Boaz Shoshan
When he trained to become a financial adviser, Boaz Shoshan earned a black mark against his name for asking too many questions. Having become disillusioned with the financial services industry, he joined Southbank Investment Research in 2017. The questions haven’t stopped. Having ventured down many financial rabbit holes, Boaz now writes for Capital & Conflict, London Investment Alert, and is the managing editor of Zero Hour Alert. From gold to violins, bitcoin to cigars, and whisky to wine, Boaz’s investing interests are often to be found outside the financial system – despite being a qualified financial adviser.
