Thank you Rask! I have always believed in the power of investing and where it can lead but never really had the confidence. You have made the journey interesting educational and broken the often what is seen as complex down simply. Explaining the jargon so that the average person can understand what they are doing. I have learnt so much already! Thank you! Have recommended you to a group of my friends. Cheers. Rachel!

As a new investor and very unsure about finances, I was searching for a trustworthy place to learn without having to fork out money to a scam. The Rask beginners ETF course taught me so much. When they offered a Rask ETF Membership I jumped at it. Owen is so knowledgeable and I trust his judgement as an analyst. Highly recommend!
09:41 04 Dec 21
Great free educational information for those starting out on the ETF journey. Actually there is worthwhile information for anybody wanting to invest in ETFs. I wanted to double check if one of my ETFs was Australian domiciled and Rask Australia was the only place I could find the answer – not even on the ETF’s website.The Rask ETF membership is worthwhile for the suggested portfolios. A really nice package with all the basic information in one place. Such a worthwhile purchase!
06:03 03 Dec 21
Rask EFT Membership is great. There is good advice for all types of investors and concrete ideas on which EFTS to invest in. Easy to understand, and they regularly review their recommendations.
08:48 01 Dec 21
I took out a Rask ETF membership recently and I’m quite pleased with the information and help provided on the site to enable me to create my ETF portfolio. There is so much value here and I’m looking forward to learning more about investing in ETFs.
06:29 29 Nov 21
I started listening to the Australian Podcast to learn a little more about all things investing. I find the podcasts a fantastic listen, very informative and gives you lots of resources to do your own research. I love the business model of building education to help people develop their own wealth. Looking forward to exploring some of their other offerings like the Rask ETF Membership to keep the life long education theme continuing
10:12 10 Nov 21
As a subscriber to the Rask ETF service, it is excellent and commonsense advice and my portfolio is off to a good start.
11:56 03 Nov 21
A fantastic, free site to learn everything about looking after your money and investing, step by step. All the videos, written summaries, and PDF checklists are essential for any Australian who want to grow their wealth over the long-term.The experts in all these videos are authentic and tell you in plain English what you need to do and consider. So much good advice to listen to and take heed. It’s amazing how much information is given for free! And conveniently found all in one place, for each course you take.Keep it up guys, you’re building a better future for many of us!Financial independence here we come! 🥳

As a new investor to the sharemarket, Rask has been invaluable. The education courses, podcasts and blogs have cleared up alot of the confusion around the sharemarket, the multitude of terms and acronyms and the general landscape of both local and international markets. If you are new to investing and want a platoform that brings clarity to the sharemarket, Rask is the place to go. Thanks team, Dan
11:15 28 Oct 21
Good quality content.
05:16 25 Oct 21
Highly recommend the content and professionalism of Rask. Always learning, heaps of free content and no gimmicks.
23:35 23 Oct 21
The Aust Finance Podcast was recommended to me by a work colleague a while back. Not being very financially savvy, I decided to change that and so eventually I tuned in to Episode 1 to see if any of it would make sense to a newbie like myself! Well – it certainly did and everything they said resonated in some small way. I started at Ep 1 and have been making my through the different episodes, learning heaps along the way. What they say makes complete sense to me and whilst I’ll never be a huge investor, or get rich from shareholdings (starting too late in life!), I feel I have the courage now to delve a bit deeper into this financial journey! Thanks Owen & Kate – I’ve really appreciated the free podcasts and I’m now looking at doing some of the free tutorials on the website as well. I’ve also taken out a RASK ETF Subscription as well. I always love a good deal – and I think the suite of offerings from RASK is a great deal, particularly for novices such as myself. Well done on an excellent service – free podcast, free educational tutorials, great website and resources – and they’re also available via so many platforms! Love it!
21:44 23 Oct 21
I enjoyed the courses Rask is offering and through the Rask Invest membership one can see the principles being applied. The course has helped me put a better investment process around my strategy.
