Greg’s career began in Thomas Cook Financial services. He then moved over to the foreign exchange business to run a brand new business entitled the Virtual Trading Desk. VTD was the first online real-time Forex trading platform, allowing customers to receive real-time quotes for foreign exchange transactions.

His career quickly progressed and he went on to be a Vice President at Mellon Financial Corporation, then a major Fortune 500 investment bank in the United States. Here he was lucky enough to work with some of the very best traders in the world. Using the very same trading strategies discovered on international trading floors, Greg’s personal trading account grew to the extent where he decided to leave Mellon and set up a trading floor from his home. From then, to just three short months later, Learn to Trade was born.

Now an internationally recognised speaker, Greg is regularly invited to speak alongside renowned personalities such as Sir Richard Branson, Robert Kiyosaki, Dr De Martini, Anthony Robbins and many more.



Having had such abundant success so early on in his life, giving back has always been a key priority for Greg. He has in the past supported various charity initiatives including the Royal Princes chosen causes, Tusk and the Child Bereavement Trust –  with Prince William playing in the company polo team at Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber’s home in 2010.


In 2010 The Greg Secker Foundation was formed to positively improve the quality of life for people around the world. Focusing on education, life skills and leadership initiatives, the foundation strives to equip people with the essential building blocks of life.


In January, 2018, the Foundation officially opened a new village of 100 homes and facilities in Lemery, Philippines.
