Meet Your Instructor

CEO, A. Stotz Investment Research

Andrew Stotz, Ph.D., CFA

In 1992 I left a promising management career at Pepsi-Cola in California to teach finance in Thailand, and I have not stopped teaching since. In 1993, I found my life calling as a financial analyst. Over my 20-year career at brokerages and investment banks, my proudest moment was when my clients voted me #1 analyst in Thailand in the Asiamoney Brokers Polls and Institutional Investor magazine.

I now run my own company, A. Stotz Investment Research, where we provide research and research tools for institutions and high-net-worth investors; as well, we have a consulting arm that helps CEOs and management teams make their companies financially world-class.

The ValuationMasterClass.com comes from my near three decades of teaching and working in finance. I am also the host of the My Worst Investment Ever podcast, author of four books, and creator of four online courses.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in finance, an MBA from California State University, and a Ph.D. in finance from the University of Science and Technology of China. I live in Bangkok with my 81-year-old mother, who will attest that I remain an analyst at heart!

What some members have said:

This is real

Sarlilpak Uasuwonkul

"I am reluctant to take most financial courses since so many of them are just a scam, but this is real and will help you to plan your finances better and avoid unnecessary losses in the stock market. Andrew is truly an expert and his advice is realistic, and can really be applied immediately."

This is a great, well-structured course

Chaiyakorn Yingsaeree

"I like that the lectures are broken down into a series of small, actionable concepts that enabled me to breeze through the info. The quizzes at the end were very helpful and definitely a nice touch."

I won't have to depend on anybody else

Sharmaine Franco

“Every young student like me should start doing things right by thinking of the future. And one way to do that is to invest as early as today so that when the time comes when I need the money for retirement, I won't have to depend on anybody else.”

Proven principles

The principles you’ll learn are the same principles Andrew used to guide his five nieces to start investing on their own at the age of 18, and also the same principles that have allowed his 81-year-old mother (and late father) to live financially independent in their retirement.

I'm in!
