The presentation is part of Brown’s free online university,, which features teachings and courses on Standard Online Share Trading, including Trade to Trade Well (psychology of trading) and Trading Index Futures (a hands-on course) and ad-hoc courses and talks on various money/trading/investing related subjects.

During the presentation, Brown advised students about principles they could use to become successful traders and how the education they were getting would help them succeed in their careers.

‘If you want to be a trader you have to learn how to create a portfolio and how to create wealth. You can only do this by learning the principles of trading which is what you are doing now. You have to know the stock market and be money-wise about your investments.’

Brown’s presentation - a good balance of theory and real-life experiences - led to students, who are mostly in their third and fourth year of studies, asking questions related to what they have learned in lectures.

Honours students Mr Kreegan Govindsamy and Ms Anashya Singh said Brown’s presentation educated them on new perspectives about the financial sector.

‘Mr Brown has clearly established his own unique identity within his vocation as well as a healthy balance in his life; both of which I would like to adopt in pursuing a career in the financial sector,’ said Govindsamy.

‘The presentation enhanced my knowledge on the benefits of investing and outlined my visions, dreams and passions in making my career in the financial services sector successful,’ said Singh.

Finance Society member, Mr Brian Masondo, said holding such seminars was a way for the Society to help students plan for the future by making them aware of available career opportunities.
