High Heeled Traders

Me with fave high heels from Via Uno

Charmel Delos Santos is a private trader, mother of three, systems analyst and ex-beauty queen wannabe.

Charmel grew up in the Philippines. The second of 3 sisters, she had strong women that influenced much of her life, as her mother and six aunts are mostly teachers. As a young woman, she worked in the family business exporting handicrafts made by women in her village. She was active in civic activities organizing and modelling in fashion shows, which prompted her to join Binibining Pilipinas in 1998 (Miss Philippines). She received her bachelor’s in international studies from Miriam College in Manila while also taking up computer programming. She started her career as a business analyst and worked in information technology for 15 years. After investing in Australian and New Zealand real estate, Santos traded shares and options with little success but continued to work through the lessons, finally getting breakthrough after  taking advanced  trading courses and workshops with Van Tharp Institute and changing her trading style to “trade as a woman”.

Her current focus is protecting assets and generating income using stocks and options.   She is based in Sydney and currently mentors women investors via the great internet and  investing programs in Qatar and the Philippines and speaks in public and corporate events.
