Mr Aceves has been investing in the financial markets for over two decades and became involved in the financial services industry as a retail stockbroker in 2002 . His speciality was individual stocks, with an emphasis on superior service for his clients, which included being avaliable to speak to his clients daily at 5.a.m. for a 6:30 a.m. opening. After 7 years, he decided to become truly independent and focus his energy on writing and consulting former and new clients. By choosing this platform, he can focus more on helping as many people as possible without having to deal with the "sales driven" culture that exists at many brokerage firms today.
