Session 1

The Resilient Investor

May 10

What does it take to achieve enduring success as an investor? What winning strategies and principles can help you to build resilient wealth over the course of your investing lifetime, surviving the wildness that lies in wait? This class draws on powerful and practical lessons from some of the most famous investors William has interviewed, including Sir John Templeton (the greatest global stock picker of the 20th century), Jack Bogle (the founder of Vanguard, which manages over $6 trillion), Howard Marks (a multibillionaire who is the philosopher-king of finance), and Charlie Munger (Warren Buffett’s legendary partner for the last half century).

Session 2

How to Think Better in Markets and Life

May 24

The best investors are not only great money makers. They win by thinking more rationally, rigorously, and objectively than others. In this class, William will explain what we can learn from them about how to improve our thinking in markets and life, overcoming our biases and blind spots, avoiding catastrophe, and systematically eliminating what Warren Buffett’s partner Charlie Munger calls “standard stupidities.” Munger’s strategy of consciously avoiding stupidity turns out to be a surprisingly effective strategy that can dramatically improve our odds of success.

Session 3

How to Build a Truly Abundant Life

June 7

Money matters, but it’s not the essential ingredient of an abundant life. In this class, William will explore what he’s learned from financial legends like Ed Thorp (the greatest game player in investment history) and Irving Kahn (whom he interviewed at the age of 108) about how to maximize your odds of a happy and successful life. We’ll discuss the critical importance of building resilience; the high-performance habits that compound over time to create an overwhelming advantage; and why a Holocaust survivor and money manager named Arnold Van Den Berg is the most successful human being William has met in the investment world.
