Hafizzat Rusli, founder and owner of Hafizzat Rusli Bhd is a successful trader and businessman. Underneath the charming demeanour and mischievous smile, lies the dynamic mind of a trading maestro who made his first million at the age of 19.
As the son of a construction business man, Hafizzat grew up in the carefree lifestyle of Penang town. As a child, Hafizzat wanted to be “everything from an astronaut to a race car driver … anything exciting and adventurous, but never a trader”.
His foray into the stock market at age 17 was accidental. After being less than impressed with the corporate world and the lack of returns of traditional investment options, Hafizzat stumbled into the profitable, yet volatile business of commodity trading and has not looked back.
By the age of 26, he has garnered a significant amount of experience in the trading industry – almost a decade of it.
“I learnt a great deal throughout my years as a successful trader. I do not deviate from well-thought-out plans or make decisions based on emotional triggers. Every move is strategic and patient. I always know at any given moment how much risk I am dealing with”.
