Are you into strategic investing and practical fundamental analysis?

If yes, then this seminar might be for you. My friend Tyrone of sent me details of this seminar of his officemate Ray Alejandrino and thought of sharing it here for those who might be interested.

One thing I like about this seminar is it includes investing in a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) as one investment option in the topics to be discussed as seen in the seminar outline below. I just wish it will be discussed thoroughly.

Secondly, readers of can avail of the special discounted seminar fee of only Php3,500.00 per person (Regular seminar fee is Php5,000).

  1. Hi Jay!

    This would be a good training to attend. I’m interested on how Ray would present the options on investing and technical trading. Sayang, di ako pwede as I will attend a 3-day boot camp.

        Do you remember you said you will be the one to supply one kind of “hot” material for this particular guy’s boot camp when we attended his second seminar at SMX? That boot camp! Hehe…

        Nahulaan mo ba bro?

        • Actually, me and my wife will attend. But she doesn’t know and I’d like to surprise her. We’ll be celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary this October and I thought it would be a wonderful time to bond through this boot camp.:)
