How do we live the best life possible? We’re often pursuing happiness, so this question is worth asking. We think that money doesn’t buy happiness, but studies show that’s only half-true.

In this session, Andrew Hallam, former Singapore American School teacher and author of Millionaire Teacher and Millionaire Expat, will show you the science behind happy spending:

  • How money can, in fact, make you happy
  • The art of spending money
  • How investing in life experiences can be beneficial in the long run
  • How to get the most enjoyment from those ‘bought’ moments
  • How to move away from a materialistic mindset

About the Speaker:

Andrew Hallam is one of the world’s best-known investment speakers.  He has been investing in the stock market for 30 years, having built a million-dollar portfolio on a schoolteacher's salary when he was in his late 30s. 

He uses humor, an engaging speaking style, and academic evidence to show how people can turn regular, consistent savings into high, long-term profits.  He’s the bestselling author of Millionaire Teacher (John Wiley & Sons 2011, 2017) and Millionaire Expat (John Wiley & Sons 2018).

As a financial journalist, Andrew has written for numerous international publications, including investment columns for The Globe and Mail, Canada’s national newspaper, Canadian Business magazine, MoneySense magazine, Internaxx and AssetBuilder,  a US based financial services firm.  He has been quoted by Forbes and The Wall Street Journal and has been a guest on numerous podcasts, radio shows and television networks, including CNBC.

Andrew is passionate about teaching financial wellness and has been asked to speak at international schools, international businesses, embassies, banks and Chambers of Commerce in North America, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Europe, Africa and Mexico.

Andrew teaches financial literacy but is NOT a financial advisor – far from it; he is a former international school teacher who will educate you so that you can cut through the minefield of financial advice from salespeople. It can often be confusing, but that does not mean that you should be losing out.  Andrew is not here to influence you in a particular direction, but to help you make better and more informed choices.  Andrew will offer academically peer-reviewed, evidence-based investment knowledge.

Andrew and his wife are prolific, adventure travelers.  They enjoy cycling around Europe and Asia on their tandem.  Most recently, they’ve been exploring Central and South America in a camper van.  “Intelligent investing allows people to buy the only non-renewable resource they’ll ever have,” he says.  “That resource is time.  On their deathbeds, most people don’t wish they had spent more time at work.”
