Thomas Hoyle

Head of Performance/Trader

Thomas began his career as an Officer in the British Army. It was here he extended his A – Level psychology knowledge by being mentored on the mind management work developed by a leading sports psychiatrist. Thomas has used this experience and expertise to successfully prepare and develop the soldiers under his command for promotion and to gain the most out of themselves when faced in high pressure environments and situations. Since leaving the military Thomas continued to increase the performance of traders here at The London Trading Group but also his independent clients.

Not only does Thomas have the skills and knowledge of a performance coach but he is also a trader himself and therefore has that added benefit of experience in the markets and thus can relate to everything the traders here and his clients go through. His role as an Officer in the Army required him to manage risk and uncertainty on nearly a daily basis. Developing these skills lead Thomas to an easy transition of becoming a trader where managing risk and uncertain is vital.

In his free time Thomas is a keen snooker player as well as a long distance runner and when he has time is an avid reader of non-fiction books.
