Currency controls have been lifted in Iceland. Yet many retail investors have still not taken advantage of this to minimize the transactions costs associated with discount brokerage platforms and better diversify their investment portfolio risks so as to enhance their returns by investing in a much more liquid and deeper US equity market. 

This one day course introduces participants to the US equity market and provides hands-on experience using a trading portal. 

Objectives of the course:

  • Introduce attendees to US equity markets
  • Expose attendees to simple practical investing strategies in US equity markets
  • Provide attendees with a hands-on experience to understand investing strategies using a combination of spreadsheet and trading portal (that is used by Reykjavik University's Business school to teach a trading course)
  • Provide attendees with an overview of the names of firms that offer discount brokerage trading platforms that attendees can subscribe to so as to invest real-time in the US equity markets.

Who should attend:

Anyone who wishes to understand and explore an alternative investment platform offered by a discount broker and the opportunities offered by the US equity markets.

Financial advisers who wish to bring a new value proposition to their clientele based on this alternative platform and strategy.
