[I’ve been extremely busy with dog sitting and extended tax deadlines this week, so Sublime Investing is filling in with some additional content for me. This is a bit of a sales pitch… but with a free option that you might find useful. I haven’t evaluated their service, so don’t view this as an endorsement. For transparency sake, I don’t make any money if you decide to sign up or not.]
Simplicity Is The Ultimate Sophistication
We created Sublime Trading, a community mentoring professionals and business owners to build investment portfolios around their busy lifestyles without compromising on time and profit, as a byproduct of our own success in the financial markets.
Our long-term strategies have returned over 410% since January 2017 and in excess of 30% per annum over the last 10 years. These are the strategies we share with our Phoenix members, the name we have given to our premium community.
My co-founders, Kola Gbadamasi and Jonathan Morgan, and I came together in 2018 with our combined 35+ years of investing and tech experience to form Sublime Trading. We have since had 100s of professionals come through our doors, playing an integral role in helping them work towards reaching their desired wealth target before retirement by learning and implementing our long-term philosophy.
What we learned is that the fog and mysticism this industry is shrouded in dissipates and the route to success becomes clearer when we have a simple system to follow. We have done all the hard work and so our members can get to their end goal, confidently investing to make consistent returns to reach their desired wealth target before retirement as seamlessly as possible. We are helping our members reignite lost dreams which instead become realistic goals in achievable deadlines.
The Investor Journey
Here is what is interesting. The investor journey is highly predictable, and when the problems are predictable, the solutions are predictable as well.
Let’s start with the unsophisticated investor. Typically no education or process. Gambler. Regularly faced with blown accounts. Regularly buys into get-rich-quick schemes. Left with nothing more than broken dreams. Lacks accountability and often blames others.
Next up is the traditional investor. Smart, plays the long game, limited in their knowledge. Use methods that work but are slow, time-consuming, and not up-to-date. Never in complete control of their money. Forced to sit through stressful bear markets such as in 2000 and 2008, meaning years of no growth waiting for a recovery. A basic understanding and use of compound growth.
Finally, the Phoenix investor, the term we have created for our members who use proven old-school techniques, combined with cutting-edge tech and modern-day investment vehicles. Creates a portfolio that compounds significantly. Moves effortlessly between the natural cycles of the market. Complete control over their money. Takes compound growth to a whole new level.
Investors Fall Into 2 Groups
The only barometer of success is profit. Our experience tells us that people generally fall into 2 groups:
- The unsophisticated inventor that struggles for consistency and focus.
- The sophisticated investor that consistently compounds their profit. This group can be broken down further into the traditional investor and the Phoenix investor explained above.
Group A is characterized by the following 3 problems they commonly face:
- Problem 1 – A Lack of financial literacy
They lack clarity in the specific long-term processes needed whilst correctly leveraging modern-day investment opportunities available for us as busy everyday people to build wealth between now and retirement.
- Problem 2 – A challenge to build trust
This is primarily based on buying from unqualified and questionable educators with no REAL results and giving into get-rich-quick schemes. People must slow down, learn to be accountable for their choices and adopt proven long-term wealth creation strategies.
- Problem 3 – A financial shortfall at retirement
A simple exercise people often fail to do is calculate what ROI their investments need to grow by annually to reach their desired lump sum by retirement. Thus, current savings and investments are not growing at a rate that will see them hit their desired wealth target by or before retirement due to problem 1, a lack of financial literacy.
It is a serious one. A high percentage of the population will not have enough to live on at retirement with no means to getting on track! Many will fall short of their individual wealth retirement goals. We believe many have the right intentions but do not know where to start or get easily derailed and end up down the rabbit hole of get-rich-quick schemes.
For example, official broker figures confirm that up to 95% of their client go on to blow their accounts, losing significant sums in the process. A sad reality that has a far-reaching impact not just on the individual but on society as a whole. It does not have to be like this. The good news is that with the right choices going forward, you can easily and quickly see a change in results.
The Sublime Trading Solution
We have discovered that the smoothest way to the financial control of one’s investments is the perfect blend of learning proven old-school investment techniques which utilise cutting-edge tech and broker solutions. We call this The Phoenix Methodology. The confusion and clutter is replaced with 3 extremely desirable payoffs!
- Rise up – Step above the crowd and elevate to the next level.
No more poor choices. Accountability starts here. In a murky education space, you will do right by yourself and your loved ones by turning your back on quack educators peddling get rich-quick-schemes. Instead, you will adopt the proven long-term principles of sound investing, allowing you to live a fulfilling life whilst simultaneously growing your hard-earned money.
Invest savvy – Take the driver’s seat and be the boss of your own portfolio.
Complete control over your money resulting in the life-changing benefits of the power of compound growth. With control comes a clear plan of action. With a clear plan of action comes peace of mind on reaching, even exceeding, your desired wealth target by retirement.
Break the financial illiteracy loop – Be the catalyst that leaves a legacy for generations to come.
‘Generational wealth’ and ‘financial literacy’ become more than buzzwords. You will adopt and execute proven investment principles that are right for us as everyday people. This knowledge is now part of your heritage that will be passed on from generation to generation, breaking the endless loop of financial illiteracy. This is your legacy!

We understand that the savvy are led by a hunger for expert knowledge. For investors who rise up, invest smart, and break the loop, we have developed a structured mentoring programme that simultaneously streamlines learning and implementation, shortening the route to creating a portfolio that performs consistently well.
The methodology is based on the 5 Cs:
- Clarity – Understand the exact processes. Everything else is noise.

Accelerate The Journey
Investing success has little to do with your background. I have a background in photography and TEFL, Kola in media and property and Jonathan is a software engineer. We have never worked in the city or for an institution. We do not have degrees related to finance or economics. None of that matters.
What counts is being in the right position financially to start (NEWS FLASH: yes you need a decent size starting pot to invest!), learning the specific investment techniques that are right for us as busy everyday people (financial literacy!) and resilience in abundance to see this through to the very end.
Good investing is simple but not easy. The best techniques are simple to learn but growing wealth requires patience which is why so many fall short. The internet promised riches yesterday and people repeatedly fall for the gimmicks. Instead, do this properly, believe in yourself that you can do this, embrace compound growth and you will be handsomely rewarded with a generational changing portfolio.
So regardless of your background, we have combined the elements above to create a supportive yet challenging, high-performance environment for investors that accelerates their journey to rising up, investing savvy and ultimately breaking the financial illiteracy loop.
I came together with Kola and Jonathan to form Sublime Trading with a single mission in mind: To lead the revolution in simplifying good financial literacy, developing smart investors that use a repeatable system to reach their desired wealth target before retirement.
We have grand plans. We must think big else what is the point. And as a collective, we are powerful, people tend to forget that, as we live in a world where our media channels actively promote division and separation.
Our vision for Sublime Trading is to help our members create long-term financial wealth, which they can leave as their legacies made through a transfer of knowledge, wealth and power away from the institutions into the hands of the savvy everyday person.
How The Training Works
We believe that it is the role of every budding investor to lead the way in breaking the mould of generational financial illiteracy replacing it with a new cycle of expert knowledge and generational wealth. The training is structured for you to achieve that.
