Now You Can Discover The Secrets Of The World's Most Sophisticated Investors and Capitalise on the Biggest Wealth-Building Opportunity Since 2003!

From the desk of Graham RowanGraham Rowan Head & Shoulders
Founder of the Elite Investor Club

Dear Investor,

Apologies if you’ve already heard my own story but it bears repeating as a warning.

I did not merely appoint a firm of wealth managers to look after my life savings. That would have been mildly foolish. I went a step further and stupidly abdicated all responsibility to them.

I hardly challenged them as they put all my money in the NASDAQ because it was climbing so fast in 1999. Each day I would wake up £3,000 or £4,000 better off than when I went to bed. I began to fantasise that giving up work at 43 was a viable option.

Then came the millennium.

The start of a rapid decline from highs that the NASDAQ has yet to revisit a decade and a half later.

I timidly asked if we should diversify a bit. They told me not to be so stupid. Didn’t I recognise an overdue correction when I saw one? It wasn’t even my decision to end the relationship.

When I turned up for my annual review in June 2001 I nearly fainted when I realised they’d lost me £151,600 in eighteen months. The silence was broken by my wealth manager’s sidekick - ‘I’m afraid these losses take your net worth below the level at which we accept clients Mr Rowan, so we’re going to have to let you go…”

Fired By My Own Wealth Manager!

My life savings decimated. That’s the jolt it took for me to have a Eureka moment. Surely I couldn’t do any worse than the so-called professionals? That was the day I decided to take personal control. And the start of a fifteen year journey to the financial independence I now enjoy.

But don’t let me pull the wool over your eyes. It’s been a long, difficult, complicated journey. Probably more downs than ups if I’m honest. Involving lots of seminars, books, coaching. A three way split between financial investments, property investments and business investments.

Triumphs and failures in all three areas.

Like £110,000 invested in an online business that never took a penny in revenue.

Like catching the falling knife of bank shares in 2008 and losing 80% of my investment.

Like the buy-to-let property burned to the ground by a tenant smoking in bed.

I don’t know about you, but I agree with the cliché that you learn more from your mistakes than your successes.

The more times you go round the block, the better your judgement becomes. It’s got to the stage where I can assess a new investment opportunity in about an hour. Seventy per cent are rejected at that stage and the remainder go into more serious due diligence. About half of them make it through to final selection.

I invest my own money first then share them with people in the Elite Investor Club.

Why Did I Create The Elite Investor Club?

So that like-minded people would have something to belong to. A place where they could go, online or at live events, to learn and to share. It’s been a source of great pleasure for me to see friendships being formed between members who would never have met if not for the club.

They send me investments they’ve uncovered and ask me to give them the once-over. They forward my videos and opinion pieces to their friends. And they communicate with each other through the members’ area of the site.

The most important get together of the year is the Wealth Summit, which I've recently renamed the Elite Investor Summit.

And that’s what I’d like to invite you along to today.

It’s a financial event like no other. And it’s the one gathering you should make every effort to attend if you place any value on your financial future.

So Here's Why I'm Writing To You Today...

On Saturday 7th November I'm hosting my annual Elite Investor Summit in St Albans, UK.

And if you take your short and long term financial future seriously, you'll want to be there.

Here's why...

Because in the next twenty-four to thirty-six months, there is an unprecedented opportunity for smart investors to rapidly build their wealth and see their net worth explode.

At the Elite Investor Summit you'll be hearing from some of the world's leading investment experts...

Introducing your Elite Investor Summit expert panel...

Best-Selling Author and Financial Guru Harry Dent

harry dent For the past 30 years, Harry Dent has used the Science of Demographics to predict major economic and market shifts with uncanny accuracy… including the Tech Wreck of 2000…the 2000’s real estate bubble…and the market crash of 2008.

More recently, he called oil’s shocking crash, the dollar’s surprising rise and the mid-2014 gold rally followed by its dramatic collapse again toward the end of the year.

Harry will be making his only European appearance of the year at the Elite Investor Summit.

Unless you want a long haul flight to America or Asia, this is your only chance to hear him. Our VIP guests will have lunch with Harry in a special room as well as having their photo taken and getting a copy of his latest book, The Demographic Cliff.

James Ferguson and Tim Price from MoneyWeek

James Ferguson Smiling BWJames Ferguson qualified with an MA (Hons) in economics from Edinburgh University in 1985. For the last 21 years he has had a high-powered career in institutional stock broking, specialising in equities, working for Nomura, Robert Fleming, SBC Warburg, Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein and Mitsubishi Securities.

