Professor Cornelius Ward (aka Professor)
Being raised by a father who was a true entrepreneur (having ran multiple businesses) and being mentored by a well sought after international financier, who introduced me to the world of finance by way of working with Initial Public Offerings (IPO) and Mergers & Acquisitions, I never had much of a choice when it came to becoming a trader, an investor, and an entrepreneur. I've been in the finance industry since 1997 and I've had the honor of working with Merrill Lynch (now Merrill Edge), Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, and the privilege of friendships with traders on the trade floor. From 2002 to 2012, I enjoyed my position as the Founder/CEO of a very successful insurance brokerage firm and my tenure as an instructor for those entering the world of trading in one or more of the four major markets—Stocks, Options, Futures, and Forex. I also enjoyed overseeing the Forex Club for one of the largest international trading academies. I hope to debunk the fears many people have about this industry by bringing awareness and simplicity to trading in a way that promotes continued success. Financial freedom for the average person has and will always be my pursuit. My father and mentor lived it and I hope to "Pay It Forward".
