Javed Khan, the founder of JKMT states that “The graft is often brought into us as teens, and into young adulthood we are told to work as hard as we can to provide for ourselves, for families and a week’s holiday once a year.” Javed Khan is only 22 years old, but clearly has a wise head on his shoulders.
JKMT has grown exponentially since Javed’s initial dreams, and Javed now owns a multi million dollar portfolio since managing to master the art of trading, with a specific focus in the NFX markets.
Javed was born and bred in the streets of Hackney in the East End of London, with his father being a cab driver, and having lost three friends by 18 to knife crime, he clearly came from humble beginnings. His love for the entrepreneurial lifestyle stemmed from his father, and he knew that there was something more to life than simply working a 9 to 5 job.
While studying a BTec in science, he had originally planned to go to University and work a conventional 9 to 5 job. However, after watching “The Wolf of Wall Street” that all changed for Javed. His passion for trading grew from there.
While working in Dominos delivering pizzas, Javed was able to save £1,000 to put into the markets, but lost it all in a matter of hours. Despite this initial failure, he knew he was destined for success if he kept putting his mind to work.
His addiction to the world of trading grew further, and he invested £10,000 from his father’s savings account, and lost this too. It was at this point that Javed knew he needed to succeed, and needed to succeed fast. With each pay cheque he received, he put some money into his trading account. He began to finally see some success, and within a matter of months he was able to completely transform his level of success and restore his father’s belief in him. By the end of 2016, Javed had cleared all of his debt to his father.
After this initial burst of success, Javed was able to make over £352,000 in profit in his first year of trading. Since then, Javed has moved to Dubai with the goal of improving his knowledge further, but also to share his knowledge and experience with others.
What’s next for Javed beyond his success to date? Well, he wants to transition his success in the foreign exchange markets to real estate investment too. Javed states that “The sky’s the limit, but there are footsteps on the moon”, and he attributes his success to just simply taking that leap of faith back in 2016.
In 2020, Javed was able to buy a Bentley Continental GT, and also a 4 bedroom villa in Dubai. He has made quite the turn around from his humble beginnings a mere 5 years ago, from almost dropping out of College to becoming a wholly successful trader and teacher.
