Greg Secker Learn to Trade Founder

Our Founder Greg Secker has built a name for himself as a master trader, entrepreneur, philanthropist and international trader icon. A multi-millionaire by his mid twenties, Greg is passionate about showing as many people as possible the way to reach financial freedom.

An idea is born

Greg Secker’s career started as a Trading technologist at Thomas Cook Financial Services, conceiving and developing trading systems to expose profit making opportunities in the lucrative foreign exchange market. In the mid-nineties he developed one of the first ever real-time Foreign Exchange trading systems – aptly named “The Virtual Trading Desk” which went on to win many awards. Working alongside some of the most astute traders in the world, his career quickly soared and within only two short years he became a vice president of Mellon Financial Corporation (NYSE:BNYMEL) then a major Fortune 500 investment bank at the tender age of 25. Greg decided to leave and set up a trading floor from his home. With interest from family and friends, Greg started to share the ‘secrets’ of his trading success with others. Before he knew it, more and more people started to camp out at his house trading in any corner they could find!

Using the very same trading strategies discovered on his travels around international trading floors, Greg’s personal trading account grew to the extent where it allowed him to make the choice to leave or stay in his career.

Trade your way out of a job

Passionate about sharing his ‘secrets’ even further to help more people achieve financial freedom, Greg established the now internationally renowned trader coaching company, Learn to Trade, in 2003. Since 2003, over 200,000 people have attended Learn to Trade’s seminars and the company has grown internationally throughout Europe, South Africa and Australia.

Where’s Greg Today

Greg is regularly called into the media for his expert opinion on market direction. He has spoken on most major market channels including CNBC and Bloomberg. Now an internationally recognised speaker, Greg is regularly invited to speak alongside well renowned personalities such as T Harv Eker (Secrets of the Millionaire Mind) and Tony Blair (Prime Minister, Great Britain 1997-2007). Greg’s most recent speaking engagements include teaching at the Anthony Robbins Wealth Mastery programme and The National Achievers Congress in Asia, both receiving outstanding reviews. He personally owns one of the highest performing private trading floors (Live Trading Floor Ltd), which employs full time traders using the very same strategies Greg learned on his travels around the trading floors of the world, which he now teaches worldwide. A keen Polo player, father and philanthropist, he founded the The Greg Secker Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation committed to positively improving the quality of life of children around the world.
