Alex grew up a shrewd saver of his job and pocket money, and eventually made his first investment at the age of 12, buying a few Apple shares with his father’s brokerage account.

Hooked ever since, Alex began advising friends and relatives on stock ideas and investment strategies, going on to study Management and Financial Studies in Wales. He now operates his own boutique wealth management advisory firm.
