Give us a little insight on what you do.
Provide and advice clients on trading ideas, subsequently, we buy/sell stocks for them.
Given a million dollars on the spot, what would be the first thing you buy?
I’d buy a trust fund to eventually gain another million. And, I’ve spilt some of what I got to several charities.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Running my own asset management firm with a few friends.
What makes you laugh the hardest?
Dry and vulgar British humour.
What did your father teach you about love and relationship?
Whatever happens, life goes on.
What was the craziest thing you’ve ever had to do as a stockbroker?
Working in the stock market daily is already a crazy thing. So, it’s safe to say that the job itself is crazy.
Are you an optimist, pessimist or a realist?
I’d have to say that I am placed in between an optimist and a realist.
If you could change one thing about the way you were raised, what would it be?
Don’t think I would change a thing about the way I was raised. Just happy with how things worked out for me eventually.
