NAME Ryan Francois Venter

I stand at the crossroad of Finance and Computation, doing few distinct tasks, very well. These two fields blend well together and they are my passion. In the past 13 years, I have written a number of software solutions for leading companies and I have also managed substantially large portfolios for wealthy investors in the Middle East and London.

I am a Software Developer focusing on: numerical computation, data extraction, database implementation, data analysis. I have several certificates in Python, have developed several smart contracts with Solidity, and I am studying Clojure.

I am a fee based Financial Advisor with a strong background in international investment. I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Investment Advice from the Chartered Institute of Securities and Investments - London, United Kingdom, and several other certificates in finance. I only offer this service to private investors and friends.

By combining these two fields I am actively involved in the FinTech industry focusing on cryptocurrency investment initiatives as well as the decentralized smart contract revolution. I am a cryptocurrency blogger, creating smart contracts, as well as part of a consortium exploring business opportunities in this space.

You may notice that I don't use templates and that is because everything I do is uniquely crafted and tailored specifically for each client and each task.
My problem solving skills are out-of-the-box, and my life motto is to add value in whatever I do.

Apart from work: I am a family man. I do exercise daily and eat very healthily. I do not drink alcohol or smoke. I do not watch TV or read news on the Internet that has no relevance to me. I am a focused machine.

Key personality traits: enthusiastic, intelligent, productive, proficient, professional

Allow me to show you how I can help you.
