Phil Town is an American investor, 3x New York Times bestselling author and founder of Rule #1 Investing, the largest value investing training company in the world.
In August 2007, on CNBC, Town predicted the 2008 market meltdown. In March 2009, he went back on CNBC and said he was getting back in the market and at his first 3 Day Workshop in June 2009, Town’s students created a 10-stock portfolio that ultimately produced a 1257% return over the next ten years. In 2019, Town told his students he was ‘going to cash’ in anticipation of “an economic storm that will briefly rain gold”, quoting Warren Buffett.
His students were prepared for this market crash. This 3 Day Virtual Workshop aims at a repeat of the 2009 workshop results for students. The focus of the workshop is how ordinary, novice investors can use the continuing market meltdown to become financially independent.
