Day 1
Plan Your Future +
Save with Confidence
Crunch all your numbers and use our fantastic planning tool to set accurate goals for your future. Fix your mindset, control your debt, optimise your spending, understand insurance and find out how to think about money.
Day 2
Expat Investing:
The What & The How
Get practical tips and short-cuts for all the investing details that would otherwise trip you up: pick the right mix of funds, avoid horrific taxes, find the best broker, transfer your money cheaply, do a trade and more!
The most transformational and life-changing workshop I have ever attended. Steve's knowledge and comprehensive content, delivered with genuine consideration, makes this the best twelve hours of personal development I have ever spent.
I recommend this programme to everyone. Plus it's the perfect gift for a loved one who wants to do the right thing with their finances but doesn't know how.

The Expat Saving & Investment workshop is the roadmap needed in a world where access to clear and direct information on how to achieve Financial Independence is simply not available. The impact of this movement will benefit many families for generations to come. Kelly & Samir, UAE
Now you know what is possible,
make it happen for you
Too many people know about Financial Independence but don't do anything about it. You know what needs to be done. Let us help you turn the theory into reality.

Planning, Saving & Investing are all simple. But for expats the devil is in the details. Do fund managers want to help you directly? No. Do banks want you to transfer your money cheaply? No. There are thousands of funds out there and... what if you move back home? Where can you even keep your cash safely? What about inflation?

Either you will spend months researching and getting paralysed, or you will jump in and grind to a halt at the first hurdle.

We have helped thousands of expats and so we know where people get stuck. The Expat Saving & Investing Weekend Workshop is designed to help you blast through every single one. Learn what really works in a friendly and supportive environment.

By the end of the Workshop you will know what your finances actually look like now, what your goals are, exactly how long it will take you to reach Financial Independence*, how you are going to get there, what to invest in and how to buy the funds you need! You will be confident and in control of your financial destiny for the first time. There's no better feeling.

*If it's 70 years then you know to make some changes to your lifestyle! And if it's -2 years then congratulations, you can retire right now!

What to Expect

How this workshop could make you an extra $500k!

Let's say you invest $2000 per month for 25 years. In a long-term savings plan or bank savings account, let's assume 3% growth to be very generous: you will have turned your $600k into $894k. After the workshop, we aim to invest at 7% and keep fees down to 1%: you'll have $1.4 million - that's an extra 500k for a great retirement! And that's a 1000x return on your workshop cost :)

Hear from real UAE expats
making real progress

Because of your workshop and how you have taught me, I have managed to invest $100,000 since April 2020! I am so happy and I can't believe it.
Honestly, you have changed my life (my mum is so thankful to you too).

Hazel, UK expat
Probably the most important workshop of my life.  I look forward to investing as soon as possible using what I've learnt.

Julian, South African expat
One of the best things I've ever done.
The workshop is awesome!

2021 - now is the time to get on top of your finances!

2021 has been rough on everybody. You may be waiting to sort out your finances until you have a (better) job, can leave the house again without catching the plague, have time to go through your expenses etc. Don't wait. It's important to get a grip on your current situation so things don't get worse and it's important to plan for your future, ready for when things get better.

I honestly do not know when we will run this workshop live and in person again so don't miss it. We'll give you everything you need to start saving and investing properly for your future.
