Intelligent Investor Mission Statement

Our mission is to get Kiwis reading books that will help them achieve financial success so they can live the life they want.

We have given away hundreds of books through our monthly Book Giveaways and want to play a part in improving financial literacy in New Zealand.

We will be posting regular reviews of books and products which will assist you in selecting the best information for the stage you are at in your investment journey.

We would love investors to share their success stories with us where a book they have read has inspired them to take actions that have led to financial freedom. You can post to our Facebook page.

The bookstore covers an indepth range of investment books for the property investor through to the share market investor.

If you can't find something you would like, contact us and we'll see what we can do. Our email is books@intelligentinvestor.co.nz or phone tollfree on 0800 345675.

For a great range of fiction books, we can recommend that you visit:  Prices Bookshop.

Prices is based in Taupo and handles fulfilment of orders. It is owned and operated by well known NZ economist Anthony Byett and his wife. Customers purchasing through intelligentinvestor.co.nz may be tickled to think their books are being packaged and dispatched by someone with such a good financial pedigree.
