Greg is a well-known philanthropist, trading master, and international speaker. He was born on the 18th of February 1975. Before Secker founded The Virtual Trading Desk, he used to work for the financial services of Thomas Cook. The virtual trading desk was the first platform of this type to initiate an online real-time Forex trading services.
Mr. Secker later became the Vice President of the Mellon Financial Corporation a vast investment bank with its main offices based in the United States. His role as a Vice President at the Fortune bank enabled him to have more travels and chances to attend many trade fairs internationally.
The experience Mr. Greg Secker got from his role at the bank gave him the idea to start up a school known as Learn to trade that dealt with teaching individuals, firms, and companies on trading education. The company is also recognized as a global leader in the provision of trading education services.
Greg used to work for companies that used to generate money for him, but he wanted to be the one teaching and showing the people the skills on how to make money. As early as at the age of 27 years, he was able to leave the corporate world and started trading at the comfort of his home through the help of platforms such as Learn to trade.
Within the first three to six months of working at home, Greg was making more money as compared to what he used to make when he worked in the corporate world. Greg’s first customers were his family members, relatives, and friends who has seen his dedication for the startup. People started asking him how he managed to achieve much on his own and through his explanation, they became his students at Learn to trade.
Mr. Secker believes that most of his success has been initiated by his family and close friends who aided by giving him ideas and plans on what to venture in. He also learned a lot from the people he met while on his trips and from the talks he had with them.
