Our Executive Team

“To deliver the finest training, exceptional support, and give traders their best results” (James Edward, Founder)

James Edward, founder & CEO

A ten year veteran of the Royal Marines and later a bodyguard to Royalty, billionaire's & celebrities, James came to the forex market with discipline, determination, and a desire to attain the wealth he’d seen his clients enjoying. Since his first introduction to trading in 2003, James has amassed tens of thousands of hours immersed in live markets, and gained a comprehensive understanding of the requisite skills for forex trading success. Trading live markets since 2006, James has established a reputation as a renowned and respected expert in this field.

Seeing the disparity between what is advertised to new traders and what is usually achieved by them, James stepped out with a mission to build a hub for currency traders to help them regain control of their own forex accounts through accurate education that delivers trading breakthroughs in record time, with less struggle and more reward.

Always a contrarian, James attributes his success to taking the road less travelled. “If you want to be in the top 1%, you have to do what only 1% of people do – avoid the crowd at all costs”. James established Complete Currency Trader in 2012 to provide elite training to an exclusive group of highly motivated traders.

James’s affable personality, expert knowledge, notoriety for getting results, and steadfast dedication to his clients, has secured his position as one of the most trustworthy, liked, and in demand authorities in the industry.
