VIC has left its mark in more than 20 cities around the world with its flagship programme - “Value Investing Bootcamp”, including Taiwan, Thailand, Myanmar, India, Vietnam, Dubai and more.
VIC held its first collaborative event, Investopia launched in Kuala Lumpur back in April 2017. The one day event saw a full turnout of 1,350 participants with keen interest to hear from Value Investing titans of the world.
VIC’s team is well-trained to focus on educating the layman on principles and techniques of value investing, enabling them to become Knowledge Champions.
Back in 2009, Director of 8VIC Malaysia, Gary Yeow had only one mission in mind;
“to help people achieve a healthy life so they can spend more time with their loved ones”
Him and his then-business partner were owners of a company called Fusion Wealth which focuses on promoting alkaline water machine, in hopes of making Malaysia a healthier country, one family at a time.
A huge believer of mind, body and spiritual health, Gary then decided to join a Warrior Camp where he got into a row with Ken, over a misunderstanding.They however became fast friends after discovering each other’s mission in helping others and the two later agreed to forge a partnership, establishing what would henceforth be known as 8VIC Malaysia (formerly 8I Education Malaysia)
The Value Investment Masterclass (known as MIP back then) made its Malaysian debut with more than 30 participants in May 2012. Led by Gary and a new director, Juanna Chua, the team continued to run 4 bootcamps in a year – all while operating on a lean manpower of only 3 people.
Subsequently, 8VIC Malaysia’s first TV show in Mandarin, Money Money Home (全家私房钱) was successfully broadcasted on Astro in February 2017. Featuring guests like Mary Buffett, the show went on to garner tens of thousands of viewers all over the country and an influx of program participants.
What used to be 4 bootcamps in a year became 24 (2 bootcamps in one month) and what used to be a 3-man team had since expanded to 16. Holding on to Gary’s initial mission of spreading financial literacy to his fellow Malaysians, 8VIC Malaysia now the leading value investing education provider in the country.
Having transformed more than 12,000 lives so far, 8VIC aims to be the world’s number 1 value investing education provider.
