Vittorio De Angelis spent most of his career in finance, first trading equity derivatives in London at JP Morgan, Dresdner and Bank of America, before moving to Hong Kong as a derivatives broker. Now, he is the co-founder of Velotrade, a digital platform that allows corporates to get fast funding and investors to provide the much needed liquidity while earning attractive returns.
Topics we’ll cover:
– Fintech and the Future of Financing
– How Trade Finance Can Help Entrepreneurs, SMEs and E-commerce Companies
– Sacrificing Stability and Success For Risk and Reward
– Ways for Corporates to Access Funding
Vittorio decided to quit his “grown-up job” in 2017 to work on Velotrade full-time. As a father of 5, the decision was not taken lightly, but sometimes in life you see opportunities that cannot be turned down. His career developed in a world with too much liquidity and few investment opportunities, and once he realised how difficult it is for the corporate world to access funding through traditional financial institutions, he decided to create Velotrade as a bridge between the two worlds.
