Greg is a 42-year-old entrepreneur and philanthropist. This English businessman spent most of his early years in Norfolk. He is a graduate of the University of Nottingham, with Bachelors in Agricultural and Food Sciences.
Secker’s most notable accomplishments in his career before financial trading are his time at Thomas Cook Financial Services, where he developed systems for foreign exchange trading, and the years he spent at Mellon Financial Corporation.
Secker retired from formal employment in his late twenties and has become the face of financial trading seminars in England and beyond. He has established a number of companies, such as Learn to Trade, and written books about financial trading and how to get started. His commitment to enlightening new forex traders began when he set up his first forex trading company after leaving his job at Mellion Financial Corporation. Since then, Secker has spoken to beginners in numerous seminars around the world, often drawing from his experiences to show how it is possible to start and make it in forex trading.
In addition to his life as an educator, Secker is also popular as a philanthropist. Through his foundation, Greg Secker Foundation, he runs a number of initiatives such as leadership summits for youths as young as 13 years. His foundation has also earned him the title of a flying trader because of one of his projects to trade from a helicopter and raise money for his humanitarian projects.
Greg Secker’s growth in the financial market has not come without a fair share of criticism. Some feel that teaching financial trading is not as important as Secker makes it look like, and he is more of a marketer than a trader. However, anybody who understands how volatile financial instruments are, and the level of risk on the trading floor, knows it is paramount to get into the industry with as much skill as possible. It is for this reason that Greg Secker explains in his seminars that only those with potential and the ability to use the strategies he provides, at an individual level, rip maximum benefits on the trading floor. His courses cover important elements of forex trading such as exchange rates and risk management.
