About me

I'm more than 14 years in investments, and 12 years I invest in a wide range of assets: from conservative (notes and bonds, issued in the U.S.) to aggressive (derivatives, options, cryptocurrencies, etc.) instruments. It helps me to be on one side with my clients because I always propose to clients investment solutions, which I used for my investment.

In 2019 I passed the Series 65 (Uniform Investment Adviser Law Examination) exam, which was prepared by NASAA (North American Securities Administrators Association), and required by the most of states in the U.S. to propose investment advisor services (link on document).

Also, I passed all financial markets' qualification exams of the RCB (Russian central bank) (1.0 - 7.0 series).

I'm under the supervision of financial regulators in the EU and registered in an official public register of the CySEC (Cyprus security exchange commission). The record in the register is available here.
For finding me, it needs to download the file with the register, open it and press Ctrl+F. Further, input Sogonov or CN4422 in the search field. There is an "Advanced" level of qualification. It means, that I passed the exam, and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program each year.

I graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of IT, and post graduated in 2014 with a Master of Financial analysis, accounting, and audit.
