Alasdair started his career as a stockbroker in 1970 on the London Stock Exchange. In those days, trainees learned everything: from making the tea, to corporate finance, to evaluating and dealing in equities and bonds. They learned rapidly through experience about things as diverse as mining shares and general economics. It was excellent training, and within nine years Alasdair had risen to become senior partner of his firm.
Subsequently, Alasdair held positions at director level in investment management, and worked as a mutual fund manager. He also worked at a bank in Guernsey as an executive director.
For most of his 40 years in the finance industry, Alasdair has been de-mystifying macro-economic events for his investing clients. The accumulation of this experience has convinced him that unsound monetary policies are the most destructive weapon governments use against the common man. Accordingly, his mission is to educate and inform the public in layman’s terms what governments do with money and how to protect themselves from the consequences.

My background is in Sociology, I have redirected my focus to economics and finance. I followed conventional wisdom led by Gurus and professionals that made their living off of selling advice. After being completely wiped out, and realizing family is the most important aspect of life. I'm using my background to build wealth over the long term.
I want to help others with low income and the working class to realize wealth is not an overnight phenomenon, but takes time and patience. That even a small amount of money invested today in stable companies that are the foundations of our society can grow over time. That wealth is not something exclusive to a select few; but a goal anyone can achieve, ultimately shaping their legacy.
