Learn from over twenty lifetimes of investing wisdom...
Join 21 expert investors as they hold nothing back and prepare you (and your portfolio) for 2018
Online Event | January 22-25, 2018
Warren Buffett Says that all you need to succeed as an investor is a sound framework for making decisions and the ability to stick to your plan. This summit will help lay the foundation for both.
How would you like to sit down with Bret Jensen, Brad Thomas, Mark Hibben, and other top Seeking Alpha contributors to ask them any question about investing?

I've done just that with twenty-one of the best that Seeking Alpha has to offer. We spend time going deep discussing biggest mistakes, lessons learned, top advice for DIY investors, what they'd do different if starting over today, why and how they invest the way they do, and why they think so many DIY investors struggle and how best to overcome.

We also reflect back on big wins and mistakes from 2017 and look forward to starting 2018 strong with both broad market outlook as well as highest conviction, specific, individual investments.

If taken seriously, I believe this could be a seminal moment that changes the course of your investing forever, for the better. All the elements are here to help you begin to lay the foundation for your sound framework and to empower you to stay the course.

In addition, I'm proud to have Seeking Alpha as an official partner in this year's summit. With their help, this is without a doubt the best summit to date.

I can't wait to see you on the inside.

What previous summit attendees have to say...
Hey Brian … First thing …. Great package you put together…. Thank you, I enjoyed and will continue to pick my way through the interviews over the next several months - Richard J.
Just listening to some of the presentations from the DIY investor summit and wanted to shoot you a note about how much I'm enjoying it. It's really a great thing you have put together. Great content to learn and improve my investing outlook. - Brett
Many thanks for pulling all of this information together and conducting the interviews. Without exception each offered the opportunity to further crystalize my own thinking and better define my goals with respect to investing. Some of the suggestions repeated by many of the participants ie. assess risk, understand fundamentals, do your homework really brought me back to thinking through my goals and how pieces fit or not in my portfolio. Again, many thanks. The product far exceeded my expectations and if you repeat in the future I will make sure to set aside sufficient time to become a full participant. - Joe T.
Hi Brian, Thanks for a great week! As a guy who turns 65 next week, this isn't my first rodeo, but you can learn a lot no matter how old you are if you keep an open mind. I learned a lot this week -- very good questions and asked in a good order. Your reiterations and amplifications of speakers answers were often very useful as well. - W.S.M.
Hello Brian, first of all, thank you for putting together the summit. I registered for this not expecting much, except some sales pitches. I was pleasantly surprised at valuable insights provided, even if I can not agree or in a position to implement some of these ideas. - Mal R.
Thank you so much for allowing us to listen to the recordings of your interviews during the past week! It was really useful and for sure will make me a better investor long term. - Renan U.
Hi Brian, We have never met, talked or exchanged messages. I had never heard of the DIY Investing Summit before I saw it mentioned in one of your messages on Seeking Alpha. I was a bit leery of signing up for it, but you seemed like an honest enough person that I figured it was worth taking a chance on. It turned out much better than I expected. I think you did a very good job interviewing the speakers and getting information out of them. You also had a very good set of questions to work with and got deeper when appropriate. I will be telling other people about the DIY Investing Summit as I presume this an ongoing event. - Tom T.
My heartfelt thanks to Brian Bain and the many generous contributors to the DIY Investing Summit 2017. As a young investor with no professional training, I found the DIY Investing Summit to be a truly spectacular resource. - W.
I loved your DIY conference! Greg T.
I’ve worked with Seeking Alpha and DIY Investing Summit speakers to get you some powerful bonuses that would normally go for more than the entire cost of the All-Access Pass, but they’re yours for free when you join (All-Access Pass only):
Unlimited Access to Summit Sessions ($2000): No travel and no time constraints. Access summit sessions at your convenience. Summit sessions will be available with lifetime access and can be enjoyed on the device of your choice. This is works out to ~$4.62 per interview when you upgrade, not factoring in other bonuses. Would you not spend $4.62 to sit and learn with one of these investors for an hour?
Download Ability to All Summit Sessions ($297): Download session MP3s and slide PDFs so you can enjoy content on the go via your smartphone. Don't worry about spending time at work or with family enjoying summit content. Take it with you to enjoy at your convenience. This is works out to ~$10.75 per interview download when you upgrade, not factoring in other bonuses. 
Executive Summary Sheets For All Sessions ($297): Enjoy my detailed notes from every summit session. This is better than a transcript. Each summary sheet is created and organized to help you quickly learn session highlights and know which session you'd like to listen to next.
But remember, the main draw of the All-Access Pass is LIFETIME access to the 2018 DIY Summit Content.
Because once the summit comes to an end, these investors are virtually inaccessible on this level. People have paid $1,000s and $1,000s to access just one of them.

