Quote from Shehryar Sohail

"I truly enjoy sharing my knowledge to help, guide, and educate people in finance. Financial education and awareness have become increasingly important for the financial well-being of an individual in this ever more sophisticated financial market. Sharing knowledge and ideas, communicating concepts, and inspiring conversations has always helped myself learn more about diverse perspectives, bring clarity to my ideas and thought processes, and grow as an individual. Even better is when I can educate someone such that they can make important financial decisions themselves—understanding the associated responsibility, risk, and impact of such decisions."
