Financial Risk and Financial markets made simple.

I am Alex

Hi. Thanks for taking the time to read about me. Not really sure why you'd want to do that, but I'm flattered. Actually, I think you might be better of reading one of my books, newspaper articles or website contributions.

Everyone takes on some form of Financial Risk during their lives. This might be buying a house or car, getting married or dabbling in the markets. But how many people really understand what risks they are taking on. It is my mission to make risk more easily understood, so you can make better decisions.
