So many people have been hindered from getting into investing for various reasons. One of the most common reasons why people never bother to get started is because they are not sure of how to go about it and how they can receive guidance.
This is why we decided to interview one of the top players in the investment industry and this is none other than Roger Scott, the Head Trader at WealthPress. Roger Scott has over 25 years of experience as a commodity broker and hedge fund trader.
Below, he shares details about getting started with investing with the help of podcasts.
