Ashley Jessen was one of the first 10 traders to open a CFD account when they first launched in Australia, having originally traded stocks and options. Ashley is an experienced trader with specialised knowledge in the trading and educational fields.
Ashley has also taught tens of thousands of everyday traders how to plan, construct, and implement effective trading systems and get back to the basics. He has also personally coached over 400 traders 1 on 1 how to get the most out of their trading methods and mindset.
Making the transition to CFDs and trading full time was simple and together with 3 trading colleagues, Ashley set up and managed a trading office in Bondi Junction. It was at this stage Ashley learned what it’s like to eat, sleep, breathe, and live the markets on a full-time basis.
Whilst not trading, Ashley has been instrumental in helping grow some of Australia’s largest CFD, FX & education trading companies including Metashare International, HomeTrader, CMC Markets, MF Global, LCG Markets and Invast, from Sales & marketing manager to Chief Operating Officer at ACY Securities.
Ashley is also a passionate golfer and currently plays off a handicap of 5. Strangely enough, both golf and CFDs earned him a 1st class trip to London and then on to the South of France to go head-to-head with the owner of one of the most successful CFD companies in the world.
Sitting 1 under through the first 8 holes and holding a 7-shot lead, Ashley unfortunately got beaten on the 18th hole earning his boss a much-deserved and well-fought victory. Many a hard luck story was told that night over dinner in the city of Monaco.
