What International Teachers And Administrators Need To Know About Investing



Robert Landau knows a thing or two about teaching.

He has worked overseas for four decades. 

He has spent the past 25 years working as a school superintendent in Switzerland, Indonesia, the Czech Republic, China, Cambodia, and Singapore.

But there’s one thing that bugs him.  A lot. 

“Many schools allow investment ‘salesmen’ through their doors. But they rarely research the advisors, their firms or the products they sell.”

    Tell me about it!! As a teacher moving towards retirement, I thought the International circuit would help me build up at least an adequate pension pot. (I was late to teaching) I have moved my UK pension to Gibraltar via one of these guys and over the last 2 years it has made absolutely nothing! I recently found out that some staff have lost a lot of money through other investments with the same person. I know many of my colleagues are in a similar or worse situation. than me. We sorely need a list of reputable advisors. Thank you Andrew for the list you have on your web page. We are in Taiwan- any advice ?
