The future of financial services in Namibia. What the experts talked about at Grand Capital financial forum in Windhoek
On March 2nd, Grand Capital Financial Business Expo, a major investment management expo forum took place in Windhoek. The event was organized by Grand Capital, an international broker with the presence in 11 countries around the world. For quite a long time, the company's mission has been to raise financial literacy, so that people in every corner of the world can have access to education, learn to manage money and use them to generate profit. Furthermore, Grand Capital provides services that allow to receive passive income — copy trading and investment portfolios that include stock market instruments.
The business forum was held at the NIPAM head office. Several hundred people came to listen to the foreign experts and learn what’s more profitable to invest in right now. The organizers remarked on the strong motivation of the visitors, while the latter was surprised by the scale of the event.
Sergey Kozlovsky, Vice President of Grand Capital:
“We see a great promise in Namibia in terms of the growing financial services market. People are looking for new opportunities, eager to learn. And we are glad to be able to provide all that to them. Currently, as part of our program to raise financial literacy, we provide online and on-site education free of charge. Future traders will learn the basics of financial markets from renowned teachers. Top students will receive a certificate from an international company.”
Among the speakers at the event were international investment management experts from Europe, Russia, and Africa:
- Goutam Das (Europe, Russia) — investment manager, professional trader, finance management coach;
- Helena E. K. Nyau (Namibia) — business coordinator and financial expert.
- Sergey Kozlovsky (Russia) — Vice President at Grand Capital, financial analyst and financial market trading teacher.
Names of these experts are already well-known to Namibian traders — you could have caught them during their African business tour in 2018. Now they came back at the invitation of their partners to host one more seminar, help open representative offices and train the staff. Now everyone can visit the office to receive free education. Our teachers will be glad to help you start trading in currency or stock market independently or under the guidance of an expert.
Goutam Das, Investment Advisor at Grand Capital:
“Today, thanks to the Internet, most of us can access financial markets right from our homes. This means that each and every person, regardless of their sex, age or place of residence, can boot up their computer and start earning. At Grand Capital seminars, we offer advice on efficient financial management and teach how to profit from Forex trading.”
Things that were discussed at the expo, in one way or another, concern each of us — where to find a source of steady income, what to invest in, how to make the most of the opportunities offered by modern financial markets.
We invite everyone to Grand Capital Financial Business Expo in South Africa that will take place on March 9th at 11:00 AM in Witpoortjie recreational center, 824 Vermooten Rd, Princess, Roodepoort, Johannesburg.

Our latest interview round-up features the winners of 459th and 460th rounds of Drag Trade. Both are retired, that’s why trading is a hobby and at the same time an important source of income. They told us how they deal with emotions and work on their mistakes. Read more in the round-up.
Irina Khokhlova, winner of the 459th round of Drag Trade, received real $200
- Preferred trading instruments: EUR/USD, GBP/JPY
- Trading strategy: scalping
- Indicators: Alligator and Fractals by Bill Williams
My name is Irina Khokhklova. I’m retired and I like participating in various competitions, including Forex contests. With time, I realized that financial markets trading allows to earn honest profit without taking time from your domestic chores. I want to achieve financial well-being and become a philanthropist thanks to trading.
The most memorable trades are those after which I have enough patience not to immediately open an opposite position and think the situation through. For example, after my last unsuccessful trade in Drag Trade I really wanted to open a short-term opposite position, but I thought it through, decided not to repeat my own mistakes and in the end took the first place in the contest.
When choosing a broker, I pay attention to the company’s experience, interesting contests and reviews. After I considered all criteria, I chose Grand Capital.
I managed to win in Drag Trade because the pair I traded was highly volatile. Another positive factor is the fast and smooth operation of Grand Capital’s trading terminal. What I want to say to beginners is that age is not an obstacle to trading, you just have to dare!
Alexei Butolin, winner of the 460th round of Drag Trade, received real $200
- Trading experience: 2 years
- Preferred instruments: major currency pairs: EUR/USD, GBP/USD
- Strategies: technical analysis
- Indicators: RSI and MACD
I’m 60 and retired, I love Forex trading, fishing and construction. I haven’t specifically studied trading anywhere, but I spend a lot of time on chart and trade analysis. As time goes by, my attitude towards trading is changing, I become more rational and don’t let my emotions take over. I don’t have colossal goals in financial markets, but I really want to evolve in this field and earn a stable addition to my pension!
About the most memorable trade
About a year ago I was trading aggressively, without Stop Loss. I remember being only 10–12 pips away from blowing the whole deposit, but the market reversed and my balanced went up by 500%.
About anxiety and choosing a broker
Whenever I need to calm down, I shut off my computer and take a walk in the woods. A great way to get my thoughts together.
I chose Grand Capital because everything about it suited my — reviews, trading conditions, tech support. Contests are my passion, for me it’s the thrill and opportunity to prove what I’m capable of.
In this round of Drag Trade I used trend trading, I let my position gain momentum. Emotionally it went smoothly for me. I guess I was ready for it!
My advice for beginners is to choose trading style and strategy you’re comfortable with, don’t get greedy and let yourself relax!

Our most recent contest winners shared their experience of learning Forex trading. Learn about this and much more from our new interview round-up.
Ahmed Mohamed Eltayeb, Saudi Arabia, winner of 239th round of Rally Trade, received a no-deposit bonus of $500
My name is Mohamed Eltayeb, I’m 33 and I started trading in 2013. My goal isn’t unlike that of the majority of traders — to become rich and successful. I’m constantly practicing and learning, and it helps me with anxiety when trading. I chose Grand Capital because this company offers nice conditions and doesn’t scam its clients. My advice for all beginners is to learn new trading strategies, adhere to them and carefully follow changes of the instrument’s price.
Muhammad Tariq, Pakistan, winner of 72nd round of Future Trade, received a no-deposit bonus of $1,000
I’m 30, I’m from Pakistan, and I’m an electrician. My interests essentially boil down to my profession and getting very good at it. Trading is also a hobby. I’ve been reading up on it a lot on social media, and when I felt like I knew enough, I started trading, while continuing to watch educational videos online. My most successful trade involved FDAX index, thanks to which I managed to win this contest, while the least successful trade was with USD/ZAR. In trading I use technical analysis, trend lines and trade on daily and weekly charts.
I was introduced to Grand Capital thanks to word of mouth — a friend told me you had fast execution, and I wanted to try a trading contest to see for myself. He was not wrong!
It’s difficult for me to give advice to beginners since I’ve not been in Forex that long myself, but I can say that you have to spend enough time on trading and choose long-term strategies to succeed.
Zouhaier Albouchi, winner of 458th round of Drag Trade, received real $200
- Trading experience: 3 years
- Preferred instruments: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/ZAR
- Trading strategies: Fibonacci Retracements, Stochastic Oscillator, Moving Averages.
I’m 40 and I work in agriculture, Forex trading is my hobby. I want to earn extra income trading to secure a decent living. My most successful trade was the one which won this contest — it allowed me to earn both money and experience. To get rid of anxiety when trading, I carefully choose an entry point, and patiently wait watch the market’s behavior. A broker has to inspire confidence, that’s why I chose Grand Capital. I like participating in Grand Capital contests because I can test my strategies. This wasn’t an easy round, I couldn’t wait for the results to learn who would come first. I recommend practicing on demo accounts and in demo contests.
