Chief Investor & Co-Founder
Emmet’s passion is the stock market. Emmet had his personal portfolio professionally audited and achieved a 24% annual return for more than a decade – that’s over triple what the S&P 500 returned. Emmet’s first stock was Dell Computers, but it's not his favourite anymore! That honor goes to Tesla, who are producing user-centric products for a global customer base. As companies go, Tesla’s journey has only begun. New cars and solar energy solutions will continue to keep this investment as future-relevant as they come.
COO & Co-Founder
John’s mission in life is to achieve simplicity through technology. He believes investing grows long-term wealth and wants MyWallSt.com to create the simplest technology solution so that investing can be for everyone. John’s first stock was ELAN pharmaceuticals but his favourite is Amazon. He considers whether companies will be bigger and better by the time his 5-year-old daughter attends college. Amazon continually grow their business ambitions to remain a stand out market leader. John believes they will do so for decades to come.
Head of MWS Labs
Alejandro’s favourite stock is Shopify. He likes the simplicity of the platform, especially the checkout flow for customers. He thinks that Shopify is becoming the standard in e-commerce and the company still has space for growth.
Chief Product Officer
Ales’s favourite stock is Pure Storage. He likes how they harness technology to perfect the smallest of details and this reminds him of another company he admires, Apple.
Fabian’s favourite stock is Workday. As a data scientist, he likes that the company invests a large part of its revenue into research and development. Fabian believes that over time the constant innovation resulting from this focus will give Workday an edge over its larger competitors.
Ion's favourite stock is PayPal. Being the largest online payment processors in the world and offering a high level of security makes Ion believe it's worth investing in this stock. In his opinion, the pleasure of buying online was never so fast, easy and secure. Ion made this decision based on the knowledge gained from the Learn by MyWallSt app that helped him with onboarding into investing and stocks.
Head of Content & Publishing
James’ favourite stock is Take-Two Interactive. Although not an avid gamer, he can still remember how impressive ‘Grand Theft Auto’ was the first time he played it. More than fifteen years later, Take-Two continues to redefine the boundaries of virtual entertainment.
Jamie’s favorite stock is with chocolate makers Lindt & Sprüngli, or Lindt. They were suggested by a friend after discovering Jamie’s love of the chocolate, and now, as a shareholder, he happily receives a chocolate care package every year. He admires their ability to produce a high quality product at affordable prices. He also really loves chocolate.
Chief Financial Officer
Johnny’s favourite stock is Atlassian. Although not a techie (obviously), he appreciates how valuable their products are for software developers and project managers. Atlassian has also made some bold acquisitions over the years and the launch of Stride in 2017 saw them taking on Slack.
John’s favourite stock is Netflix. The company has continuously proven its ability to develop its product to stay relevant in changing times and he’s looking forward to seeing what the next evolution is. He really hopes they use their platform to tackle the issue in live sports streaming, to make it cheaper and more accessible.
Chief Marketing Officer
John’s first stock was Under Armour. As an avid sports fan, John has watched Under Armour shoot to prominence in recent years across a range of his favourite sports. John loves to know that he’s not just a customer of Under Armour, but an investor as well and looks forward to many more years of impressive growth ahead.
Laoise’s favourite stock is Shopify. Having used various website development platforms for creative side projects the exceptional experience offered by Shop reinforced her belief in the long-term prospects of the brand. It’s one of the stocks she has re-invested in since first purchase.
Customer Experience Specialist
Luke’s favourite stock is Disney. His love for Disney stems from both a deep sense of nostalgia and his excitement for the company’s future. Luke believes that The Walt Disney Company’s consistent innovation and content creation will ensure their place as a market leader for many years to come. Owning a part of a company that helped shape his childhood is something Luke holds dear!
Megan’s first stock was Nike. Growing up playing tennis in Nike apparel, she has always loved the brand and believes it is a bedrock stock that she will continue to invest in for a long time. She is originally from Charlotte, North Carolina and has been with MyWallSt since the beginning of 2018.
User Acquisition Manager
Niall’s favourite stock is Tesla. With his interest in the automotive industry combined with his admiration for CEO Elon Musk, it was an easy decision. Niall believes that Tesla will grow and dominate the automotive industry in the near future and he also looks forward to the day he can become a customer.
Petar's favourite stock is iRobot. He believes that autonomous robots will someday be a vital part of our everyday lives. He sees robots improving our lives by providing solutions to accessibility issues, rescue efforts, and protecting us from harmful environments. And robots are fun.
Roberto’s first stock was SolarCity. He likes the idea that he can own a part of a company who cares about the Planet and that the world could be improved by using sustainable power sources. When SolarCity was acquired by Tesla, this strengthened his belief in the company, as he admires Elon Musk explorations and initiatives.
Rory’s first stock was The Walt Disney Company. He wanted his first stock to be one he could pass on to his children. He believes that Disney has a fantastic portfolio of intellectual property and that the movies he watched as a kid will still have a place in the world decades from now.

Sammy believes that the financial industry can and will go through major changes in the coming years, driven by IT, a prospect that excites her!
Victor’s favorite stock is Ericsson. The main reasons being their 5G leadership, growth over the last few years and their great company values (human, impactful & empowering). Reading the Learn by MyWallSt app encouraged Victor to want to start investing. What he loves most about working with MyWallSt is the awesome team, the new and exciting tasks to work on and the nice office.
