New Member Acceptance Day

Dear committed investor,

Let me start by asking you a difficult — but very important — question…

If the market were to suddenly fall 10 to 20% over the next few months — just like it did back in 2015 — how would your portfolio fare?

What about if we saw an all-out crash of 20% – 30% or more — like we did in 1987… 2002/2003… and 2008/2009?

More importantly, how would you react?

Would you sell all your stocks to avoid further losses? Or maybe sell some, but hold on to others? (And how would you decide which ones to dump and which ones to keep?)

Or would you perhaps follow in the footsteps of sage investors like Warren Buffett –who has always advised investors to “be greedy when others are fearful”?

Of course, many investors think they’d have the discipline to do just that…

But as I can tell you from my years of personal experience in this industry, when it comes time to wade out into a sea of nothing but red, few actually do…

And, unfortunately for them, that crisis of confidence often ends up costing them a fortune in lost profits!

Now here’s a question you probably have for me…

Why I am asking you all this in the first place?

Well, because according to the numbers, we’re a whole lot closer to a major market drop than you might realise…

In fact, at this point, it looks like we may be long overdue for some serious pain.

You see, according to some eye-opening research I recently came across from legendary Nobel-Prize-winning economist, Robert Shiller, on average…

— Markets pull back 10% about once every 11 months…

— They drop 20% about once every four years…

— And they nosedive 30% or more about once every decade.

Granted, this research is based on data that Shiller collected on the S&P 500…

But smart investors you and me both know how closely the U.S. and Australian markets are tied…

And we know that even a modest selloff in the U.S. markets could send shockwaves through those here in Australia — not to mention, around the world.

And guess what?

As I sit down to write this, it’s been 9 years, 6 months, and 24 days since the last time the S&P 500 dropped 30% or more.

(Do the maths and you’ll see that puts us only about 5 months short of Schiller’s dreaded decade mark.)

Perhaps even more worrisome is that it’s been 8 years, 4 months and 2 weeks since the last pullback of 20% or more in the U.S.…

Which means that statistically U.S. markets are almost
four and a half years overdue for a 20% plunge

What’s more, in a recent interview with Bloomberg Shiller was quoted saying that this market “is like the dot-com bubble again.”

Combine these troubling facts and figures with the bizarre reality that over the past year or so we’ve seen…

— The Australian share market climb steadily higher — despite the fact that the debt to savings ratio of the average Australian is at all time highs…

— Our housing prices continue to shoot through the roof as the Australian economy enters its 25th straight year without a recession…

— And Donald Trump being elected President of the United States after promising to “rip up” long-standing international trade agreements — among so many other things…

And you’ll start to get some sense of why — even though I’m no alarmist — I think it’s safe to say investors like you and me may be in for an incredibly bumpy ride over the coming months and years.

So… what should we do?

Should we sell some — or even all — of our stocks while they’re still up… take our profits… and sit on the sidelines for awhile?

Or maybe just hold tight… but going forward stash any money we have set aside for investing in “safer” vehicles like gold… term deposits… or even just plain cash?

Well, not so fast…

Because if there’s one thing that I think could be even more destructive to your wealth than suffering through an inevitable bear market…

It’s missing out on an epic bull market — or even just a handful of huge days for shares.

To see what I mean, just have a look at this incredible chart from JP Morgan Asset Management that I recently came across in Business Insider…

As you can clearly see, sitting out even just the market’s 10 best days could cost you nearly half your wealth.

Meanwhile, missing the market’s 20 best days would leave you with only a third of what you’d otherwise have!

And let’s face it… nobody has any idea when those days are going happen.

I don’t know about you, but given the financial hopes and dreams I have for myself and my family, I simply cannot afford to lose the majority of my wealth to inaction…

Which is exactly why my wife and I have personally committed $500,000 of my family’s own money to the unique, confidence-building investment solution you’re about to discover…

(With $250,000 of that commitment coming right in the midst of the last major downturn we saw in Aussie shares!).

It’s also why I asked to be the one to reach out to you
today with this FY18 “action plan” invitation…

Granted, after everything we just discussed, I don’t blame you if you’re feeling a little whipsawed… or even downright discouraged.

