He went from being a poor student of a dissolved state to a world-acclaimed trader-millionaire. As a result, his analytic abilities generate million dollars of revenue.

Erik grew up in Novosibirsk in a resettler family from Germany. Since he was a boy, he showed logical thinking and an interest in finance. Once a 12-year boy found an interesting newspaper article on exchange trading. After that trading became a dream of his life.

After a school, he went to Novosibirsk Academy of Economy and Management. During his studying, he together with his teachers founded a small brokerage firm. Securities were its activity of the first order. However, the first project was not so successful. Knowledge he gained at the university was not enough for such a project. Erik began his self-study.

Talent and hard work made him a rising star.

1998 – after a market crash he had been working as a portfolio manager of Polar-Invest for 3 years;
2001 – 32-year E. Nayman was invited to newly founded bank Millennium Capital as an executive director.
2002 – Nayman went to Ukrsotsbank, one of the largest Ukrainian banks. He was expected to establish a department of investment management and run it.

Since 2011 he has been a managing partner in Capital Times, an international investment company.

He did not leave his self-education. In 2007 he defended a doctoral dissertation. Leading financial periodicals gladly publish his analytical articles. However today Erik Nayman is more known as an active educator in the investment field.
