We believe education is key to successfully enable a sustainable regional investor ecosystem.

THE CHALLENGE

An education gap whereby investors have confidence in their ability to pick winners but not in their ability to execute investments.

THE SOLUTION

A VSQ curriculum that provides relevant, high quality and interactive investor education modules to regional investors.

THE GOAL

A knowledgeable community where individuals are provided with the tools to make informed investment decisions.

We work closely with regional institutions in multiple different ways.