The fact of the matter is successful investing isn’t exactly easy — especially in highly uncertain markets like one we’re facing today.

And there’s a good reason why so many investors fail to consistently beat the market over time…

After all, it takes the kind of time… patience… discipline… and dedication that folks with jobs to go to and families to raise seldom have.

But imagine if there was a simple alternative…

Whereby — no matter what was happening in the market — you would always know:

✔ exactly which stocks to buy (and sell)…
✔when…
✔at what price…
✔ and how much of your portfolio to allocate to each stock, right down to the penny.

And, more importantly, you could sleep easy at night knowing that your portfolio was not only well positioned to weather any sudden or serious downturns…

But also designed in such a way that it could steadily grow your wealth over time through all kinds of markets — be it bear… bull… or whatever you want to call the one we’re facing today.

Then imagine, if on top of all of that, you could put this fortune-making solution to work for you — without having to pay a fortune in the process.

If that all sounds too good to be true, here’s something you should know…

On March 25, 2014 this “dream solution” for Aussie investors became a revolutionary new reality…

Because on that day we launched a one-of-a-kind, “make-money-in-any-market” portfolio-building service we called Motley Fool PRO…

And we proudly — and confidently — backed it with $1,000,000 of our company’s own money.

Our goal with Pro was simply to help hardworking investors like you systematically beat the market with below-market risk — and make positive real returns in up, down, and even roller-coaster markets.

And we believed we could do this in a time-saving and cost-effective way by
simply building a real-money portfolio in full view of our members that followed traditional Foolish investment principles (like buying and holding great businesses over the long term)…

But one that also made use of some slightly more complex — and all-to-often overlooked — investment strategies, like…

— Largely avoiding traditional ASX blue chips — especially bank and mining shares…

— Seeking out Aussie-based and ASX-listed companies that had plenty of exposure to rapidly growing international markets…

— Protecting your downside by diversifying your portfolio across a wide range of sectors, specialties, and market-caps — and investing in companies with rock solid balance sheets and strong cash cushions…

— Scouring the market for rapidly growing — yet totally underfollowed — small- and micro-cap stocks — with a heavy focus towards technology shares…

All while remaining squarely focused on buying and holding great businesses with rock-solid balance sheets… strong free cash flow… and top-notch management teams with a long-term focus…

And, in many cases, the ability to consistently deliver shareholders pay cheque-like income in the form of a steady — and potentially growing — dividends.

But to be perfectly honest, we never dreamed that Pro would deliver our members such huge returns
in such a relatively small amount of time…

Of course, as you already know if you were among the thousands of Aussie investors who eagerly followed along with our just-completed “Pro FY18 Investor Summit”…

Since launching in March 2014 Motley Fool Pro has helped our members earn returns of over 90%…

Not to mention, outperform the ASX All Ords by some 70% over that time period!

To see what that kind of incredible performance looks like, simply have a look at this amazing chart we just put together:

[ Pro Animated Graph ]

Then again, given that our Pro service here in Australia was inspired by The Motley Fool’s original PRO service in the U.S., I guess we really shouldn’t be too surprised by its incredible success.

After all, despite being launched during one of the greatest market meltdowns in history, the performance of the original Motley Fool PRO portfolio in the U.S. has been nothing short of legendary.

In fact, even though the market fell a gut-wrenching 29.5% in the six months after PRO launched in the U.S., its members were never down by than 2.4% during that time!

Perhaps even more impressive is that, since inception, the stock portion of the PRO portfolio is up 387% — and outperforming its S&P 500 benchmark by an incredible 219%.

Given those kind of results, it’s no surprise that Pro members in the U.S. have routinely written in to say things like…
“Motley Fool PRO has fundamentally changed the way I invest.”
“I’ve generated steady flows of income as the market has gyrated up and down.”
“Best money I ever invested!”
Nor that well-known and highly-respected financial publications like Barron’s quickly began to take notice of PRO shortly after it launched (they even dedicated an entire column to PRO in article entitled, “Giving Your Portfolio More Options.”)

