Reality Of Trading Professionally – Show Notes

In episode 187 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I sit down with James Whelan and Daniel Moss in Sydney.

Both work for VFS Group, a private wealth management fund.

I wanted to discuss with them what it's like to trade in a firm of the sort and what you can expect as well if you ever decide to trade professionally.

In 2014, VFS Group was admitted to the BRW Top 100 Fast Starter list. In 2015, Danny was named NSW Business Chamber Young Executive of the year for the Sydney region.
