My name is Jeffrey Derose, I am 25 years old, and I have been working in the financial industry for the past six years. I am currently a trader at a hedge fund. I have been studying the stock market since I was 16. My father introduced it to me as a kid but I really got into the market when I joined the National Academy of Finance. Although doing well in the program was important my best lessons came from the books I have read, research I have done, and actually investing in the markets. I hope Absolute Growth can help make us all better investors and thank you for visiting. Have a profitable day!
