About Colin Nicholson:

Colin Nicholson has been investing his own money in Australian shares for over 45 years. He is one of the very few teachers of investing who has published his investment return each year. Colin has taught both technical analysis and fundamental analysis for FINSIA, and wrote the subject notes for the two technical analysis subjects offered by Kaplan. Colin has retired from accepting speaking engagements.

His seminal book 'Building Wealth in the Stock Market' provides a complete model for investing successfully and safely in bull and bear markets. As an experienced investor and teacher, he shares with readers his own investment plan – one that has been honed over 40 years and has seen Colin consistently beat the market and his target rate of return.

Everything in his investing method is fully disclosed simply and with a minimum of market jargon. The central idea is how to manage risk in order to grow capital and secure a stream of dividends. The various risks to be managed are explained, along with strategies for managing them. Colin’s book is essentially a trading / investing course and we will use this book as a study guide over the next 5-6 meetings to gain a working knowledge of Colin’s methods.

Colin and the ATAA: He has been a highly rated speaker at many AIA and ATAA national conferences and has written five books on investing and written for Shares magazine, Smart Investor magazine, The Australian Financial Review, BRW. Colin is an honorary life member and past national president of the ATAA
