About me

About the project.

I started getting serious about trading the day I discovered that there were companies willing to fund retail traders with their capital back in 2015.

At that moment I realized this: these companies are making money both when a trader is profitable and when he is not, this business model is strong! it can only grow from here, surely; and so it went from a handful of companies, that I knew of, to over 30 that I’m aware of today.

And I also realized that the path to becoming a funded trader would be a very interesting for me, personally, and perhaps for other people as well: so I started this website as a personal blog, and a live trading journal, which rapidly grew into a full comparison app, and today I help traders obtaining funding thanks to my strategy FOMO Killer.

I fly the nest

I fly the nest

In my quest for “something new” I fly the nest and move to Mallorca, to work as sound technician / entertainer.
Not an easy task for a shy grumpy cat like me who didn’t speak a word of spanish nor english as yet.
Then Lanzarote.. then Mallorca again as assistant Chief Entertainer aka MiniBoss.
(maaan I could stretch back then!)

London calling

London calling

I move to a larger island in my quest for “something bigger” and in London I’m fortunate enough (after paying my dues for a good couple of years of course) to become the audio visual assistant manager at The Royal Society : best job ever!

So many buttons!

I co-fund Gooder Ltd

In my quest for “something harder” I co-found the first 100% carbon neutral chauffeur agency in UK driving purely Tesla model S.
Surely being a taxi driver in London won’t be complicated?! Exactly!

A new Funded-Trader

A new Funded-Trader

In my quest for “global conquer” I translate the website in 5 languages; with 50K+ visitors a year it’s time to restyle and reprogram my blog: Fundsfinder now features and compares in detail over 20 companies that offer capital to retail traders, and my strategy FOMO Killer is proving to be truly helpful.
It’s true what they say: it’s all about the journey! And mine certainly hasn’t been boring this far.

Nomad Trader

In my quest for .. no seriously it’s time to chill now!
FOMO Killer is a fully automatic strategy trading in my behalf day and night, I live in my sustainable little farmhouse in the countryside, and every now and then I travel around the globe to visit other funded traders, whom I’m fortunate to call friends.
Funded-trader.com is a brilliant self-contained project: I have partnered up with no-profits projects and I use it as a platform for spreading high quality financial education.
Wish me luck!
