I started reading investing books when I was 16 (one of my business class teachers recommended me my first books about emotions, options, certificates, value investing, chart analysis).
With 19 I started trading mainly with options (max. leverage 10x), equities, and 200€. By the end of my studies I had accumulated 8500€ after 6 years and that is how I financed my Bachelor and Master Studies as a student.
Due to my passion for financial markets, my bachelor in Business Administration had a specialization in finance. My first Masters Degree is a M.A. Controlling, Accounting, and Finance from the University of Pforzheim, my second Masters is a M.Sc. Corporate Finance and Accounting from the University of Kraków. I have a Financial Modeling & Valuation Analyst Certificate from the CFI Institute and work in restructuring with focus in operational & financial restructuring, as also debt advisory. During my studies, I prepared multiple equity research papers and participated in Corporate Valuation competitions. I do weekly fundamental analyses of financials and markets to keep my skillset sharp.
