Greg Secker was born in 1975 in Norfolk, England and is currently based in London, England. Greg is a man of various talents. He is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, international speaker, and master trader. Despite all these great roles, he considers his role as a father the greatest. Greg holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural and food sciences from the University of Nottingham.

 

Greg began his professional life at Thomas Cook Financial Services where he served as a trading technologist. His main role at the company was to develop foreign exchange trading systems. In 1998, Greg received the coveted British Telecom Award for distinguished innovations in e-commerce. He had created an online forex trading platform known as the Virtual Trading Desk.

 

Secker was hired to serve as the Vice President of Mellon Financial Corporation, a large Fortune 500 investment bank based in the United States. While working at this company, he traveled a lot to different international trading centers. He gained extensive knowledge from the financial traders. Greg launched a company, Learn to Trade, where people were educated on how to trade. In 13 years, the company has expanded to three continents and currently has offices in Australia, London, and South Africa. More than 200,000 people have been educated by the company through workshops and seminars.

 

In 2003, Greg resigned from the company to become a full-time forex trader. He started working from his living room. After some time, Greg started training people on how to trade and equipped them with great trading strategies. Greg noticed that most people struggled to start a successful trading career. There was limited trading education that was accessible at a low or no cost. Thus, people joining the trading sector with little education had high stakes. Greg wanted people to have an adequate trading education so that they can trade with ease and improve their lives.

 

Greg became a multimillionaire in his twenties. He owns other companies such as Capital Index and SmartCharts Software. In 2010, Greg Secker founded The Greg Secker Foundation to improve the quality of life around the globe.
