Ho Khinwai is one of the youngest local authors to put his pen down on the subject of getting good grades in school. He has authored his first book at age 20 while serving his National Service.
Once an average student in his Secondary School, Khinwai uses the strategies that he shares today to propel himself to the top 1% in Nanyang Polytechnic’s (NYP) Business School and topped his cohort for his course, the Diploma in Banking & Finance. He has since received an undergraduate scholarship from the National University of Singapore. He was also placed on the Directors’ List every consecutive semester for his outstanding academic achievements.
Khinwai is not only a published author and writer, he is a well-known young value investor and online marketer within his community.
With a desire to find out what makes ordinary people extraordinary, Khinwai had personally trained under many distinguished mentors including Adam Khoo, Executive Chairman of Adam Khoo Learning Technologies Group (AKLTG), Mary Buffett, former daughter-in-law to billionaire Warren Buffett, JT Foxx, the World’s #1 Wealth Coach and serial entrepreneur, Peng Joon, Asia’s leading internet marketer, and many more. He has also personally interviewed many success icons such as Boyce Avenue, Wong Fu Productions and Ryan Higa (Nigahiga).
His mental models, attitudes and beliefs, and outlook on life has been shaped by many of these mentors - but none so great as his two most favorite and humble teachers - Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger.
Pre-Buffett/Munger, Khinwai learned various trading techniques and was so good at them that he and his team placed in the Top 10 internationally for the 2014 CME Group Trading Preliminaries, beating teams from NTU and SMU. They were also one of the top Singapore teams to enter the Finals.
However that changed in the Finals. One of his teammates had lost over 50% of their portfolio in under a minute wrongly trading against a commodity investment. It was at this moment that Khinwai realized that there must be a more prudent and safer way to invest in the markets.
Khinwai began his (proper) investing journey after being gifted a book "The Tao of Warren Buffett". It was here that he began his foray into long-term value investing, and started having an admiration for Buffett and his thought processes.
Since that realization, Khinwai has spent the last 5 years honing his skills in looking at investments the Buffett-way. Khinwai has personally profited (and continues to profit) from his stock picks, and shares his knowledge extensively to others.
He conducts various investment workshops and talks as President of his investment club at Tembusu College in NUS, and guest writes on College and external publications. His unique investment framework has been acknowledged by peers in the investment research industry - having been awarded 2nd place for the 8I Value Investing Summit Stock Research Competition (Feb 2017), 2nd place in the GC3 M&A Competition, 3rd place in the Ernst & Young (EY) UW Business Case Competition, and having emerged as the top team for BigFatPurse's Investment Challenge with a 3-bagger portfolio growth.
