About Alvin Chow

I am not trained in finance. I graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Nanyang Technological University. Somehow I felt my non-finance background was an advantage, giving me a very fresh pair of eyes observing the financial industry. I quit my well-paying job in 2014 in exchange for my passion in this business. I have to embrace the uncertainties that come with it but it is all worthwhile. My first book, Secrets of Singapore Trading Gurus, was a bestseller in Popular and Kinokuniya.
