Biography

Dr. Victor Chukwuemeka gained a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of London and followed this with a doctorate in European economics many years later. Upon graduation, he began his career as a trader in financial instruments, mainly in the Foreign Exchange market. He progressed to become a successful trader before being asked to run a Money-Market desk encompassing a variety of different instruments including Commercial Paper, Bonds, Interest Rate Options, Swaps, Options, Equities and much more. Dr. Victor Chukwuemeka, having received an econometrics forecasting certificate from the University of Oxford, combined this credential with his self-taught mastery of econometric theoretical and practical concepts during his PhD, enabling him to deliver optimal results for his clients.

He followed on by working as a freelance economist, mainly serving the US hedge funds. He continued to use his forecasting techniques by working as a consultant for a Real Estate firm in the city of London, providing growth forecasts and explanations for European Asset and Fund managers and international banks. His intellectual curiosity sought to provide answers as to how state-of-the-art techniques can improve his forecasting accuracy, and this has progressed to an advanced stage. It was at this stage he realised that the research he provides should not only be valuable for professional fund and asset managers, but for the everyday trader who uses trading apps, especially in the real estate sector.

Dr. Chukwuemeka has written numerous economic journals and articles for magazines and Think Tanks in the United Kingdom and the United States and also frequently collaborates with the European Union about their economic plans, particularly that of full integration.

Whilst he was still at school, European politicians decided to integrate eleven European countries and adopt a common currency, the Euro, and a single interest rate. Dr. Chukwuemeka thought that this concept would become unworkable in times of economic downturns especially after negative economic shocks, and promised himself that he would prove this one day. His thinking was that in times of economic prosperity, counties can grow and prosper, however, when economic shocks happen and a downturn follows, these countries become rigid and inflexible, and their ability to adjust and return to prosperity becomes very difficult, turning what would ordinarily be a temporary shock into a permanent one. This has largely been proved to be accurate with the inflexibility of some European countries rendering their trading nations unable to enjoy the prosperity of the previous era. Dr. Chukwuemeka’s foresight as a 16-year-old became largely true 30 years later and his doctorate backs up the thoughts he had on this issue as a young boy.

Dr. Chukwuemeka has worked as a UK government economist, and he has consulted for the Ministry of Justice, the Department for Transport and the Cabinet Office where he has brought suggested policies to be brought in front of parliament. Dr. Chukwuemeka also spends some of his time teaching in schools for free. His is a mentor to young people who are looking to pursue a university degree in Economics and statistical subjects and a career in finance. It was while he was at university studying for his PhD that he was asked to provide some core teaching and mentoring to Master’s degree students. Dr. Chukwuemeka enjoys teaching when he can find the time.

In summary, Dr. Victor Chukwuemeka’s illustrious career trajectory reflects a profound dedication to the field of economics and finance. From his early days as a successful trader to his current roles as a consultant, writer, and educator, he has consistently demonstrated a commitment to excellence and innovation. His foresight and expertise have not only shaped his own successes but have also contributed significantly to the broader understanding of economic dynamics, particularly within the European context. Dr. Chukwuemeka’s ongoing mentorship and advocacy for young aspiring economists underscore his passion for sharing knowledge and nurturing talent, ensuring a legacy that extends far beyond his own achievements.
