Trader & Active Investor Performance Coaching

Trading and Active Investing are high performance activities, they share a number of attributes common to other high performance activities: The external battle against an opponent or rival, in this case the markets; the internal battle against one’s self; plus the constant pressure from interaction with the broader environment.


Our ‘Performance Improvement Coaching Programme’ helps traders and active investors to succeed in the external battle against the markets, by focusing on and winning the internal battle against one’s self, whilst learning to exist and thrive within the complex and uncertain environment they face. Through the coaching we look to help people by holding up a virtual mirror to themselves, so that they can become more self-aware, we then look to help them to improve and enhance their practice and to develop more optimal behaviours as risk-takers.

Through our coaching work we aim to help people overcome their own particular challenges, whilst firing up their motivation, and helping them to develop greater confidence and self-belief. We also look to help them become more aware of the natural and learned aspects of human behaviour which both help and hinder their work and effect their decision-making, whilst all the time aiming to help them improve how they manage the critical balance between the rational and emotional aspects of risk-taking.