I’m sure you can also see why we were bound and determined to bring a similarly unique and powerful investment solution to Aussie investors like you…

And as the General Manager of Motley Fool Australia (as well as an actual Motley Fool Pro member who has committed $500,000 of my family’s own money to following this service trade-for-trade)…

I couldn’t be more excited — or proud — that we’ve been able to offer a service like Pro to Foolish investors like you for a little over three years now.

But because we knew from the start that Pro would be far more “hands on” than most other investment services we offer…

And because we knew it would be making use of thinly traded small- and even micro-cap stocks …

When we initially launched Pro, we agreed that going forward we’d only open it up to new members under extraordinary circumstances — and that we would strictly limit the number of new members we invited to join us when we did.

And, as we discussed earlier, we believe that today’s market climate certainly qualifies as extraordinary.

Which is why, for a very short while, we are re-opening the doors to Motley Fool Pro to a select few new members for the first — and only — time in 2017…

And why we’d love nothing more than to have a serious and committed investor like you join us in Pro today.

That way, among many other things you can…

— Instantly see every single stock that Pro’s Lead Advisor, Matt Joass, CFA, currently has our company’s own money invested in — and precisely how much he’s allocated to each one…

— Get the full rationale behind each one of these holdings — including all the need-to-know details on three stocks that he’s just topped up on in the past few weeks alone…

— Be among the first to know anytime Matt and his team decide to buy… sell… or trim a stock in the Pro portfolio — and go ahead and make the trade before they do, if you so choose…

— Take advantage of valuable members-only bonuses like our discussion forums and highly informative weekly updates…

— And, best of all, lock in a time-sensitive “early bird” discount of up to $6,998 when you do (more on this historic discount just ahead)!

But please be aware due to the heavily discounted nature of this “early bird” offer, as well as the membership constraints we mentioned a moment ago, we must keep the number of investors who will get to take advantage of it to a bare minimum.

In fact, we’ve determined we can accept no more than 575 new members into Pro through this “early bird” offer (which amounts to just roughly 0.2% of our greater Fool investment community here in Australia).

What’s more, we can only honour the terms of this offer through 11:59 p.m. tomorrow night at the absolute latest (or until we hit our 575 new member cap — whichever comes first).

And based on both the sheer numbers and the demand we’ve seen the handful of times we were able to open Pro in the past, we can only assume these spots will fill up extremely quickly.

Which is why if you are at all interested in putting Matt Joass and his Pro team to work for you, we’d urge you to claim your spot right away.

[Simply click here to discover how to lock-in your spot
— and save up to $6,998 when you do!]

But, of course, we’d never want you to make a hasty decision that you might later regret…

Which is why, we’ve decided to do something a little bit unusual today… and actually walk you through a handful of the most common misconceptions about Motley Fool Pro that sometimes cause investors like you not to join us, starting with…

The two most important things you DON’T
need to benefit from Motley Fool Pro…

As strange as it might sound given the name of the service, the first thing you don’t need is a lot of time…

And the second you don’t need is a lot of investment experience.

Granted, Pro is probably our most complex service here in Motley Fool Australia — and one of the more complex in our entire global product suite.

But it is also designed specifically to help everyday investors who have jobs to go… and families to raise… and dinners to cook… and dogs to walk… and social events to attend… and hobbies to pursue… and, well you get the idea.

Which is why Matt Joass and his team have set Pro up in such a way that you can fully benefit from it in no more than about 30 minutes per month.

In fact, any time Matt and his team decide to buy, sell, trim, or even top up on one of their holdings you’ll get a trade alert just like the one you see below…

As you can see, in plain, easy-to-understand English it clearly lays out…

— Which stock they have decided to buy, sell, trim, or top up on…

— Around what price you should aim to buy it…

— Exacly how much they believe shares to be worth…

— And precisely why they think it’s a great use of both our company’s investment dollars — and also yours.

And in just a matter of minutes, you’ll have a thorough understanding of the opportunity — including upside potential and any possible risks — and can quickly and easily decide if you want to match this trade in your own portfolio.

In other words, with Pro all of the “heavy lifting”… long hours… and tedious research is taken care of for you.

