  1. China branch was hot in 2017. But now it was drop from the group. 
  2. New CEO annual remuneration is $144K. Is he one of the board member or just a employee?
  3. Could not find the share holding information. Anyone has insight?  Idea
  4. Clive is Non-executive Chairman .... so he is passive now?
  5. Where is Sean? He was 8VIC CEO isn't it? 

So does this change means that the 2 founders of 8IH were kick out?
Lol.


Above is just a personal opinion.  Smile

I think you might miss something. 8I Holdings Limited is the parent of 8VIC and still active: https://www.8iholdings.com/
Ken Chee and Clive Tan are employed in this holding. The China activities are held in this holding (not sure why it's not under 8VIC), as well as the property business, the Hidden Champions Fund and some other activities.

Sean Seah was indeed 8VIC CEO and has now disappeared from all written materials. There is also no announcement of his contract being terminated. It reminds me a bit of the disappearance of KB Kee. Maybe Sean Seah is also gone?
Sean Sean left awhile already

I read somewhere that there is a change in Chairman of 8IH. It seems like he’s stepping down or something. Would it affect 8IH shares? I bought some a while back just to try-try so I’m just wondering if I should hold, buy more or cut loss.

No change in 8IH board members. 8IH board

They use 3R investing strategy... so do you think that 8IH and/or 8VIC meet the 3R?

Confused Idea

Obviously its not. If it is, then what they have been preaching or teaching are just a heap of rubbish.
Anyway no matter how nice it in theory is not so practicable or executable in the real world.
Too many unknown factors.
Whether 8I can turnaround is also a big question mark now.

Chance upon a Fund Management site, they use 3R since day one.

RE: 8I Holdings Limited (ASX:8IH)
I found this blog with a bunch of postings concerning 8I and their businesses, all written in december 2018. It reconstructs the Digimatic dealings once again, but also offers thoughts on 8I's promotional activities and the upcoming Wealthpark project. I believe these blog posts may add to the discussion we already had in this forum:

https://sincereinvesting.wordpress.com/

Note: I am not the blogger and do not know who it is. I was just trying to find some information about the Value Investing Summit, that 8I organized in Kuala Lumpur and found this blog. By the way: if someone here attended the Value Investing Summit, I would be grateful to hear what stock tips were given there.

Thanks for sharing - It is very detailed & must have taken a lot of effort.

Unfortunately, the author has only provided analysis of 8i(& related biz). Given this type of details, I wld be interested to read up his/her analysis of other listed co too !

I agree. Considering the high level analysis and writing, I am guessing this might be an experienced blogger, who wants to isolate the 8I writings on a separate url. He/she is mentioning the risk of being censored by 8I in one of the postings.

Maybe the underlying question here: why spend so much  time and effort on a company on which many agree is not investable and which can also not be shorted? I can not answer for the blogger, but I've spend time analysing 8I myself and like to share my own motivation. I once attended a promotional event of 8I myself and consider their marketing and sales methods unethical. They use the 'value investing' label as part of a larger, distasteful scheme that promises to get rich quick. 

I did not attend 8I's course, but I heard that the course content is very shallow. Surely, the courses enjoy a certain success, but most praise originates from the enthusiasm of the attendees immediately afterwards. Not from their investing results in the long term. The lecturers, in particular Ken Chee, are able to inject a certain energy to their audience using presentation gimmicks. They also manipulate group psychology. We can see the attendees all wearing the same t-shirt and there is a reward system with rings for those that reach a 1 mln sgd value of their portfolio. (As a side note: it is unclear who audits this and whether the starting capital of the portfolio's is taken into account). 

The courses are very expensive. I am afraid that some attendees consider the courses as a solution to their financial worries, while the high fee may actually drive them into deeper trouble. By contributing to this forum, I hope the awareness of 8I's practices increases and the warning signals may reach potential course attendees before they sign up. I am guessing the blogger has a similar motivation.