05:01 18 Oct 21

RASK provides valuable (financial) educational material that is compact and easy to understand
08:31 26 Sep 21
Whilst searching for podcasts to help me on my journey to seek knowledge and help build wealth, I came across the Australian Finance Podcast, the content provided by Kate and Owen is informative, interesting, relateable and fresh. I have listened to nearly every one and am working through the Australian Investors Podcasts now.These brought me to the Rask Website and the well designed free courses they provide.If your looking to start your investing journey, particularly into EFT’s, their ‘Beginners EFT Investing Course’ is a great tool to get your head in the game and completely up to speed.This course led me to join Rask’s EFT Membership, which has a wealth of information and very easy to use sample portfolios to help get you started. They are also handily catered to different life stages, risk levels, and even have Ethical and Thematic options.There is also very useful content which guides you whist building your portfolio. For such a low outlay you get lifetime membership to a great resource, thoroughly recommend it! Thanks Rask Australia!
05:48 26 Sep 21
The Rask courses made financial and investing terms easy to understand and they have given me a great foundation to build on. They also didn’t drag on and kept me engaged! The “Rask invest” service follows the same principles as the courses, being user friendly and easy to understand.
05:00 26 Sep 21
22:39 25 Sep 21
Owen brings raw honesty and integrity and his enthusiasm, work ethic and plain speaking is refreshing. He pays attention to detail but cuts through the noise. Hook onto the Rask train.
07:35 19 Sep 21
Rask’s short courses on investing are clear, succinct and perfect for busy people. They are better than other resources I’ve come across online. Their podcast is fantastic – informative, measured and well researched without banter fluff. Though Rask’s resources I’ve developed clarity and confidence in my investment strategy.
11:36 18 Sep 21
I like Rask Invest so far. The recommendations are well researched and made when the relevant analyst thinks the company is worth investing in – not on an arbitrary monthly basis.
10:41 16 Sep 21

Love the podcasts and the online courses. Makes learning about investing much more interesting. Rask has made me confident into starting in the investing game! Well done 11/10 !
02:49 12 Sep 21
I’m from NZ, so I need informed, expert and practical input for Australia. The podcasts and the information are all excellent. Whatever stage of your investing journey you’re at you’ll learn something from the team at Rask.
10:09 02 Sep 21
My journey in investing started 12 years ago – to cut to the chase I have learnt (sometimes the hard way) that there are very few independent, honest, transparent, unbiased, unconflicted & genuine people educating the public with the public interest truly at heart – & so I stumbled upon RASK & the Rask ETF membership who fulfills all of the above criteria. Stay true to your cause RASK & you will make a huge difference to people’s lives. You are indeed one of the few good guys in the finance industry.
07:02 01 Sep 21
06:37 29 Aug 21
The Rask ETF membership is the best course/source of information I have come across. Followed by informative weekly podcasts! Keep up the good work!
04:50 21 Aug 21
Great content – worth the time investment
10:44 05 Aug 21
Has been extremely helpful as I have just started my investing journey.
22:43 04 Aug 21
The Rask Invest Membership has been a great platform for learning how to build an investment portfolio. I like how transparent the Rask Invest team are, it’s great to be apart of the community.
04:13 04 Aug 21
The Ethical Investing 101 Course was fantastic. All the courses they offer are very well structured.
00:44 03 Aug 21
Great free courses and podcasts at Rask Australia for beginner investors like me. I highly recommend checking them out.
04:08 29 Jul 21
I get a buzz when i receive my Rask Invest updates. So helpful, sound advice and ideas about where to make my money grow. If you are wanting to find info pooled in one site this is it. Like 5he reviews and ticker codes.
08:13 28 Jul 21
Wanted to invest in US shares/ETF’s on RASK Invest and had some questions. Helpful assistance was provided same day.
09:46 26 Jul 21
I’ve only sign up recently but since listening to the Rask podcast and finding the website and taking the plunge I have reviewed my financial standing I have cleaned up my debt and taken 190% more responsibility and interest in this area in all of my adult life I think what Rask does is really awesome for Australians and I believe more people should be on this platform learning And taking the time to get this stuff right thank you Rask I appreciate all the good that you guys are doing.
