Value Investing Summit 2018 (27th-28th January)

Organised by 8VIC, a subsidiary of ASX-listed 8I Holdings (the “Group”) and the largest value investing education services provider in Singapore and Malaysia, Value Investing Summit (“VIS”), is a two-day annual conference (27th-28th January 2018) featuring some of the best investing minds in Asia and around the world, where industry experts and investors alike meet to share ideas, discuss investment strategies and support one another to navigate the investing scenes internationally.

Now in its 7th year, VIS started with a humble audience of just 500 back in 2012 to the over 1,500-strong crowd today, where past and upcoming heavyweight speakers include Prof Dr Hermann Simon , Mr Vishal Khandelwal, Mr Kee Koon Boon, Mr Zhou Guiyin 周贵银先生. VIS is committed to promoting financial literacy to the general masses, especially on Value Investing, which represents one of the most well-known stock-choosing methods that focus on companies with strong fundamentals which are trading below their inherent value.

The second Inter-Varsity Stock Research Challenge, which seeks to promote the study of Value Investing among full-time undergraduates from Singapore and Malaysia and allow students to advance their analytical skills and earn exposure and recognition in the community of value investors, will also be held on the 2nd day of VIS. The winning team of the challenge will also earn prize money of S$4,000 and a shield plaque engraved with their institution’s name.
