A Chat with Samuel Leach, CEO and Founder at Finance Education Company: Samuel & Co Trading

Samuel & Co Trading is the educational hub for individuals learning to trade the financial markets. I founded the business in 2012 it’s grown into one of the leading education centres for junior traders.

Alongside the live trading classes, our students can take advantage of the algorithmic software we provide. This software gives trainee traders that extra edge on the financial markets. We are pleased to have educated over 5000 individuals in financial trading from around the globe.


How did you come up with the idea for the company?

I got a lucky break working as an intern at the leading independent private bank in the UK. However, I began trading even before that at university. When my course mates saw my gains, they wanted me to teach them how to do it. I took this and my experience from the bank and created my business.

At Samuel & Co we encourage our junior traders not to be sucked into the social media hype but to put in the work.


How has the company evolved over the last couple of years?

Since our inception in 2012, we have made several strides. One is setting up an awesome Headquarters in Hertfordshire, which includes a gym and cinema room. We additionally have our own mindset coach that helps individuals with mental health problems and individuals who face mental barriers within the workplace.

The company has grown hugely over the past ten years, and we now have over 500 traders. The newest success is winning the Hertfordshire SME 2022 Businessperson of the Year award!

What can we hope to see from Samuel & Co Trading in the future?

We have got so many exciting things planned, beginning with an upcoming new series of The Real Forex Trader on YouTube. I have also launched my new degree programme where aspiring traders can complete a degree and master’s equivalent in financial trading for less than half the price and time.
