James Helliwell Portrait

Alongside his own career in fund management, James co-manages the Academy with Lex and presents his highly regarded analysis and market insights exclusively via the LVDTA Trading Club.

Trading started as a hobby for James during university, but quickly became an obsession and it wasn’t long before his career would cross paths with Lex to develop under his vast hedge fund expertise. Having established an impressive track record of his own working across multiple asset classes with some of the world’s leading investors, James joined forces with Lex at the Academy to teach their proven methodology to aspiring traders and investors.

Away from the Academy, James is responsible managing money as Chief Investment Officer for a range of equity and fixed income funds where he employs the very techniques that he teaches.