But don’t just take my word for it. Instead, have a listen to what this actual Pro member had to say…

[ Investor testimonial video/s]

(Of course, if you are a more experienced investor… or even just want to spend more time on your investments, with Pro there are endless opportunities to dig even deeper into these opportunities… talk shop with Matt, his team, and fellow members… and expand your investment education. The choice is entirely yours!)

Which actually brings us to the third and fourth things
you DON’T need to benefit from Motley Fool Pro…

As you probably noticed, the trade alert above also lays out what percentage of the money you’ve set aside to follow along with Pro you should allocate to it in order to match the their portfolio.

This is important for a couple reasons…

First off, it means you don’t need a huge amount of money to follow along with Pro.

In fact, because Matt and his team will always present their trade alerts in percentage terms you can easily match their portfolio with just about any amount of money you choose.

What’s more, as you can see below they’ve even built an incredibly-simple-to-use “position size calculator”:

Which will quickly show you exactly how many shares of a given Pro holding you should buy given their recommended allocation and the total amount of money you’ve decided to invest.

This time-saving tool can even take into account things like how many shares of a stock you already own… and any future money you plan to add to your portfolio — and then adjust accordingly.

It really couldn’t be easier!

And I think it’s proof positive that unlike so many other “do-it-yourself” investment advisories out there, with Motley Fool Pro you don’t have to be willing to “go it alone.”

Here’s why I think this is so important —
especially in a market like this one…

I don’t know about you, but I’ve subscribed to my fair share of investment newsletters… financial publications… and stock-picking services over the years…

And if there’s one thing that I always found incredibly disappointing was that a great many of them do little more than throw a laundry list of stocks at you — and then leave you to fend for yourself.

Granted, on the surface, there’s nothing wrong with handing investors like us a list of the “Top 10 stocks to buy in FY18”… or “3 small caps to buy now”…

But the problem comes when we actually decide to buy these stocks, only to six months down the road have one of them double in value — or worse, get cut in half…

Leaving us to agonise over whether it’s time to sell… or if we should hang tight… or if we should maybe even buy more…

Not to mention, scrambling to try to find some reliable insights on what’s really going on with the stock — and where it’s headed next.

It’s happened to me more times than I care to remember… and my guess is that it’s probably happened to you plenty of times, too.

But as a member of Pro you can rest assured that it never will again.

Because not only will Matt and his team alert you whenever they decide to make a trade… but they’ll also keep you up-to-date on all the need-to-know news and developments that affect the stocks in the Pro portfolio…

So you’ll always know whether a sudden drop in a stock’s price signals a major warning sign — or a big buying opportunity…

And you’ll never be left wondering whether it’s time to take profits on a stock that’s had a big run… or if you just should hang on tight and enjoy the ride.

And here’s another $1,000,000 worth of proof that both Pro and The Motley Fool will always be right there
with you, every step of the way…

Remember, unlike many investment newsletters… stock picking services… or even professional money mangers… with Motley Fool Pro you’ll always know that anytime the team recommends you buy a stock, they will also be buying it with our company’s own money.

In fact, as I mentioned earlier, The Motley Fool has handed one million dollars over to Matt Joass to manage in full view of our Pro members.

What’s more, with Pro you’ll always be alerted well in advance of their intentions to buy, sell, trim, or top up on a stock…

Meaning you’ll always have the chance to get into or out of a position before the Pro team does (a measure designed to ensure you have a chance to get an even more favourable price than they do!)

Of course, I’m biased. But I honestly can’t think of a better way of ensuring that their interests and your interests are always perfectly aligned. Can you?

I’m guessing not. And I’m also guessing the fact that you’ve read this far means you’re giving some real thought to being among the mere 575 investors who we can accept into Pro at our heavily discounted “early bird” pricing terms.

But, right about now, you’re probably wondering, “isn’t it too late to join Pro?”

It’s a fair question. Especially given that we launched the portfolio a little over three years ago.

Which is why it’s so important I tell you about the historic
$70,000 “capital call that just happened within Pro…

As I just told you, in total, The Motley Fool has handed $1,000,000 over to Matt Joass to manage in Pro — but there’s a little more to the story…

You see, rather than just dumping all $1,000,000 into a brokerage account on Day 1, Pro was set up in such a way that Matt can “call” for more of his $1,000,000 allotment any time he spots some especially compelling opportunities in the market.