06:18 26 Jul 21
great idea all together .thanks you so much
04:52 21 Jul 21
Excellent course for fresh beginner on finance. As a science-based young person, this is such a helpful course to get my head around my personal finance and start my interest in investing!! Thanks so much for creating this (FREE!!) course!
08:58 17 Jul 21
As an ex Barefoot Blueprinter, I was dismayed when it shut down, and have looked for a worthy replacement ever since. Until I stumbled upon RASK, and my search was over. Now I receive regular updates on my holdings, what to buy and when to buy it — I don‘t have to spend my time checking and researching. On top of that, I can use their online courses on various investment subjects, all inclusive in their membership. For the most part, that‘s exactly what an investing amateur like myself needs, without using expensive investment advisors, some of whom have been proven to work in their own interest, not their clients‘. For a modest fee, I can take care of it myself, under the guidance of RASK.
06:58 17 Jul 21
I have consumed Rask Products from a distance for a while now. Doing the free courses, listening to both podcast and digesting the weekly emails. I’ve even taken a few stock ideas to my own portfolio. And while not all of them have brought about any special returns, I am now in a position to start long term investing. So I am happy to subscribe to “Rask ETF membership“ because I truely believe Owen and his team genuinely strive for a product that is helpful. So it’s about time I stopped mooching off the freebies and give something back (even if it was on sale). Straight away I’ve been provided with some great ideas to suit the position I want to be at in 15 years.
02:08 16 Jul 21
09:53 15 Jul 21
I love Rask – its a site created by investors for investors. Plenty of valuable insight and a great place for beginner investors to learn. Seasoned investors will enjoy the valuable insights and amazing guest that share their advice. The ETF membership is a dream – straight forward answers – no smoke and mirrors – Simply Magic – Thank you Rask team
05:20 15 Jul 21
Rask has given me the inspiration and information to begin my investing journey. I only wish I had found them sooner. I have listened to all the Podcasts & done some of their on-line education. Now to try and educate my young adult children to listen to the podcast and get their own inspiration to build their wealth!
22:44 08 Jul 21
Excellent service. Information is concise and digestible.
Tim and Corryn Hatch
23:14 06 Jul 21
I really enjoy the Rask Invest recommendations a long with all the other informative courses! Worth the cost and time
10:36 25 Jun 21
the best investing information I’ve ever gotten namely because I could understand and learn this stuff like a sponge unlike books and other things I’ve read where I am confused Owen is a really good teacher I am pumped I am going to do all the courses
04:49 15 Jun 21
Fantastic, easy to digest and follow FREE courses to get anyone started in the world of investing. What an amazing resource Owen and his team are.

I subscribed to the “Rask ETF membership” after listening to heaps of podcast episodes of the 2 podcasts produced by Owen and the team. The podcasts are a great listen, where finance and investing knowledge are broken down into simple, easy to understand and remember terms that really help to explain the concepts and expand my knowledge. You can hear clearly the passion Owen has for investing and it’s rather inspiring.The “Rask ETF membership” gives me access to easy-to-read explanations on everything around investing in ETF. The model portfolios are great examples of portfolio construction and how to diversify your investments.Overall, I’m happy that I subscribed to the service and I look forward to listening to more entertaining episodes of the podcast to come!
10:41 02 Jun 21
I purchased a Rask Invest membership after stumbling across the Australian Finance Podcast. Prior to signing up, I did some of their free courses, which I loved! The podcast and Rask Invest membership have changed the way I manage my money and have helped me work out how to invest. It’s not actually that scary or difficult to understand once Owen, Kate and other awesome Rask staff members explain it!
23:16 29 May 21
This website is a great place to start when trying to figure out the world of investing. The Free courses are a great way to learn about the ins and outs of shares and etfs.The podcasts are a must listen.
