SpringBoard TM Insights: Value Investing Tips

Dear friends,

We are pleased to inform you that our recent revamp of the SpringBoard TM Mentorship platform has achieved significant progress and we have completed first stage of our transformation.

We have brought in new mentors and developed more tracks along a more comprehensive programme, which include job referrals at the end leading to a job in this industry.

We now have at least 5 mentors on board, and also some 5- 10 new generation apprentices on our platform. These numbers are expected to increase further as we further transform our operating model.

On 28 Feb 2013, we are pleased to welcome Mun Hong and Willie to share their insights on Value Investing (Warren Buffet style) from the Book “Margin of Safety”. They are outstanding finance professionals, once fresh Engineering graduates mentored by Yoman in 2011, and they are our exemplary ex-interns who continue to learn and network and give back to the SpringBoard TM platform.

The session will be moderated by Yoman and AKY, SpringBoard’s Gen 1 success story from 2009.