Having worked at Paribas Capital Markets and Merrill Lynch International, Tim Price helped to set up an award-winning investment management department at Ansbacher & Co. in 2001. He then moved to Union Bancaire Privée (UBP) in London where he was chief investment officer, global strategies, helping to manage over $1 billion in an absolute return programme for institutional clients.

Tim currently works as director of investment at PFP Wealth Management, a UK-based investment and financial advisory practice which advises on and manages £1.5 billion in client asset. He is also a regular Tim Price smiling over GR shoulder BWcontributor of articles to MoneyWeek and to our Roundtable discussions.

Tim runs an investment advisory service, The Price Report, especially for MoneyWeek readers – giving individual investors the chance to hear the very latest views, insights and specific tips from top-level City investors and professional managers.

Mark Dampier - Research Director of Hargreaves Lansdown

mark-dampierMark has 30 years' experience in financial services, beginning his career at a London brokerage in 1983.

Holds a BA Honours in Law, as well as the Investment Management Asset Allocation Certificate and Financial Planning Certificates 1, 2, and 3.

He is regularly featured in the national press, including a weekly column in The Independent, as well as providing frequent insights on BBC's MoneyBox, LBC and HLTV.

Regarded as one of the very best in the profession, Mark joined Hargreaves Lansdown and the board of Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management in 1998 and now leads their research team.

I’ll be interviewing Mark live on stage at the Elite Investor Summit. Access that his 600,000 clients would kill for. You might be able to grab him for a quick 1:1 in the lunch break.

Justin Urquhart Stewart

Justin_Urquhart_Stewart-close-upPerhaps our best known TV pundit on the world of investing, Justin Urquhart Stewart, will give the afternoon keynote address. He’ll open the kimono on why his funds seem to consistently out-perform the markets.

Launched 7IM with a group of like-minded people to bring a dose of 'radical, common sense' to the investment management world.

Justin co-founded a business that helps individuals and their families manage capital to meet their financial needs, and aspirations. He now looks after over £7 billion of their money, as well as his own personal investments.

His company have been around for a decade and gained a reputation for innovation, clarity and a straightforward approach – while delivering a strong investment performance consistent with what they’ve promised their clients.

Luke Lang, Co-Founder of Crowdcube

lukelangLuke Lang is co-founder of CrowdCube, the biggest and fastest growing equity crowdfunding platform in the UK.

Luke cut his marketing teeth working for a successful UK-based Internet Service Provider marketing technology and internet solutions for businesses. Luke also ran his own marketing consultancy that specialised in digital marketing, B2B marketing and marketing strategy.

He’ll talk about the unique opportunities in this space, and how Elite Investor Club has partnered with Crowdcube to enable ordinary folks to qualify as Sophisticated Investors so that they meet the new FCA rules and can once again access the full world of investment opportunities denied to most British citizens since October 2014

Andrew Craig - CEO of Plain English Finance and Author of Own the World

andrewcraigAndrew graduated in Economics and International Politics from the University of Birmingham in 1997. His first job took him to Washington DC where he worked for a US Congressman on Capitol Hill.

Since then Andrew has spent nearly fifteen years working in financial markets for various finance firms in London and New York. These have included UBS, Credit Agricole and two smaller boutique investment banks. Andrew currently works for the leading Swedish Investment Bank, SEB and is an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI).

Importantly, Andrew originally worked in an area called “Pan-European small and mid-caps”. This simply meant that he dealt with companies from all over Europe that were less than about £2-3 billion in size. He was able owntheworldto meet and travel with the top management teams of several hundred companies and was involved with the stock market flotation (IPO) of the likes of Burberry, Campari, easyJet, HMV, lastminute.com, Carluccio’s and the Carbon Trust. Today he enjoys the same access to Scandinavian companies, his current area of specialism.

Working in the more volatile area of “smaller” companies meant that Andrew witnessed some companies appreciate in value by dozens, even hundreds of per cent and saw others lose a huge percentage of their value, sometimes overnight. He saw first hand just how much money the very best investors were able to make. His reaction was to read widely about investment and start investing his own money. Thanks in great part to the returns afforded by those investments he has been able to spend around five of the last fifteen years outside of conventional employment working on passion projects and reading a great deal on finance, trading, economics and economic history.