03:19 15 May 21
For so long I had felt left out of the conversation when it came to the topics of personal finance and investing, but the team at Rask and the community behind them have been an invaluable asset to my own personal financial journey. Their podcast series, research articles & courses, online community forums and most importantly their Rask Invest service have not only helped me get my finances to a much happier place but they have made the world of investing so much more accessible and supportive. Thanks heaps to Owen, Kate and the Team,Keep up the great work 🙂
09:29 12 May 21
Just completed one of the free courses offered online. This was so educational and without all the jargon. Loved it and will be doing more. Thank you for offering this great service.
20:01 09 May 21
I wanted a refresher on personal finance and budgeting and this course was exactly what I was after. It was informative, easy to digest and I enjoyed the way it was presented. Plus it’s free!!!! I look forward to my next Rask course. Thank you! I
07:06 28 Apr 21
Good source of information and some great free courses for people looking for more information on ETFs. The podcast is very good too. Keep up the good work.
14:02 17 Apr 21
LOVING THE ETF MEMBERSHIP:I have looked for simple investing and financial advice service like Rask since Barefoot Blueprint has shutdown, but cannot find anything like this. Ever since I stumbled across Rask Financial podcast last month, I was hooked! I have binge listened to all the episodes, and I am on Rask website almost every day for free education and blogs. I am a big fan of all Owen’s work (Free Rask education, Rask Media and the AF and AI Podcasts on top of the Invest & ETF subscription services). Also recently joined the ETF membership and it is definitely worth the money. Advise (even though its general in nature 🙂 ) given is simple and easy to follow and Owen is down to earth and honest guy and has genuine attitude to help others. I have been building my core portfolio based on the ETF advise and very happy with it. I can’t wait to join the Investing and rockets membership service as soon as I am ready. SO A MASSIVE THANK YOU, OWEN!
23:33 15 Apr 21
The online courses and podcasts are what initially attracted me to RASK, I was really impressed with the content and effort. Have since signed up for Rask Invest and have found Owen and the team to be first class with their research and ethos. Thanks for having me onboard.
10:37 14 Apr 21
Rask Australia makes everything easy to understand .For me to understand ETF was easy and good experience
03:01 11 Apr 21
Amazing source of information! Thank you! for this service 🙂
02:46 09 Apr 21
10:26 07 Apr 21
I came across Rask Finance when looking for a finance podcast. Kate and Owen explain things in an easy to understand way and the length of podcasts make it easy to get through an episode each day.The free courses online are also great, but I would like to see an improvement in accessibilty of the courses. For example, adding captions to the videos makes your content accessible to people who are deaf or hard of hearing, or for parents who may have sleeping babies. Making these changes will only attract more diverse people to engage with your business. Cheers, Jo
03:36 25 Mar 21
Lost a lot of money following their “expert tips”. Would caution against using their services.
09:31 21 Mar 21
Rask ETF MembershipCouldn’t rate the Rask ETF Membership more highly. Excellent learning platform for someone who is either new to investing or someone more experienced who wants thorough research at their fingertips. The model portfolios area great starting point and I have based my core portfolio around them.
05:15 11 Mar 21
I was researching ETF’s when I came across your article on A Beginner’s Guide to micro investing in Australia and decided to do the free Beginner’s ETF Investing course that was referred to in the article. I found the course very informative and easy to understand and the additional resources very helpful. I will certainly be making use of your website in the future. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.
09:15 09 Feb 21
I have been investing for about 2 years now and I have been following RASK Australia now for over a year via podcast. I have completed most of the courses available on the website and in the new year joined the RASK Invest Membership. All content that Owen has provided has been very informative and has helped in learning the basics, and would still be useful for even the intermediate/advanced investor. I have already purchased multiple companies that have been suggested by Owen and will continue to use RASK Invest. I highly recommend all his services to anyone.
10:04 30 Jan 21
Having just started my investing journey I found the information in the Rask ETF membership invaluable. I feel so much more confident knowing that I’m doing the right thing now which will help me over the next 25 years, instead of looking back at missed opportunities. If you are like me and unsure about investing but don’t have the time to study everything, I would highly recommend the Rask ETF membership for great advice on how investing works and on specific EFTs to invest in.
