New Breed of a “Techno-Fund”
Today we’d like to introduce you to Roman Leonov.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
The road to starting a private investment club was curvy: An IT background took me to work for a few technology companies and I made connections with very talented people. Having a business degree introduced me to some like-minded business owners and a law degree exposed me to working for some equity firms and private capital investors. When I combined connections and experience it resulted in networking of team-players with similar interests and we ended up forming an investment group which evaluates and quantifies risk with technological assistance and offers predictable investment scenarios to our members and investors.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
Combing through failures and successes of competitors , navigating regulatory compliance and finding fitting talent was tough and it is still an ongoing process. Good news is that with each stride the strategies get better and results get higher. It is a dynamic environment so challenges are and will always be a part of the business.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
Specialty is in diversified investments with risk minimization through historical data computations and identification of best possible scenarios. Having access to some of the best IT and business minds combined with abilities to navigate national and international legal compliance allows for some pretty safe investment and business options that traditional “old-school” funds simply don’t have a clue of.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
Persevere, get good at dealing with your hurdles and get good and solving problems as they come in. Sometimes a look outside of the box forecasts multiple new viewpoints and new innovative solutions. Once problem-solving becomes second nature, taking on challenges that others fail at or unwilling to take on will yield great opportunities.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Constant progression and innovation through success.
What’s next for you?
Coordinate with alternative investment funds/managers, expand operations and develop technologically advanced investment opportunities.