Siam Kidd

siamkiddSiam is a popular keynote speaker, praised for his ability to explain complex areas of the financial system that even a 6 year could understand. Despite being filled with facts, his talks are humorous and will leave your guests mesmerised with a new found understanding of the world economy.

Despite not having a crystal ball, Siam has forecasted several major events such as the Apple stock crash of 2012, QE2 & 3 and various Gold and Silver price moves.

At the Elite Investor Summit, Siam will show us how we can make serious money trading the Foreign Exchange markets without having to spend all day staring at a computer screen.

Russell Napier

napier-306Russell Napier’s Solid Ground report has been providing investment advice to professional investors for almost two decades. Sometimes wrong, often right but always interesting, thought provoking and informative it has become a ‘must read’ for many investors.

Russell will arrive at the Elite Investor Summit just 24 hours after speaking in Marakesh at a conference of family offices who look after billionaires. Telling us what he sees coming down the pipe, exactly as he’s told it to them the day before.

      100% Money Back Guarantee

      I want to take all the risk away from you with a cast-iron 100% money back guarantee.

      If, by lunchtime on Saturday 7th November, you feel that you have not had value for money, just speak to me or a member of my team and we will refund your ticket price in full. No quibbles. No fuss. You can just quietly leave at that point.

      You won’t be surprised to learn that I’m not expecting too many to take me up on that.

      Never say never, because there are some professional complainers who may cynically exploit the offer and take huge value from the morning session before claiming a refund. I’m not going to lose any sleep over people like that. I certainly don’t want them in the Elite Investor Club. In fact I’d prefer not to have them polluting the event at all. But you can’t tell what’s in someone’s head when they make the booking.

      The guarantee is here for you to feel 100% comfortable that when you invest your valuable time and money in attending this event, it will not be wasted.

      Why You Absolutely MUST Attend:

      Let’s be honest. There are 101 reasons not to come. You need to take the kids to their football/swimming/rugby/dancing/music lessons. Maybe your spouse could do that for just this one day? Better still, bring them all with you!

      We deliberately chose Sopwell House because it has a spa and pool for the grown-ups. And, just down the road, the Harry Potter film studios will keep the kids occupied for hours.

      At the end of a hard day of listening you and your spouse can join us for a Cocktail Evening.

      Who knows who you might meet? Don’t imagine that everyone in the room will be an investment geek spouting jargon about M3 money supply and U.S. Non-Farm Payroll data.

      The vast majority are normal human beings like you and me. They simply want to be better informed. Many take the view that if they come away with one pearl of wisdom it’s been a worthwhile use of a day.

      It’s easy to feel disconnected when you listen to a succession of world-renowned experts who are very comfortable talking about their area of expertise. “What can he know about my life? All the things I’m juggling month to month from school fees to holidays to property repairs. I just don’t have time to become an expert”.

      I couldn’t agree more.

      That’s why each speaker is under strict orders to avoid jargon and give specific, easy-to-understand strategies that people can go away and implement on Monday morning.

      The fact that you’re this page means you’re already involved with Elite Investor Club on some level. That alone puts you in the top 5% of the UK population. The information and the investment strategies you’ll learn on Saturday 7th November will put you in the top 1%.

      You’ll know what the billionaires know.

      You’ll understand what’s really been happening in the world since 2008. And, more importantly, what the next decade is likely to hold. And you’ll have the strategies to ensure that you are on the winning side as those events play out in the years ahead.

      What a gift to yourself and those you care for.

      Even with clearly defined approaches to investing, you might be worried that it’s all too much work. Fear not.

      There will be carefully chosen partners at the Elite Investor Summit who can help you get things done. Or they can do it for you. Having these experts in your personal rolodex is as good as money in the bank. You decide how much of the implementation you want to do yourself and leave the rest to your hand-picked team.

      But let me make one thing clear...

      This Event Is NOT a 'Sell-a-thon'!

      You know what I mean. Maybe you've even attended one of those events before.

      Each speaker gives five minutes of content then spends the next forty on an elaborate sales pitch leading to the point where he utters the dreaded words ‘please hand out the order forms now’.

      Take my word for it. There will be no selling from the stage at The Elite Investor Summit.

      There will be a small number of exhibitors outside the main presentation room, and I’d encourage you to see what they have to offer. But I hope you know me well enough by now to appreciate that I don’t believe in the 'hard sell' when it comes to investments.

      With the calibre of speakers I’ve managed to assemble, I can put my hand on my heart and say there’s something for everyone.

      Even if you’ve been to every investment seminar in Europe for the last decade, there’ll be new stuff you haven’t heard before.

