#1 BiG Book of Wealth Creation Strategies and Gurus

Print Friendly, PDF & Email



(listed below) give direct advice, often on a combination of investments.

They’re people who give, or have given, information and advice on wealth creation (not financial planners – these are in our Directory). They usually specialise in a particular method or strategy.

They could focus mainly on shares or business – so may be in those BiG Books if not here.

Comparing the Lives of 5 of the Greatest Investors of All Time Elite Wealth – looks at Warren Buffett, John Templeton, Peter Lynch, Benjamin Graham and John Bogle.

The ‘About’ column simply quotes their marketing blurb – hence the “…” (so we don’t misrepresent or misquote their claims).

If we’ve  reviewed them (under our Traffic Light System) we rate them: red, yellow, green. If we receive any information and feedback on them (which includes any suggested ratings by you), they may be re rated to a different colour.  If we find  negative information or feedback, they may go back in colour. We invite you to send your feedback, or how you would rate them.

(You can find people who provide ancillary services, finance, or financial products – such as accountants and financial planners (may also be in Lists 1 and 2) in our BiG Directory which is updated as we get more information, feedback and referrals from BiG subscribers.)
