Hedge fund manager, Alpesh started trading at the age of 12, with money borrowed from his aunt. He continued trading throughout school and University; finessing at Oxford University his trading strategies.

Whilst trading, he started teaching, first small groups, then audiences in the thousands around the world, from the UK to US to China to even Guatemala - made known as a global educator and trader through his training books - The Mind of a Trader and Trading Online.

Soon thereafter institutions such as Goldman Sachs, Barclays, American Express, Charles Schwab, E*Trade, TD Waterhouse, paid Alpesh to educate their customers.

Bloomberg TV offered him his own show after seeing him on a CNN interview talking with passion about education and trading; the Financial Times asked him to write a column in the paper teaching people to trade. Alpesh has written 200 columns for the Financial Times and 18 books to help people improve their trading. His books were so popular they are translated into 8 languages and one, Trading Online, even outsold Harry Potter on Amazon for a while!

Soon Alpesh won a competition in the Financial Times to predict the FTSE 100 over a 12 month period, coming within 0.5% of the final value.

Oxford University elected him a Visiting Fellow on Business and Industry and he lectured on trading.

Unsurprisingly Alpesh set up his own asset management company and hedge fund after friends and family asked him to manage their money for them. The company currently manages money for pension funds and high net individuals.

So it made sense for him, having launched his hedge fund, to launch a private equity fund - after all dealmaking and entrepreneurship were taking up more of his time and thanks to media appearances his networks expanding exponentially.

To this day Alpesh remains in more high demand than ever, appearing weekly on the BBC, Reuters, CNBC with his views on the markets, and being flown around the world to speak to audiences from India to Thailand, China, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Consequently, given the huge demand for his trading education and with a business to run, Alpesh set up online education courses to meet demand.