07:05 04 Jan 21
Hi, I have recently joined RASK Invest. I have found the learning sessions informative and quite entertaining. Good to see someone in finance with a sense of humour. I’m a novice investor or nothing investor!! ( that’s my joke). When I started the learning process what really occurred to me is how valuable it would be to my man and woman child! If I can encourage them to pay themselves first and consider themselves more worthy than Tax bills and indulgences then that could be a good outcome all round. Perhaps I won’t need to support them until they are 40?. Some good advice but a little difficult to navigate the website but persevering! Remember I’m a novice. Cheers Lisa
06:35 01 Jan 21
I recently completed a couple of Rask Education courses and I think it is a great service. Firstly I would like to say that the FIRE one is not just great value (because its free, but also it’s time well spent). It gives you the thought bubbles, tools and brainstorms to design a more personal and fullfilling life, rather than the typical greed of the financial world. Great work Kate and Owen!! I can’t wait to do and complete all of your courses… Oh I love the podcasts too!!!
22:58 29 Dec 20
I have only just recently joined Rask invest but have found the content informative and easy to understand. I decided to join after listening to the Australian investors and finance podcasts by rask which really helped to improve my knowledge of investing.
23:25 27 Dec 20
I recently joined Rask Invest and I’ve found it to be a great program for all levels of investor’s with well explained concepts making investing easy to understand. 10/10 would recommend.
06:07 11 Dec 20
Fully recommend Rask Australia – only recently subscribed to the service, but I’ve seen very good quality content (for beginners to more savvy investors) and it’s an overall very neat platform with a lot more functionality/sections than I thought initially. Owen has been great with replying back with some questions I had as well so that’s a big plus. Thanks Owen!
07:29 03 Dec 20
Absolute waste of moneyRask is a two bit shop providing lousy financial advice and very poorly written atticles using delapidated old information to push their agenda.They will write an article slandering a company then claim they have no vested interest in that asx listed stock but do have a vested interest in a competing asx listed stock. Totally unprofessional, should be formally investigated and locked upNot worth taking a dump on imho rubbish company, service and product.
06:12 02 Dec 20
Thank you Owen , your shares course for beginners is great, simple and breaks down many of the myths and industry jargon for laywomen and laymen
03:27 22 Nov 20
This is an updated review of Rask Invest after being with them for a couple of years.In a nutshell their research is presented thoroughly, focused mostly in the technology space in stable, cash generating, Aussie and international companies that will compound your money over the long term.Owen and his staff reply in the comment section of the research, where you can ask questions and read (some brilliant) questions from other membersThey do not offer new buy ideas every month on a certain day like some other services, only sticking to their highest conviction ideas. Saying that they have been building out the service with ‘thought pieces’, interviews, podcasts, and it is no wonder Owen has been hiring so he can manage it all!!I have not bought all the share picks, and have bought some years after the first recomendation, and drip fed money into them. The returns? 120%, 30%, 32%, 33%, 3%, and 62%. I did miss his one dodgy high risk pick that lost money plus a few that shot the lights out.
10:40 14 Oct 20
I’ve been a Rask Invest member for a few months. What really brought me here in the first place and will keep my subscription for a long while is Rask’s investing philosophy: “only 5% of companies are responsible for all market’s excess returns”. That’s why you will see that there are only around 10 stocks/ETFs that are recommended for Rask Invest members from inception back in 2018. And those companies are high-conviction picks that would be worth your investment not just in a few years but in a very long term (5+ years). Just check the scorecard and let the numbers speak for itself
07:19 11 Oct 20
I’ve been a long time listener to the Rask Australia podcasts and have been a full member of Rask Invest for a couple of months. Rask provides in-depth analysis and reasoning for recommendations and present it in a way that is understandable by almost anyone. I would highly recommend. Keep up the good work Owen and team.
