Nadir holds a MSc. in Management with a specialization in finance from HEC Paris and worked in investment banking in London and Singapore for over 10 years. He is also a photographer and does design work. He decided to write the book when he realized the gap of understanding between the industry he comes from – investment banking – and friends who worked in creative industries. They did not have solid financial literacy. Yet everyone needs to make investment decisions. Nadir wanted to make the complex and unnecessarily confusing subject of investing simple and accessible.
