What Others Say About “REITs to Riches” course

“One of the best REITs courses I've attended. Wien is a passionate trainer, covering the content in detail and taking time to explain complex concepts clearly to us. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a comprehensive understanding of REITS investing.”

Sebastian Teo

“This course conducted by Wien is excellent. He teaches you how to identify high quality REITs based on leading indicators of performance (unlike other programs that I have attended where evaluation is based on lagging indicators that proved disastrous for my portfolio during the COVID19 crash). Equally important, he teaches us when to buy REITs. He is clearly the best REIT trainer/teacher in Singapore. I wished I learnt from him years ago.

Wien has made learning much easier for non-finance trained individuals like me. He is patient, listens and explains concepts in such a way that it is easy to understand.”

Philip Ho

“Ging Wien is extremely knowledgeable in the subject matter and is very clear in his explanations about choosing the right REITs. He is very engaging and managed to illustrate his points through many real-life examples. I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in expanding their portfolio in REITs to attend this 2-day course.”
