How Christopher Atteo Sees Investment

February 15, 2017
 
Almost since the beginning, Christopher Atteo has worked hard to make a life and a career for himself. That is not much of an exaggeration, since Chris’ father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and has been unable to walk or work for a living since Chris was nine. As the oldest of four kids, he felt that it was his duty to make sure the family was taken care of, so even as a kid, he ran a paper route and even worked as a cook and a cashier when he was a kid, so that he could help out the family.

Following graduation from West Hollow Middle and High School in West Islip, New York, Chris Atteo took some courses in finance and business at SUNY-Farmingdale. After that, he tested for and obtained licenses in Series 7 and Series 63, so that he could become an investment broker. From 1995-1999, Chris Atteo worked with several small-tier financial firms before moving on to what he saw as the big time, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter, where he plied his trade for about a year.

For more than two decades now, Christopher Atteo has worked with a great many firms. It is no exaggeration to say that he has traded billions of shares and handled tens of millions of share orders for individuals and institutions in that time. Based on that experience, he has acquired a keen understanding of the global equity markets and derivatives from both a technical and fundamental analysis perspective and he has read a lot about investing and the greatest investors, to learn even more.
