Mental and emotional attributes are better predictors of trading success than wealth, race, gender or expensive schools. Technical skills can be taught, hunger cannot

(Just ask Gordon Gekko)

"There weren’t many traders that looked like me"

There’s no shortage of hungry and capable young people with a keen eye and strong interest in money. Talent doesn’t discriminate, but unfortunately the finance industry does. Without the social capital of family connections, Ivy League degrees, preppy sports experience and exclusive fraternity membership to access interviews (much less finance careers), many exceptional candidates are passed over. For the lucky few who break into the front office, their experience is marred by micro-aggressions and being the ‘only’ in a new and often unwelcoming environment. 


Familiar with this story, Troy Prince founded Wall Street Bound to bring more diverse talent into the front offices of "Wall Street". Mental flexibility, strategic thinking, the ability to problem solve and self-discipline are core traits that ultimately determine one’s success as a trader or investor. Unlike these traits, technical knowledge can be taught. Don’t take our word for it - check out the legendary Turtle Trading story of 1983