Since they’re my friends and love helping investors like yourself, we’re able to make the All-Access Pass a no-brainer. For a limited time, I’m opening the doors for a fraction of the normal price other people will pay. 

The normal price will never be this low again, though – we’re offering this introductory price just for the first round of attendees.
Here’s Why You Should Attend This Online Conference:
#1 – Learn Directly From People Who’ve Done It (and reduce your learning curve)
Why waste time experimenting when you can learn directly from people who’ve done what you want to do…straight from the horse’s mouth.

The speakers I’ve hand selected will empower you by teaching you what really works…so you can prepare for the second half of 2017, guard against big mistakes & succeed as a DIY Investor.
#2 – Deeply Discounted For A Limited Time (only if you sign up TODAY)
Most conferences cost thousands to attend. You have to pay for registration, airfare, hotels, meals, and more. Because I know how powerful this event is going to be, I’m giving you a deeply discounted ticket…but only if you claim it right now.
#3 – Value Packed Video, Audio, and Written Interviews
I know that you have a preferred medium for consuming content. For that reason, I've made sure there is a media option that best fits you. Interviews will be available in audio, video (with presenter slides), and even written formats (with upgrade).

In addition, all audio and videos will be time-stamped. This means every question will be noted based on the time it is asked in the interview. Now you can jump straight to exactly what you want to know in every interview, at your convenience.
#4 – Save Yourself Time, Money, and Unnecessary Heartache
Being a DIY Investor is hard. It takes a lot of time, common mistakes can become very costly (quickly), and finding the right path to success can be very elusive. Wouldn't you like to learn the top tips on all these things from the best that Seeking Alpha has to offer?
What Makes This Event Different?
No Travel Required
There’s no flight or hotel room to book…saving you thousands of dollars, travel, and time away from your family.
Flexible schedule
The presentations will be available online at your own convenience. During the "live" portion of the event (available for a limited time in late January 2018), each interview will be available for a limited time, and if you upgrade you’ll get access to all the interviews and bonus material forever plus downloads for enjoying on the go.
Very special group of speakers
This won’t be the same speakers you see everywhere, primarily interested in pitching their products, with the same ‘one-size-fits-all’ general talk. I picked speakers with proven track records, who have a genuine desire to help, and who I believe can offer high, actionable value.

Most of these speakers don’t normally do events like this, but have agreed to make an exception…meaning you’ll get to see a very unique & diverse group of speakers at an event that has the potential to change your life as an investor.

Does that sound too bold? This event has the potential to save $1000s (and more) by helping investors avoid big mistakes, save time and heartache from misguided investing activity, and help investors find investing success by charting a clear path forward.

That sounds like a major change to me.
Beginners, intermediate, and advanced investors are welcome
This is NOT an events where the speakers hold back on information so they can pitch their products or service at the end – far from it.

This is high quality training that will benefit and be of value to you…helping you prepare for the start of 2018, guard against big mistakes & succeed as a DIY Investor. I structured this event with the DIY investor (YOU) in mind and have arranged the content (ex: time stamps so you can jump to specific questions in the audio and video) so that you can learn what you want, when you want, no matter your skill level.

The speakers are careful to share detailed, specific, and actionable advice. All for a great price.

MOST COMMON QUESTIONS
Is this event a good fit for me?
If you find yourself in one of the following categories, this event is a good fit for you:

The Brand New DIY Investor: You want to get off to a great start, from the beginning. The summit content goes deep, but always keeps new investors in mind. Contributors are careful to explain all ideas without hiding behind industry jargon.

The Hustling DIY Investor: You’ve been investing for some time, but feel like you can't seem to "get ahead." You spend hours and hours in research and study only to get disappointing results. The summit will give you the info you need to build a plan so you can focus on high impact activity that can move you in the right direction.

The Seasoned DIY Investor: You've been investing for years and have a solid framework in place. The worst thing you can do is become complacent.

The Pro Investor: Like the seasoned DIY investor, you have years of experience and are a resource to others. As with any profession, staying at the top of your field requires a commitment to ongoing training like the summit offers. When else will you have the opportunity to enjoy insights from so many of your top peers?
