I had worked in engineering for most of my career, and recently retired from the business I owned for 15 years. I realised property and investing could provide an easier way of life. So having built up a suitable portfolio, I decided to embark on this lifestyle full time.
I am British, and have my main residence in the UK, but can be seen for part of the year at my villa in Southern Spain.
Having experience in buying and selling base metals through my business, I gravitated towards using instruments to trade virtually. These past few years I have gained more knowledge about this very interesting sector.
I am an independent financial consultant and a writer. I teach at the University of Paris, written on derivatives and corporate governance as an academic and for TheStreet.Com.
