Chris Brycki is the Founder and CEO of Stockspot. A highly experienced trader, he spent most of his career as a Portfolio Manager at UBS, investing the banks’ capital and building trading models to exploit opportunities around short interest, index rebalance, risk arbitrage, share class and dual listed spreads. Mr Brycki also worked at hedge fund BlueLake Partners.

Mr Brycki created Stockspot in 2013 after realising consumers were being ripped off by layers of unfair fees – which ate 45% of managed fund returns between 2008-2013 – and compromised advice in the financial services industry.

His personal mission is to re-engage a generation of Australians who have been locked out of the market for financial advice and investments due to high fees, outdated technology and bank conflicts of interest.

Holding a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting/Finance Co-op Scholarship) from the University of NSW, Mr Brycki proved his investment savvy early, winning the ASX Share Game three years in a row while studying before dominating the JPMorgan Universities Portfolio Competition and both the UBS and JPMorgan investment banking competitions at University.
