Umblogging.com is a tool for those who want to understand better the world of finance and investing. I graduated in 2010 when the world was still recovering from the financial crisis. There was (and still is not) very little trust in financial institutions. My first job was at an online broker where DIY investors could trade any kind of securities from leveraged FX and CFDs to stocks and ETF.
I have witnessed the damage that leverage can to to a retail account, the toughness of day trading and the success of value and dividend investors with a longer time-frame in their investing strategy.
I firmly believe that investing should be easy and accessible. The financial industry however made it a profession to complicate things in order to charge higher fees.
