Instructor

Andrew Stotz, Ph.D., CFA

CEO, A. Stotz Investment Research

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!

Testimonial

Based on real-life application"

"Andrew has an influential style. His teachings are based on the real-life application from his own business with an emphasis on 'What works best' for each business. Not a one-size-fits-all approach. We can always learn new approaches to business or improve beyond where we currently are no matter how good we think our business is. It is when we stop being open to new perspectives and ideas that we stop growing.”

Daniel Remon - Business Owner

Learn how to raise the bar for your company"

"It’s engaging yet challenging. He asks you to think and consider the ideas as they can be applied to yourself. His delivery is clear and concise. I would definitely recommend the learnings because it makes you think outside the box, take a look at management from all levels and learn how to raise the bar for your company as a whole.”

Lucy Thorpe - Senior Executive

Different approach to management"

"Andrew helped me to see a different approach to business and management. His discussion of Dr. Deming’s 14 Points is great for anyone in business, entrepreneurs, managers, or anyone open to outside-the-box thinking.”

Jerry Gonzales - Senior Vice-President
