Gone are the days when experience would come with the passage of time, and considered to be the ultimate key of unlimited success in any market. A subtle change that might lead to an evolution of, perhaps, the entire future, can be observed as an increasing number of firms, allowing “younger” traders to be in charge of almost all important aspects of their business, in general.
The fresh talent and an even newer perspective that these vigorous entrepreneurs carry has been seen impacting the financial services quite effectively. Technology companies such as IEX Group and SoFi are among the few to have been started by people who have undoubtedly shaken the way financial markets function at a comparatively very young age.
So, let’s have a look at the top ten young traders/dealers/bankers who really carved a niche by virtue of their outstanding abilities and capabilities:-
– Vladimir Tenev
A 28 year old owner of a mobile app company, known as Robinhood, is the first one to offer commission free stock trading through the given digital medium. Founded back in 2013, the company, till date, has been able to raise up to $66 million of funding from many investors, out of which one is Google.
– Ryan Smith
Ryan Smith was only twenty-nine years old when he executed his vision of offering the most effective technical chops to startups to help Wall Street utilize block chain technology. Heading this venture under the name of chain.com, this website single-handedly gathered up to $150 million within the past two years of its existence.
– Darren Dixon