Of course, this will usually happen when the market — or a specific stock — sells off for no good reason, and Matt spots a bargain he feels he just can’t pass up.

But occasionally it will happen when the market is soaring and “values” are increasingly hard to come by… yet Matt feels there are still some very intriguing — and potentially market-crushing — opportunities that most other investors are overlooking.

And such is the case right now!

In fact, just before we kicked off our Pro FY18 Investor Summit, Matt sparked some major excitement around both the Pro community and our offices by making a single capital call for $70,000 — which amounts to 7% of his total cash allotment for the Pro portfolio.

Now, I realise that might not sound all that impressive on the surface… but you should know that this is the single biggest capital call we’ve ever seen in Pro!

And when you consider that prior to this, Matt and his team had only put a total of $520,000 (or 52%) to work, you’ll begin to see just what a big deal this is!

Plus, you’ll also start to see why I say that…

The fifth thing you DON’T need to join us in Pro
is a willingness to scramble to play “catch up.”

Granted, there are already a total of 15 stock positions in the portfolio — all of which you’ll eventually have to buy if you want to your portfolio to exactly match the Pro portfolio…

(Many of our members choose to just closely mirror it, instead, though — which is perfectly fine!)

But you should know that in order to get new members up to speed with a minimum amount of time and effort on their part, Matt and his team have put together a convenient and easy-to-follow “Pro Quick Start Guide”…

Which highlights three holdings from the Pro portfolio that they believe new members should buy before all others because they represent the best opportunities for your money right now.

Among them are…

— A “boring but beautiful stock” (as my wife calls it), that you may be somewhat familiar with given that it was recently named a “Best Buy Now” in both our Share Advisor and Dividend Investor services.

This steady-as-she-goes company has been in business for nearly a half century — even though it has only been listed on the ASX for a few years — and now operates over 1,000 locations.

Despite already more than doubling in value on our Pro scorecard (and being Pro’s single largest holding), Matt believes that some highly intriguing recent acquisitions… a first-rate management team… and the potential for future dividend hikes, make this one of the most exciting and promising stocks on the Pro scorecard.

— A small, under-the-radar technology company that the Pro team has topped up on an incredible six times so far — including just a few months ago.

What Matt loves most about this company is that in addition to having a rock-solid balance sheet and durable underlying cash flows, it’s also got a remarkably smart acquisition strategy that should turbo-charge future value creation.

Combine this with that fact that a recent pullback has shares selling for roughly 50% less than what Matt believes they’re actually worth, and you’ll begin to see why this is one stock any serious investor will want to buy right away!

— An often overlooked and relatively low risk ASX-listed investment vehicle that offers instant diversification into a basket of wide-moat businesses that don’t trade on the ASX…

By owning this blend of companies, you can tap directly into one of Pro’s favourite sectors — all while adding more stability and international flavour to your portfolio.

And when you consider that Pro’s stated goal is to beat the market with below-market risk, you’ll begin to see why Matt and his team believe investments like this one are the “secret sauce” that can help them to do just that!

So, as you can see, the moment you join you’ll have plenty of incredibly intriguing and timely opportunities to choose from…

As well as clear-cut guidance on which ones to buy in order to begin mirroring the Pro portfolio in the most effective and efficient way possible.

In other words, Pro takes all the “guesswork” out of building a rock-solid portfolio designed to prosper in any market.

What’s more, should you ever have any questions about…

— The stocks the Pro team is buying and selling — and why they are making these moves…

— The team’s thoughts on how market fluctuations might affect the stocks from the Pro portfolio that you own…

— Which of their holdings they are most confident in — or if it’s “too late” to buy a given stock…

You can always post it, anytime day or night, on our members-only discussion forums, just like this member recently did:

While it’s important to note that due to legal restrictions nobody from the Pro team will be able to offer you personalised advice about your specific financial situation…

I would point out that this member got an answer directly from Pro’s Research Analyst, Ryan Newman, within the hour!

