According to prnewswire, Stephen M. Hicks graduated from King’s College, garnering a degree in Business Administration, and he would further his education by attending New York City’s, Fordham University, earning his MBA. While working for a small hedge fund in New York City, Mr. Hicks was informed that the principal would be returning to his home in Australia. This presented a unique opportunity for him, and, with the approval of the principal, he began his own fund while still working in his original capacity. As the head of Southridge Capital, it is essential that Mr. Hicks maximize his time, and he credits his ability to do so, as a key factor to his continued success. Always one to stay abreast of upcoming financial trends, he has become increasingly excited about the prospects surrounding cryptocurrency, as well as the budding market for marijuana. When asked about a business idea that he would be willing to give away, Mr. Hicks suggested a podcast that focuses on cryptocurrency, as it could produce a massive audience and client-base.
