Proprietary Trader /
Global Macro Investment Manager
Today’s global financial environment is tough. Someone could argue that it is more complicated than it used to be in the past therefore, professionals are required to have multiple skills, as well as a wide knowledge of the markets and current affairs.
My extensive, academic education has provided me with the framework that allows me to acquire and develop strong, professional skills and expertise and also helps me to continuously evolve and improve, both as a professional and as an individual.
In my professional career, I have gained experience in different roles that provided me with a great insight about the investment management industry.
I began my career in private banking, working as an investments consultant and later I moved into asset management where I was involved with portfolio management and advising High Net Worth’s, focusing heavily on a Global Macro approach and tactical asset allocation.
Later, I had the opportunity to work in the hedge fund industry, as a proprietary trader. That role helped me gain strong trading skills and understand Order Flow and Auction Market Theory principles.
My overall professional experience and trading skills have helped me to develop a unique Global Macro approach that is based on intermarket relationships and the economic fundamentals that are driving prices. Overall, my investment philosophy has a systematic global macro bias, a mix of statistical and intermarket cross asset analysis, with a view of current geopolitical issues.
Furthermore, myself and my business partners founded and created an online trading academy, the FotisTradingAcademy.com, where we offer a high quality course on Fundamentals and Global Macro strategies. Our weekly analysis and trading ideas have helped our clients to generate consistent, profitable results.
