Increased involvement and interest in listed companies and the economy, participation in wealth building, and a reduction of the concentrated ownership in the listed companies are important aspects that argue in favor of increased direct individual share investment. Individual shareholders contribute to building a sustainable market economy through prioritizing companies that both take a financial responsibility and a societal responsibility. Personal investment in equity is of benefit to the individual, companies and society.

Successful shareholders are a prerequisite for a broad individual investment in stocks. Knowledge is fundamental to investment success. Therefore, WFI and its member organizations promote investment education based on proven investment principles and methodology. Fundamental Analysis and WFI investing principles provide valuable guidelines for more successful investment in stocks.

As an international organization, WFI must try to understand and respond to a wide range of investor education needs. Consequently, our first course materials will be based on basic investor literacy and broad stock selection guidelines. Because some of our members have very advanced stock analysis methods and tools, we will also offer their valuable experiences. Both will be discussed at our annual meeting in Madrid in 2013.

WFI Educational Curriculum

*This program is intended to provide suggestions, ideas, and actual materials for WFI member organizations. Because many organizations already provide education programs, this should be considered as another resource rather than a competing or required program.
