Greg Secker, who was born on February 18, 1975, is an entrepreneur, trader, international speaker, and a philanthropist. He established the Knowledge to Action Group in 2003, which involves several companies whose goal is to work together and teach people how they could excel in the field of trading to improve their own lives. Greg Secker initially worked for Thomas Cook Financial Services, and then decided to move into foreign exchange and created the Virtual Trading Desk, an online forex trading platform that allows traders to get quotations for forex transaction and is acting in real time. Then, he soon became Mellon Financial Corporation’s vice president, and opportunities for more travel and experiences came in, which resulted in his trading knowledge to grow tremendously. In just three months, he managed to open Learn to Trade, a company who focuses in trading education, and it has expanded ever since – to Australia, to the United Kingdom, and to South Africa. Through their sponsored workshops and seminars, Learn to Trade has educated more than 200,000 people worldwide.
According to Greg Secker, what inspired him to create this kind of business is the struggle that he is witnessing from people who are starting their career in trading. He have seen that those who enter the field only has little knowledge on how trading works. He wanted to help them, so they could have a chance to improve their lives at a very low risk. He also revealed how he is making money from trading – people should learn when to invest and how to invest. Greg Secker moved out of the corporate world when he was 27, and decided to trade at home where he managed to make tons of fortune. He is very thankful of platforms like Learn to Trade, because it has helped him achieve his financial goals. Through this platform, decent money can be earned within three to six months, given that someone already has the knowledge on how trading works. He keeps a fraction of his earnings as savings, and then puts the remaining majority back into investing so that it would give him more money. It inspired his friends and family, witnessing how he becomes more financially stable, and it has given him the idea to teach them how to use the Learn to Trade platform. Today, Greg Secker keeps on educating a lot of people on how to trade, aiming to keep people financially stable and financially independent.
