Troy is a 20 year+ wall street veteran with extensive buy & Sell side trading experience at premier US & International firms and near 5 years as an angel investor in Vietnam. Noting the persistent lack of diversity in the front offices of wall street and the abundance of hungry and available urban talent, he has had the idea for Wall Street Bound for over 15 years. Troy has spent significant time abroad having lived and worked in 5 countries, speaks 4 languages and brings the full breadth of his experience home with him in his mission to connect typically overlooked urban talent with the capital markets and investment opportunity.
