On March 19, Andrew Stotz, CFA, an award-winning financial analyst with more than two decades of experience in Asia, held a live event at Ugnayang La Salle, De La Salle University – DasmariƱas based on his upcoming book, You Won’t Get Rich in the Stock Market… Until You Change the Way You Think about It. 

Roughly 1,700 students were in attendance at this seminar, where Stotz taught them about the 12 investment principles from his new book and showed each of them how to secure their own financial future. He also made sure that, by the end of the seminar, each student had made his or her own personal financial plan. This way, each student would have a roadmap to follow to reach financial independence. “It’s very gratifying to see that many people writing out their first financial plan. I feel like I’m making a difference, helping these students,” said Andrew.

In order to engage the students in the seminar, he asked each student to stand and flip a coin over and over, until only those who had flipped heads or tails ten times in a row were left standing. This was his way of illustrating that repeated stock market success can just be based on chance, and you can’t predict who will flip heads ten times in a row, any more than you can practice coin flipping to increase your chances. One student at the event said, “Mr. Stotz not only has a way with stocks but also has a way on reaching out to people.”

Another highlight of the seminar was when Andrew walked into the audience and announced that one lucky student from the crowd would win an all expenses paid trip to Bangkok, Thailand, to spend 48 hours with Stotz himself. “The winner will get to see what I do, up close and personal, and will have the opportunity to learn about each of my businesses,” said Andrew.

The seminar was organized by The Society Events and hosted by De La Salle University – DasmariƱas. Media partners include ABS-CBN News Channel, InterAksyon, and Wazzup Pilipinas.
