Are you aware of someone who started learning Algorithmic Trading to manage their portfolio better? Let us share this amazing story of EPATian Lorenzo with you.

An Engineer by education, who joined his family’s restaurant business, then created his own venture in the Real Estate domain, we introduce you to Lorenzo Fusini. We connected with Lorenzo and this is his story!

Here’s our discussion with Lorenzo!

Hi Lorenzo, tell us about yourself

Hi! I’m Lorenzo Fusini and I’m from Italy. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Pisa. And Kitesurfing is my hobby.

From being a partner in the Restaurant business to have your own Real Estate firm - how did Algorithmic Trading come into your life?

My parents had been running a company in the restaurant and tourism industry. Immediately after my studies, I joined the family business. While I was working there with my father, I started a new business in the Real Estate domain, developing and building small residential and commercial properties.

My first stint with Algo Trading was some years ago when I had the need to handle my income. After a long search, I realized that EPAT was what I needed.

How are you applying the knowledge gained at EPAT professionally?

Machine Learning was my priority when I made the decision to join EPAT. Now I’m still improving my skills in Artificial Intelligence and, in the meanwhile, I’m running my quantitative strategies on Python for my own Portfolio. Python and Machine Learning are great tools to work with, not just for the financial domain, but a lot of aspects in our life.

What features of EPAT did you like?

For me, EPAT was a great experience. I really appreciated the EPATian resource section. It’s really helpful to further explore some topics, involved in Algo and Quantitative Trading.

I’m really grateful to my Support Manager, Niraj Nachane for all the support. A special thanks to Nitin Aggarwal for all the questions he has clarified, all my doubts he has resolved and for the technical assistance.

What would be your message to all the people who aspire to be Algo Traders?

EPAT is surely a great starting point for joining the Algorithmic Trading Domain. It’s a perfect tool for anyone who aims to create a career in this fast-growing domain, or for everyone else, in some cases, if someone wants to handle their own wealth independently.

QuantInsti has a fantastic career cell. Moreover, Machine Learning would be the concept of starting a new business for anyone who has a passion for technology.

All the best!