And, I’m proud to say that, as someone who’s constantly combing through our discussion forums (mostly because of all the incredibly valuable information I find there), quick responses directly from the team tend to be the rule — and not the exception.

Which brings us to the sixth thing you don’t need
in order to join us in Pro today…

And that’s that you don’t need to settle for being “just another face in the crowd”.

I don’t know about you, but if there’s one thing that downright infuriates me, it’s when I call up a brokerage or a bank that I’ve entrusted my hard-earned money to — only to be forced through an endless maze of electronic menus…

All so I can finally be put on hold for five… ten… or sometimes even fifteen minutes and finally be connected to someone who can’t even answer my question — and has to transfer me to someone else who can!

It’s also why — even though I truly wish we could accommodate every investor who wanted to join Pro today — we’ve decided we can accept no more than 575 new members during this “early bird” window.

After all, Matt and his team are incredibly busy as it is…

And were we not to restrict the number of new members we allowed into Pro we might run the risk of not being able to provide members the kind of prompt, hands-on attention that the Pro franchise has become known for by investors around the world.

“This really is a first-class service, and I am having a great time learning and implementing the strategies. Well worth the price of entry in my book.”

“My experience has simply been more than words can adequately describe, and I cannot imagine not being a member. My best investment was joining the Fool, and PRO in particular.”

Plus, as I mentioned a moment ago, in order to ensure that our Pro members have a real shot to profit from some of the smaller — and less common — trades the Pro team makes, we have to limit the number of investors they recommend these trades to.

So I hope you’ll understand why we’ve had to set this strict member limit — and why if you’re interested in claiming your spot (and saving up to $6,998 in the process) we’ll need to hear from you right away.

[Simply click here to discover how to claim your spot
— and save up to $6,998 when you do!]

Which brings us directly to the seventh thing you don’t need to join us today…

With Pro you don’t have to settle for just owning
the same small handful of big name stocks that
nearly every other Aussie investor does…

Of course, as a serious investor who’s committed to growing your wealth as much as possible over time, you obviously understand that the key to striking it rich in any kind of market is to…

1) buy something that most others in that market are currently undervaluing, and then…

2) selling it once other buyers begin to wake up to its true value.

However, that’s easier said than done — especially here in Australia, where so many investors have so much of their wealth tied up in the same 10 to 20 blue chip companies.

As a matter of fact, according to ASX, on average, Australian share investors have more than 60% of their investment dollars committed to a group of behemoths that include the big four banks, Telstra and BHP Billiton.

And while these stocks have certainly performed well over time as a whole, when everyone tends to own the same huge, well-known, and widely covered stocks, it becomes increasingly unlikely that the market is undervaluing any one of them…

Which can not only drastically limit the potential upside for investors like you and me — but also open us up to a variety of downside risks that really have nothing to do with the underlying companies themselves.

And that’s precisely why the Pro team spends so much
of their time “fishing where others aren’t.”

In fact, I think it really bears repeating that Matt attributes much of Pro’s amazing market-crushing success to these four seldom-practiced investment principles:

1) Generally avoiding blue chips — especially mining and banking shares…

2) Finding Australian-based and ASX-listed companies that draw a significant amount of their revenues from international markets…

3) Managing downside risk by buying companies with pristine balance sheets and healthy cash cushions that can weather inevitable economic downturns…

4) Seeking out huge — yet underappreciated and underfollowed — growth opportunities that tend to exist in both small-cap and technology shares…

Of course, for many investors who’ve been content to simply hold the same few blue chips for the past few years — or even decades — this might all sound “out there”…

And right about now you may be wondering if a service like Pro won’t be a little too “over your head.”

Which is why I think it’s about time I highlight
the eighth and ninth things you don’t need
to join us in Pro today…

You don’t need to expect to constantly be trading in and out of stocks…

And you don’t need to be willing to take a bunch of big risks.

Granted, Pro is designed for committed investors who are serious about growing the money they have into the wealth they want…

And, as such, it has a very unique and forward-thinking approach to portfolio management that some less experienced investors may find simply doesn’t suit them.

