What’s the idea behind your company?
Eight years ago, I retired at the age of 45 as a money manager and started a hobby to turn my trading and investing strategies into software that was easy to understand for all levels of retail traders of forex, futures, stocks, and now even crypto. This hobby has now turned into a serious multimillion-dollar business with over 10,000 users based in the USA. So, I am no longer retired. Recently, we were awarded Top Algo trading software 2022 by the USA Financial Services Review Magazine.
How did you begin your career journey? Do you have some advice for beginners?
As this started out as a hobby, I was experienced (around 15 years at that time) but very passionate, as most people are about their hobbies. So, my advice for any business owner is to have the same passion for your business as you do for your hobbies, and this will drive success in your business.
What’s the goal of your company?
Our goal now that I have moved to the UAE is to give traders and investors in this region the same unfair advantage in the markets that my clients have in the USA, not just by the use of our trading software but by being educated in the simple rules for the strategies that they represent.
How important are employees’ energy levels to the success of your company?
My employees feed off my passion and energy, so I lead by example; they simply feel the same energy and passion. As long as my example has that high energy, I have seen that my employees have the same.
What keeps your company moving forward even during challenges?
Strong work ethic by me that empowers the teams. Innovation throughout the team to help growth. My team is free to express thoughts on ways to improve processes, products, and the business in general.
How do you think technology is leading to changes in businesses? Do you feel Is it helping your company grow?
Technology is at the heart of our business, and my development team is always pushing to the limits and beyond. They have a saying to me, “If I can write it, they can code it.” We always try to push the envelope, and we invent it if there is no solution.
How is your company adapting to digitalization?
We started in digitization but now look at neural network learning and AI to advance our software.
Do you use innovative ideas to be unique?
Absolutely. As mentioned earlier, we invent logic and systems that don’t exist to ensure our software users have an edge in the financial markets.

Would you like to say anything else to our viewers?
Believe that keeping trading and investing strategies “simple and repeatable” is key to wealth growth. It is important not to overthink and overanalyze and to follow a simple set of rules. If these rules for the strategy are not met, then that is the reason NOT to take a trade or make an investment.
