Klava, the character we came up with, is a brave girl with a sincere desire to become a real investor. She guides the reader through the chapters, explains how assets work, reveals the meaning of frightening abbreviations and vague concepts.

The author invites the reader to engage in reflection right on the pages of the book. For this purpose, studio designers came up with spacious margins, useful interactive activities and cute checklists.
