Harry Harrison’s proficiency in finance played an integral role in earning him the venerable ranking he holds today. Harrison, a man of valuable insight, has long been a member of his niche. During his emerging adulthood, Harrison harnessed his intrigue for business which later prompted him to pursue a collegiate career at Cambridge University. During this juncture, Harrison unearthed his “strong curiosity about how companies work.” As an attempt to find an answer to his burning inquiry, Harrison delved into the macroeconomics and dynamics of business. As a result, he discovered what “forces make markets functions.”
Fascinated by his discoveries, Harrison continued to seek out insights. Before too long, Harrison had unknowingly evolved into a keen entrepreneur. Above all else, his penchant and knack for investment and trading became evident. Rather than ignore the obvious, Harrison embraced his entrepreneurial appetite, subsequently plunging into the corporate world with his unbridled ambition in tow. Over the past three decades, Harrison’s acquired a wealth of knowledge. As a result, he’s become an aficionado of financial technology, private equity, and venture capital. His vast expertise landed him an executive role at Barclays Non-Core, a London-based investment firm. After 20 years with the company, BCN closed its doors to pursue grander endeavors.
These days, Harrison is a stay-at-home dad, a role he assumes most proudly. While his children are at school, Harrison offers counseling services to otherwise naive entrepreneurs. The entrepreneur he enjoys spending time with most is his wife, Amy Nauiokas. Amy, the founder of an investment advisory firm, inspires Harrison to explore the unknown. In fact, he attributes his desire to innovate to his forward-thinking spouse. According to Harrison, ingenuity is at the heart of all entrepreneurial success stories. Harrison enjoys pioneering ideas so much that he’s dubbed himself “a disrupter of order.”
