Oliver L. Velez is internationally known for founding and growing Pristine Capital Holdings, Inc. (a firm he started out of his New York City basement apartment) into one of the country’s premier educational institutions for investors and self-directed, retail traders. After serving as Pristine’s Chairman and CEO for 12 years, Mr. Velez decided to turn his full attention to the professional trading arena. His new training program called Trade for Life™, which includes a 2-day seminar and 5-day Live Trading Session with Mr. Velez himself, is designed to train traders to go beyond retail to trade the markets professionally.
Today, Mr. Velez runs Velez Capital Management, LLC (“VCM”), one of the country’s fastest growing private equity trading firms. VCM currently employs 260 professional traders who have been meticulously trained to trade his own personal account. Mr. Velez financially backs each one of his traders, absorbing all their losses, while sharing in the gains with the trader. Mr. Velez’ vision is to
grow his professional team of traders to more than 1,000 globally over the next 3 years. For the past 19 years, he has espoused the revolutionary idea that “micro trading,” like “micro banking” has
the potential to serve as a solution to many of the world’s social ills. Through VCM and the Velez Family Foundation, Mr. Velez will be opening up trading divisions and training centers in Beijing, Vietnam, Moscow and Mexico City. More major cities throughout the world will be added in the future.