But you can rest assured that Pro is a Motley Fool service, first and foremost…

By that I mean that it takes the same long-term, disciplined, and measured approach to investing that we’ve been advocating since our founders launched this company nearly 24 years ago.

In fact, if you’re looking for a rapid-fire day-trading type of service where you’re constantly buying and selling, then Pro most likely isn’t right for you.

Because in our nearly quarter century of experience, we’ve found that this approach is an almost surefire way to lose all your money…

And in our opinion, anyone who tells you otherwise either hasn’t been doing this long enough… or wants your money far more than they want your business.

Meanwhile, our Pro team is run by died-in-the-wool Foolish investors who are proud to do things a little bit differently than most of the rest of the financial industry.

Here’s just a little bit more about them, in case you’re interested:

[ Insert Matt picture w/accordion Bio]

[Insert Ryan picture w/accordion Bio]

After seeing their bios… hearing more about their Foolish approach to investing… and seeing their incredible results, I imagine you’re beginning to see why The Motley Fool has $1,000,000 worth of confidence in the Pro team…

And why my wife and I didn’t think twice before committing $500,000 of our own hard-earned money to following along with Pro.

Given that you’ve stuck with me this far, I’m guessing you’re giving claiming one of our remaining “early bird” spots some real thought — which is great!

But I imagine you’ve also got some questions you’d love to get answered directly by Matt Joass himself. Which is why I’m incredibly excited to tell you that…

If you join us in Pro during this brief “early bird” window
you can grab a free front row seat to an exclusive event
I think you’ll find extremely valuable…

Namely our “Pro FY18 Kickoff Call” — which Matt will be hosting exclusively for the benefit of our brand new Pro members this Thursday, July 27 at 12:30 AEST.

During this interactive chat you can get any pressing questions you have about Pro and how to best benefit from it answered directly by Matt.

This could include anything from…

— How to determine how much of your overall investment capital to dedicate to following along with Pro…

— Which stocks you should look to buy next after you buy the three starter stocks you discover in our “Pro Quick Start Guide”.

— What to do if you already own stocks that are in the Pro portfolio in allocations different than what Pro is recommending…

— Or anything else that’s on your mind about Pro and how to get the absolute most out of it…

Of course, at this point, you probably have one final question you need to get answered before you make any decisions about joining us in Pro in the first place…

How much will it cost you to join Motley Fool Pro today?

I’m glad you asked…

Because it actually brings us to the final thing you don’t need in order to “go Pro” with us today…

You DON’T need to be willing to pay the kind of exorbitant fees that many investment “pros” often charge — or even anywhere near our own RRP, for that matter!

Granted, I do need to point out that due to the incredible market-beating performance of Motley Fool Pro since it launched — and the fact that it’s already helped our members to nearly double their invested capital — we recently decided to raise our standard one-year membership price to $3,999.

I also need to point out that when you join us today, you’ll instantly gain access to well over three years worth of painstaking analysis, research, and due diligence by Matt and his team…

Not to mention, the full details on a carefully crafted portfolio of often obscure stocks that have helped our members to nearly double their money — and absolutely destroy the return of the ASX All Ords. in process.

For this reason, we cannot offer our standard 30-day membership-fee-back guarantee. We hope you understand that it simply wouldn’t be fair to our loyal, paying members of Pro.

However, the good news in all of this is that as you’re about to see, if you…

— Join us right now through this time-sensitive invitation…
— Take advantage of our most-cost-effective membership term…
— And lock in your soon-to-expire “early bird” discount…

You can actually put Matt Joass and Pro to work for you today for as little as $1,666 per year… or just $4.57 per day.

That’s a full $6,998 LESS than you’d normally have to pay for three full years of membership…

And if you really stop to think about it, you may discover that that’s actually less than you’re paying each day for your morning coffee… or drinks with friends and colleagues after work… or even petrol to get your kids (or grandkids) to and from all of their activities.

Given the huge returns Pro has delivered our members, our relatively small membership fee may also
come as a big surprise to you…

After all, many serious investors like you could pay $10,000 or more per year, every year, to their advisors or professional money managers for what could be often sub-standard service and returns.

