Founder of Learn to Trade, the Greg Secker Foundation and author of Financial Freedom Through FOREX, retired investor Greg Secker devotes his time these days to teaching people how to set and reach their personal wealth goals.
Educated in Agriculture and Food Services, Secker’s aptitude and interest in computers helped him land a job at Thomas Cook Financial Services. While at the firm, he developed an innovative online currency trading software application. It was from the specialized investment knowledge that Secker learned while programming the system that his career as an investor was launched.
After seeing the profits that others were making using the futures trading system, Secker borrowed £5000, which he quickly parlayed into £60,000. The trading techniques that he developed on his own were quite effective. By the time he was in his early twenties, he was a multi-millionaire.
The Greg Secker Foundation was started to fulfill his vision of teaching young people the life skills that would result in their being in charge of their futures. The foundation’s flagship Youth Leadership Summit featured high-profile speakers that discussed wealth, leadership, entrepreneurship and relationships to promote the foundation’s purpose. The success of the program motivated the launching of a subsequent summit in South Africa.
Secker’s philanthropic mission has evolved from circumstances that have shaped and expanded his original goals. The foundation’s recent work with rebuilding a Philippines community that was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan helped him to develop an appreciation for the people of the country.
He developed a compassion for the people of the Philippines that was shaped by his realization of a fit between the financial freedom principles that he was teaching in Europe and the US and the needs of the people that he was helping in the Phillipines.
Holding the belief that everyone should have access to the life-changing tools that he offers, Greg Secker uses his international speaking engagements to teach people across the globe how to generate wealth and in the process how to regain control of their lives.
