“Invast Global is different. It’s a global brokerage, but it feels more like a tech company. The R&D team I run has free reign to build what we think is useful. We employ the best minds, the best problem solvers – and we build solutions for our clients. Having studied Aeronautical Engineering (Space) and Computer Science, I never thought I would be building things in financial markets. But I love it.”