Yet you can join us in Pro today for a mere fraction of that — and start putting all of these valuable features and benefits to work for you the moment you do…

The Pro interactive scorecard — showing you every single stock the Pro team currently has our company’s own money invested in. Complete with full research write-ups on each holding that outline all the need-know-details on everything from growth opportunities… to management… to financials… to any risks you need to be aware of.

Timely trade alerts — giving you the full story on any stocks the Pro team is planning on buying or selling. As well as simple-to-follow instructions on how to match the trade in your own portfolio — including details on when to buy… how much to pay… and what percentage of your portfolio to put towards it.

Our dynamic yet easy-to-use “position size calculator” — which will show you exactly how many shares of a given stock you should buy in order to match a previous Pro trade in your own portfolio. It can even take things like future investments and shares you already own into account and adjust accordingly!

Weekly updates — so you’ll always be up-to-date on all the crucial news and developments that affect holdings within the Pro portfolio that you may own.

Plus, as I mentioned a moment ago, you’ll be among the select few investors in our investment community who will get to join us for our Pro FY18 Kickoff Call that will be taking place this Thursday, July 27.

If you’ve spent as much time researching professional investing events as I have you know that some of them will charge you $300… $600… or even $1,000 just to get your foot in the door — let alone get your questions answered by top investors.

But if you join us in Pro during you can take in our upcoming FY18 Kickoff Call in its entirety — all from the comfort of your home or office — at no additional charge to you.

Given everything I’ve showed you today, I think you’ll see why I say Pro could easily charge every bit as much as
any of our far more expensive competitors…

Especially when you consider that had you chosen to follow along with Pro since the beginning and invested just $25,000, so far you would have earned an average of nearly $6,500 per year in profits…

And, had you made a more sizeable $50,000 commitment, you’d have earned an average of nearly $13,000 per year!

Yet if you claim your spot right now and take advantage of our absolute best offer, you’ll pay just $4,999 for three full years of membership.

(And you won’t even have to hand control of your hard-earned money over to someone who you may hardly know — let alone trust completely!)

Remember, that’s a full $6,998 (or 58%) LESS than you’d otherwise have to pay for three years of membership…

And it means you can put Matt Joass and his team to work for you starting today for only $1,666 per year — or just $4.57 per day.

Or, if you’d rather, you can always just join us for a one-year term for $2,999 — which still represents a full $1,000 off our one-year RRP.

Is what we’re charging for Pro more than you’re currently paying for financial advice? Possibly.

Is joining Pro guaranteed to make you rich? Of course not.

Is it the only financial advice you’ll ever need? Doubtful.

So, is it really worth it? I think so, without a doubt — especially given the life-changing returns I’ve showed you today.

And these Pro members obviously agree:

“Joining Pro is the best financial decision I’ve ever made…”

“The value here is much better than going with other financial institutions.”

Plus, I think there’s perhaps never been a more important time for investors like you to confidently and decisively take charge of your financial future.

Especially given that we’re seeing headlines like these popping up day after day…

[ Insert headlines from E1 ]

Not to mention, that we haven’t even begun to fully feel the affects of potential global economic landmines like Brexit… a slowdown in the Chinese economy… or a Trump presidency.

So, I think the question really becomes can you afford not to take advantage of a powerful “all-market” investment solution like Motley Fool Pro at a time like this?

Of course, there is one final thing I’d ask
you please keep in mind…

And that’s while we’d love nothing more than to give you the chance to join us in Pro today… take advantage of up to a $6,998 “early bird” discount… and participate in our exclusive Pro FY18 Kickoff call…

Once we hit our strict 575 “early bird” member cap — or the clock strikes midnight tomorrow — (whichever comes first), we’ll no longer be able to honour the pricing terms we’ve laid out in this invitation…

What’s more, we won’t be able to offer our most-cost-effective three-year-membership term again this year.

In fact, given just how heavily discounted this option is, there’s a solid possibility that you may never see this three-year term offered again.

And even if you do, I think it’s safe to say you can expect to pay a fair bit more for it, especially if the Pro portfolio continues to perform as well as it has thus far.

So please don’t risk missing out on this rare opportunity to “go Pro” — and take advantage of a truly historic discount in the process.
