About The Course

“Lethargy bordering on sloth remains the cornerstone of our investment style: This year we neither bought nor sold a share of five of our six major holdings”
- Legendary investor Warren Buffet in his letter to shareholders. 

Complexity bias is our tendency to believe that complex solutions are better than simple ones, that any thing of value has to require a significant amount of effort and knowledge. But investing your money does not have to be complicated, and it definitely does not have to be  time consuming. 

In “The Lazy Guide to Investing”, Atul Sethi demystifies financial concepts and shows some insanely easy ways of using minimal effort to become a good investor.

  • Want decent returns without a crazy amount of risk
  • Desire to have a long term sustainable system
  • Believe in slow and steady growth