      We’ve got the big picture macro experts like Harry Dent, James Ferguson and Russell Napier.

      We’ve got the ‘what do I invest in tomorrow’ experts like Tim Price, Mark Dampier, Andrew Craig and Justin Urquhart Stewart.

      And we’ve got the niche experts like Luke Lang, Siam Kidd and myself.

      Easy Access For All Levels Of Investor

      I’ve kept the fee for attending the Elite Investor Summit as accessible as possible so that cost will not be a barrier.

      As you probably know, my personal mission revolves around financial education and getting people to take ownership of their financial future.

      So I really don’t care if you’re a billionaire or if you’re living in a caravan. All that matters is you want to invest a day of your time and a small amount of your hard-earned cash in joining the 1% ‘in the know’.

      You may be at the start of your journey and not yet ready to make a significant investment. That’s fine. I wish I’d had access to this information twenty years ago when I was getting going.

      Or maybe you’re desperate to come but you’re struggling to get permission from ‘the management’.

      You’ll notice I carefully avoided any gender specifics in that sentence.

      No, I haven’t been overcome by a sudden dose of political correctness. I just know for a fact that we have almost as many women as men in the Elite Investor Club and it may be their husbands who don’t see the sense in spending the money.

      Leave them on the couch watching the footy I say.

      In my experience the best way of dealing with this is to bring them along.

      We deliberately chose a Saturday so that work commitments couldn’t get in the way. Have a look at the feedback from last year’s Summit and see what those people gained from a day doing something very different to a normal Saturday.

      And we chose a venue in the South East but north of London to make it easier for our many members in the Midlands and North West to get to.

      I know it’s a bit of a trek from Birmingham or Manchester but the traffic is always quiet on a Saturday and the motorway connections are very good.

      Better still, why not take advantage of our discounted rates and spend Friday or Saturday night at Sopwell House. Make a weekend of it. Then you can really enjoy the cocktail evening…

      Urgent Vs. Important

      One of the most important distinctions I’ve learned in life is to separate what’s urgent from what’s important. It’s amazing how the ‘urgent’ stuff can dominate your thinking on a day to day basis. And yet, if you completely ignore it, much of it seems to disappear like a knob of butter in a frying pan.

      The challenge is to avoid focusing entirely on the urgent and make room for the important. It’s not hype. There really is no other gathering of investment brains in the country this year quite like Elite Investor Summit 2015.

      I guarantee you will learn new ideas at the event that will make a six or seven figure difference to your net worth over time. If you’re in the room. If you listen and take notes. And if you implement what you hear.

      Three big ‘ifs’ in one paragraph. I’m pushing my luck, aren’t I!

      I have no control over what people do with the world class information that will be shared with them on 7th November.

      But, based on our relationship to date, I’m hoping I can have a small amount of influence over whether you are in the room.

      And I don’t want your ‘significant other’ (political correctness alert) to feel left out either.

      If they’d like to join you for lunch and cocktails but not attend the seminar sessions, there’s a special Cocktail Party Pass available at just £59. So they can enjoy some of the event while luxuriating in the spa, playing a round of golf, visiting the Harry Potter studios or taking in a little retail therapy in the emporia of St Albans.

      So we’ve kept everybody happy and freed you up to concentrate on absorbing the best investment information you’ll hear this year.

      I’m not sure there’s much else I can do or say to get you to take action. You can have it all sorted in a couple of minutes, any time of day or night. But the best time to do it is right now, while it’s fresh in your mind.

      And access to my new book is instantaneous. As soon as you complete your reservation, you’ll be taken to the download page. And the sooner you reserve, the more likely you are to nab one of the 75 Hary Dent audio CDs we have waiting for you…

      ONLY 250 TICKETS AVAILABLE!

      This event will sell out.

      It's Harry Dent's only European appearance this year, and so the 250 tickets will be in high demand.

      So it might be worth getting in ahead of the rush. Knowing that the important stuff is taken care of. Then you can start preparing for the big day by reading my new book and listening to your Harry Dent CD.

      In just a couple of mouse clicks and you’ll be on your way to the best investment seminar in the UK this year. And on your way to specific strategies that will make a massive difference to how well you can create and protect wealth for you and your loved ones for the rest of your life.

      I look forward to shaking hands with you at Sopwell House on Saturday 7th November. It’s going to be a memorable day for everyone in the room.

      Join us and experience it for yourself.

      Warm regards
