Sean Seah first became interested in Finances and the Stock Market when he studied Economics in the University. When he started working, he continued his Financial Education by attending Stock Market courses available in the market, diving right into the Stock Market using the strategies he had learnt.
Within weeks, he lost 5 figure sums of money and this made him realize that he needed to master the fundamentals instead of trying to beat the market with “tricks”. He began to invest time and effort to study the fundamentals of Value Investing. And when he entered the market once more, he was better armed. His effort paid off and his investments began to compound and he recouped all his initial losses.
Based on sound investing principles, he formulated a set of strategies to reduce risk by capturing returns using market derivatives. For the past years, even in the worst times, Sean has been consistently making streams of income from the stock market on a yearly as well as monthly basis. To date, he has successfully trained thousands of participants to strategize their finances and how make their money work for them.

While still a student at the prestigious University of Tokyo, Takafumi Horie became obsessed with the potential of the internet when he took on a job with an internet services company.
Eventually, Mr Horie dropped out of university to set up his own internet company. Its web services business steadily and in 2000, just four years following its founding, Mr Horie managed to take the company public, reaping a fortune for himself and his close aides.
The listing helped to ensure that the fledgling company would weather the internet bust that wiped out many similar ventures. Mr Horie quickly gained a reputation for his aggressive M&A tactics, buying companies and turning them around to add to his growing stable of businesses.
In 2004 alone, his group – by then renamed Livedoor – acquired 16 companies.
No stranger to controversy, Horie challengied the conventional business practices in Japan, trying to buy a baseball team, and attempted to take over Nippon Broadcasting from Fuji Television Network.
He succeeded at becoming a headline grabbing household name. “Horiemon,” named after the beloved blue robot cat “Doraemon,” even ran for political office in 2005. Horie represented a new breed of businessman in Japan who was willing to take on the establishment.
The speed of his rise to fame and fortune was equally matched by his downfall. In 2006, he was found to have fabricated earnings for Livedoor and was hit with a record-breaking fine and forced to delist its shares. He was convicted of fraud and jailed in 2011. He lost weight behind bars, but not his knack for publicity, gathering over 1 million Twitter followers and 1,700 Facebook contacts.
Regardless of what you think of him personally, he still has a lot of influence and the fact can’t be denied – he is a visionary. Before he burst onto the business scene, only 2.2% of the adult population was engaged in new business activity. Now 4% of Japanese are involved.
Now Japan is waiting to see what he will do next. Itching to pick up where he left off, he wants to pursue commercial space rocket development and an e-mail magazine businesses. But first, the next big thing on his agenda is he’s coming to Singapore! He’ll be Live at the National Achievers Congress and we’re honored to have him as our opening speaker.
Join us at the event and you’ll have the opportunity to gain insights from the collective knowledge of all our featured speakers from a unique Asian perspective. Hear them share about their experiences, the lessons they’ve learnt, stretch your old ways of thinking and be inspired to live your wildest dreams.