00:09 11 Oct 20
After listening to the Australian investor podcast and the Australian finance podcast you get a feel for what Owen and his team are successfully achieving. They genuinely want to help people better peoples finances and make their money work for them. There’s a few subscriptions to choose from depending on your risk tolerance. Also, the reports and recommendations are timed great. The site is easy to use and the regular emails make for good reading.
23:05 16 Sep 20
As someone who left the market years ago, I was directionless in my return approach. Rask has a nice well-rounded approach with clear steps to get you started. If you’re a total novice and need to learn the in’s and out’s of how, where and what to invest in, this has you covered. For someone like myself who knew the basics, but struggled with where to put my money, Rask was fantastic in helping me make informed decisions. I’ve molded my investment philosophy around some of the aspects from these courses, taken tips on ETF’s and most importantly: learnt about better valuation of companies I’m interested in to remove a lot of the uncertainty of “is this company ACTUALLY a good company?”.Could not recommend the full subscription more. Fantastic work, thanks Owen!
03:30 09 Sep 20
I am Rask Rocket, member, so informative, and the podcasts, are great,I am happy my daughters, have taken interest in raskfiance.The confidence it has give me.Thanks Raskfiance
04:29 01 Sep 20
The Rask Invest membership is a truly invaluable resource. Owen and his team provide genuine and educational content that really empowers you, the investor. The platform is visually appealing with engaging and easy-to-read and understand content. This membership has given me the knowledge, tools, and confidence to invest in ETFs and small-caps, and to continue to grow my portfolio and wealth. I have recommended Rask Invest to my investing friends. Also, Owen has a really cool voice!!!
01:41 26 Aug 20
Great service and content for all levels of knowledge. If you are keen to increase your wealth via the sharemarket then you can’t go past Owen and the team @ Rask Invest

BECOME A MEMBER YOU WON’T REGRET IT! After listening to the Australian Finance Podcast and joining the Rask free online courses over the last year, I decided to become a Rask Invest Member. Owen and his team are not only super knowledgeable but they are deeply passionate about helping people to become better with their money. I love the team’s transparency and Owen has personally answered some of my questions on the monthly Q&A video which has given me the confidence to start investing myself. The weekly content is very informative and I have learnt soo much within just one year. Owen’s investment strategy is very logical and he caters for investors of all ages and experience levels. Thanks for your guidance over this past year and I look forward to renewing my membership with you! I have already recommended you to my friends and family!
06:15 21 Aug 20
Very happy Rask subscriber! I love the website and all the information and content. Since joining Rask I have embraced the Core and Satellite approach to portfolio management and feel comfortable investing in the high conviction stocks recommended. Super pleased with the performance of the share recommendations so far.
11:18 20 Aug 20
I’m a member of Rask Invest and Rask Rockets. I love the wide ranging and thought provoking topics that Owen and the team provide. They also provide prompt and timely analysis on any of their recommendations too. Well done and keep up the great work!
11:03 20 Aug 20
Smart, earnest, honest and adds value to my portfolio
09:48 20 Aug 20
I’ve been a follower and paid member of the services provided by the Rask Group since November 2018. That must make me one of the earliest supporters!I originally joined for the education information. Since those early days I have completed 4 of the Rask online courses and have found the information contained in the courses to be second to none. You can see that Owen has a true passion for investing and education in the investment field.The subscription to Rask Invest provides in-depth recommendations and most importantly, why the recommendation was made.I have also recently purchased a subscription to Rasks newest service, Rask Rockets. The level of detail in the selection and analysis of each of the recommendations is very detailed.Owen also has 2 regular podcasts that are available through the Rask site and other sources. There is so much free content from Rask. Sign up for a free account. What have you got to lose?I would have no hesitation in recommending Rask to anyone who is interested in learning about investing and finance.
09:36 20 Aug 20
Rask Invest has been great for my investing journey. Loving all the content provided and a great source of information if you are starting out. Has only been my first six months but I can see myself keeping my subscription for a very long time. Rask Team and Owen Thankyou for such a great service, very professional.
