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!

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 🙂

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.

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 🙂

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.

Absolutely love what Owen and his team are doing over at Rask. The information and content they put out is top quality and has been an amazing thing to stumble upon. The content they put out for free is better than so many paid sites. Came for the podcasts, stayed for the education. Cheers guys and gals, please keep up the amazing work!

Owen and the team at Rask Finance are first rate.I would highly recommend them!
15:44 04 Aug 20
Excellent for beginners! recommended .
14:03 01 Jun 20
Very happy to be subscribed to Rask membership. Knowledge gained and amount of information collated and then provided to you is very rewarding. Along with podcasts, rask media and online courses. Would recommend for all levels of investors from beginning to advanced.Would love to attend another workshop again.
04:24 31 May 20
I highly recommend the Rask Courses and associated podcasts to anyone and everyone of whatever age. I wish such a thing was more readily available when I was younger. By using the free tutorials and podcasts I have become more informed, making the decision to not only begin investing but to further my self education and knowledge.Cheers to Owen and his team and Thank You!
23:13 26 May 20
Fantastic platform for people new (or accomplished) to the world of all things finance, from investing, stock market 101, savings accounts, along with jargon breakdown for even the most novice to comprehend. Can’t recommend Rask enough if you want to not only understand your financial situation, but comfortably take responsibility for it.
09:46 04 May 20
I listen to the Australian Financial Podcast quite a bit and enjoy the basic simplicity of what Owen and Kate have to say to help get my money issues in order. I decided to look on the Rask website to further my knowledge on investing and have thoroughly enjoyed the basic investment beginners course. I still havnt started investing but as I go through more of the content Owen and his team put out, I am starting to feel more comfortable on the topic. I really respect thier passion to inform the public on how important investing is. I also love the free courses available, might even do the premium later down the track. Thanks guys 5 stars!
04:53 11 Apr 20
I’ve found these classes very helpful. My money literacy was pretty poor before this but I feel as though I can start to understand stocks and financial news finally. Thanks Owen.
09:26 30 Mar 20
Just completed the ETF for beginners course, great value for a novice investor.Have since bought into 5 ETFs.I can also recommend The Australian Finance podcast.Thanks for educating me Owen and Kate.Looking forward to doing more of your courses.
02:37 05 Mar 20
Fantastic course for beginners like me.

Investing sounds easy, but when push comes to shove it can become quite scary. I became a member at Rask to help with this initial hurdle – after getting burned on Bitcoin. The platform has easy to consume content, and plenty of it. That, matched with the free podcasts has given me such a better base to build off. It’s incredible value for anyone looking to take the next step after their first one.
20:45 25 Oct 19
Best decision I have made. Was struggling to get ahead but after signing up to the paid service and using the budgeting tips I am so much happier and now have money. Add to that the stock tips which are pretty much all winners. I wish I’d had this service offered from a younger age. Owen and the team. Keep up the great work. If I could give 6 stars I would. Thanks
05:10 22 Oct 19
I’m very impressed with my RASK Invest membership! The team are quick to reply to questions, writing in an easy to understand manner :> The analysts stock write ups are straight to the point, giving honest informed opinions.I am glad I joined RASK Invest!
00:14 20 Oct 19
I have really enjoyed the education, market commentary and investment ideas which Rask Invest have produced this past year. With a fantastic return rate and deep insights into the Australian and International markets given through the platform, Owen and the team are quick to respond to any questions, comments or thoughts you might put forth. On top of this, the Rask podcasts are fantastic and should be on the subscription list of anyone who wants to invest in the ASX or US markets. Even if you just want to take time to consider your current financial state and plan for your future, you need to soak in this content. Owen is an insightful and thoughtful host who really pays attention to detail and listens to his audience.Here’s to our financial futures.Subscribe today!5/5

Share recommendations are informative and provide clear reasoning for their recommendations to that others have enough information to determine on their own whether this is something the individual investor would also be comfortable investing into. Tends to look from several viewpoints. They also appear to be open and honest about their performance, having consistently mentioning that their recent highly positive results arise from outperformance in a single stock.I would recommend this service, given the above, and also the fact that there is little overhyping of performance, and the authors are transparent.
22:15 17 Oct 19
Very informative, I have learnt more than expedited. Great podcast and my portfolio has made great gains
08:00 14 Oct 19
This is a great service with a tonne of resources around how to learn more about investing. I also really enjoy the regular information to members about future investment opportunities with a strong focus on making sure that everything is easy to understand. Absolutely recommend this service.
01:08 14 Oct 19
This is a great concept developed by Owen which is exactly what i was looking for from a financial education and advice point of view. Great work – keep the advice and feedback coming!
00:36 13 Oct 19
High quality content starting to build up improving the offering as a whole -was a bit less than I like at first. I especially like the recent addition of the buy idea section and the growing investment research – I would like the addition of buy ranges at the top for stocks. Looking forward to the online forum getting a bit more traffic as more people join and the Rask Events are a nice bonus for subscribers. It suits all investors from beginner to more advanced with handy tutorials for those that want to improve their own knowledge. A good alternative for those that don’t want or need an adviser but would like some wealth and investing guidance.
02:45 12 Oct 19
Good library on a broad range of financial topics. Solid performance (albeit limited time frame) on the model portfolio. The newly added watch list has been very insightful and a welcome addition.
22:05 11 Oct 19
Rask Invest provides high quality information. Would definitely recommend that anyone who is interested in learning about their finances and starting to invest in shares.
21:10 11 Oct 19
I have been a Rask Invest member for the past 6 months now and have found the information really helpful with building my portfolio.There is plenty of good information for people getting their finances in order beyond investing and this is where I would recommend new members start before looking for ways to put their money into the share market.I found Rask Invest when I was trying to find a replacement for Barefoot Investor and for all intents and purposes this is the closes alternative I have found. The costs are roughly the same, as is the advice, though Rask provides 2 clear investment streams (ETF only portfolio vs. an ETF + Shares portfolio). Having both options is very useful for new investors as this ETFs are generally a safer/simpler approach when you are just getting started.Individual share recommendations are detailed and useful though if comparing Rask’s information to the Barefoot Blueprint I think that the Blueprint laid out it’s stocks more clearly (single page nicely formatted) and Barefoot also used to give a recommendation as to what price they thought you should buy at. Rask provides a buy/hold/sell recommendation for stocks and is upfront about their interest and risks which is important when taking advice. They also provide a 5 day delay between when they recommend a specific purchase.In my opinion the 5 day delay is misinterpreted by a lot of new people into thinking the that Rask is giving you an advantage, as though the stock price will be cheaper if you buy it in those 5 days. In reality what they are saying is that within the short term, it doesn’t really matter when you buy the stock, even if it goes up a little bit in those 5 days, they still think it’s worth buying at that price. (Never forget that this is a business for Rask, so if they lose money on a stock they can write it off more effectively than you can as an individual investor).Bottom line is that I found what I was after with Rask. It is a company’s investment portfolio recommendations BUT you will not find advice on individual stocks or investments.One negative is that they do not update their recommendations on all portfolio items on a monthly basis, just the movers.Do your own research and supplement it with Rask
11:17 11 Oct 19
Ive only been with RI for a couple of weeks, joining as a full member helped me get the courage to start my investing journy, something ive been thinking of starting for over 10 years… (ouch) I highly recomend Owen and his team, they have great insights and smart and easy models to make sound investing decisions. What are you waiting for?
