How did the company come about?
I was working at Goldman Sachs as a derivatives trader. I found that in my personal life I was becoming the go-to person for friends and family who had a common issue – they wanted advice on how to invest their money, but they didn’t have the amount of capital required to get a professional to help them.
Together with three colleagues, I left Goldman to found Scalable Capital, alongside a professor who is a world-renowned expert in the fields of risk management and financial econometric. We believed technology could be used to create an investment service that could address all the problems we saw with existing offerings.
