WHAT I LEARNT AS AN ANALYST – 2ND EDITION BY PETER LIM TZE CHENG
The knowledge that generally comes with years of experience.
I am not Warren Buffett. Neither am I Charlie Munger. Nor do I consider myself an investment guru.
“What I learnt as an Analyst” was written to share what I learned in my years as an analyst and a fund manager. This book is also not written to boast about my successes. It is a vital tool to equip readers with the right fishing rod and teach the techniques to fish – and not brag about the size of a fish I once caught.
Part I: Unit Trusts as an Investment is written for individuals who want to invest in the stock market but do not have the interest or resources or time to conduct analysis on individual companies. For them, the most viable way is through investments in unit trusts. This part will guide investors on the ins and outs of investing in unit trusts.
Part II: Shares as an Investment is meant for individuals who intend to invest directly into the stock market. Rather than jumping in blindly, this part will equip individual investors with the basic understanding of financial statements, financial ratios, basic valuation methodologies, and other aspects of analysis to be taken into consideration when analysing a company.
For the unit trust investors, I hope this book will deepen your understanding on the basic mechanism of how unit trusts work.
For investors who intend to invest in the stock market, my wish is that this book will equip you with the basic methodologies and concepts to use to analyse companies before investing into them.
