For over 30 years Mark has started, built and sold companies in the areas of retail, sales, marketing and loyalty programs in Australia and Asia. Mark’s company built the processing infrastructure in Hong Kong for the loyalty aspects of the world acclaimed public transit Octopus Card. He designed, set up and managed 26 credit-card reward programs for banks including ANZ, Westpac, HSBC Hong Kong, and GE Capital.
Currently his private company processes over 4 million MasterCard accounts for programs including Coles and Harvey Norman.
This extensive background gives him a unique hands-on understanding of large areas of the IT and credit industry as well as business in general. In Teaminvest Mark focuses on the sustainability of business models, competitor moats, and technological risks. When not analysing businesses, Mark can be found playing competitive tennis, trekking in Nepal or ice climbing in New Zealand.
For over 30 years Howard has started and built companies in the areas of consumer finance, education, language and mathematics in Australia, South Africa and the UK.
Howard’s extensive business background and experience means that he has the ability to hone in on the strengths and weaknesses of companies. This particularly applies to identifying their future risks, and the ability and strategies of the board and senior management to deal with them.
He regularly presents strategic business and financial workshops with a focus on CEOs and senior management of medium sized companies.
Howard is a graduate of the Harvard Owner/President Management Program and completed the Australian Institute of Company Directors’ program for company directors. He is a director of a number of companies and has won many business awards including the prestigious “Speaker of The Year Award” from The Executive Connection.
John started his 40 year career as a research mathematician with positions in major universities around the world.
After publishing two books and over 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals in mathematics, physics, and finance, John set a research objective to understand the best investment methods of Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett, John Burr Williams, Peter Lynch and other leading investors.
He personally programmed, tested, and compared over 30 different stock valuation methods in his search for the best of the best. This led to the development of Conscious Investor®, which his company sold around the world since 2000 and which is now part of Teaminvest.
It also provided the background and research for his acclaimed book The Conscious Investor and the establishment of the Conscious Investor® Fund. To balance and help focus his number crunching, John swims in the surf all year round and practises Transcendental Meditation®.

I realised that this was a much more efficient way for me to learn about the share investment I had, whether they were good or not, and what to do with them,JuliaSydney Based Member
Having a number of minds examine a particular company provides leverage to ones own efforts and lays out a new more robust perspective. Here knowledge is not only power, but is also protection against making bad decisions.BruceGold Member
