on it. An in-depth study addressing factors like macroeconomics, when to use technical analysis and most importantly, when to sell.

Stephen Clapham, a world-leading analyst & trainer.
