COACH

I'm a coach at Trader Genius. My interest in investing in the stock market started when I was thirteen years old when my Father told me and my brothers that he would double however much money we made in one year. So I researched some stocks and bought a couple, I did well and he was happy to pay me. Ever since then I was hooked on investing and have never stopped doing it. I Studied Business Administration at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam, where my major was in Financial Management. My interest in investing made me decide to do an internship at a bank and write a thesis on the performance of socially responsible companies and their performance with mergers and acquisitions compared to other companies on the stock market. After university, I went to work for my family's company for a couple of years. However, investing was still where my passion was and so at one point, I decided to quit and just focus on investing. Now I’m an investor who does Coaching, Day and Swing Trading.
