ABOUT ME

Hi, thanks for visiting my website.  My name is Dr Krissy Jones and I’m a wife, mother of three and a serial, award winning entrepreneur who has founded and managed projects in retail, forex and media. I hold a Doctorate Degree in Business Administration, specializing in strategy & innovation. I am also an experienced forex trader and founder of several different companies including a successful retail company with over $11m annual turnover, a regulated international forex broker, a proprietary trading firm, a regulated cryptocurrency exchange and FX options platform.  I have also created a forex services media site called The Forex Library, where I am an author of educational articles and news related to forex trading. 

My career started in the care sector where I worked as the youngest ever care home manager at age 21, following this I next trained as a teacher, where I worked as a lecturer in a higher education college. I then went on to set up and grow two successful training companies, one of which I founded with a $2,000 loan and grew to the value of $11m in under two years.  The company employed over 50 people and was in the Sunday Times best company to work for list. 

After this, I became involved in the forex industry through an interest in investing. I am a self taught trader who has been trading forex since 2017, with a particular interest in fundamental and technical analysis. This has enabled me to make successful trading decisions and pass my knowledge and trading ideas onto others through articles that I write for a forex news site.  My experiences in trading and as a business woman have led me to the position I am in today as a successful entrepreneur with business interests in a number of fields.  However, I have had many ups and downs and experienced many struggles to get there, but these have only made me stronger and given me the ability to get through any hard times by using mistakes as a positive learning tool.

I am a philanthropist with a particular passion in helping families and children who are living in poverty. I am on the board of two charities, the founder of The Trilogy Trust Foundation and volunteer at St Francis Centre, LA. I also fundraise for and sponsor families and children living in poverty. In England I used to be a voluntary mentor for The Princes Trust where I enjoyed supporting young people with their new business ventures.

Outside of work, I enjoy fashion, fitness and socializing! I live in Los Angeles County with my husband, three children, and Taffy our dog.

COMPANIES

Forex Broker- I have founded a regulated forex broker that provides forex trading to retail and commercial clients across the world. The company operates worldwide with offices in Asia, London and Puerto Rico. It also has a MSB (Money Service Business) License for the US and Canada to operate in a variety of financial sectors.  

Forex Trader and Author- I am an experienced forex trader who enjoys investing in CFD trading of various instruments. I also work as an author for The Forex Library, which is a forex news and education site. The Forex Library delivers up to the minute breaking news, real time coverage of events that effect the forex markets and market analysis to forex traders who trade commodities, crypto, indices, forex and equities. The vision from its founders was to also create an extensive, news worthy platform for Forex traders which caters to all types of traders, from beginners to experts. 

Cryptocurrency Exchange- I created a fully licensed cryptocurrency exchange that allows retail and commercial clients to buy, sell, exchange and swap over 500 cryptocurrencies at extremely competitive rates. Users can also store, send and receive funds safely and securely in regulated custody. Customers have access to numerous globally renowned and highly liquid exchanges and trading platforms, ensuring the most attractive pricing options that offer a competitive edge. 

FX Options- I established a regulated FX quick options/HFX broker that allows retail clients to trade FX, commodities, cryptocurrencies and stocks in a fast paced, fun environment where you can predict market direction to earn up to 95% in 60 seconds!

Proprietary Trading- I founded a proprietary trading firm that allows retail traders to access funded accounts of up to $1m. Clients must pass two stages of audition following set trading rules. 

Retail- In 2018, I started a luxury furniture retailer which sells unique, high quality furniture with Italian, British and French influences. The company also provides interior design services. This came from my love of interior design and beautiful furniture. The company has a current turnover of over $11m and is planning to become an international luxury lifestyle brand with a flagship store.

PHILANTHROPY

Voluntary Work- I have a particular passion for helping people living in poverty and a strong belief that no person should ever go hungry. I volunteer for St Francis Centre in LA on a weekly basis which is a non-profit organization helping to fight hunger in Los Angeles. They source and acquire food and other products and distribute to needy people.
As a volunteer I help with food distribution both on the road and at food pantry’s. This involves helping maintain crowd control and social distancing, greeting clients, packing food boxes for distribution, restocking and giving out food to clients. 

Family Adoption- Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, my family and I sponsor around 10-20 families across Los Angeles who are living in poverty or are unhoused. At Thanksgiving, we donate food boxes so they can enjoy a hot Turkey dinner and give out cash donations. We then obtain their Christmas wish lists for themselves and their children. 
At Christmas, we purchase each family member gifts from their wish lists, which we wrap up and deliver to their homes along with another box of Christmas food as well as cash donations. 

Voluntary Board Member- I act as a voluntary board member for 2 charities – one is a health care charity that supports terminally ill adults, babies and children where I am also appointed as secretary to the Board. I am then a board member for another non profit which supports disadvantaged women and moms through education, donations and mentoring. As a board member, I provide advice as well as practical help in various activities including accounting, fundraising, entrepreneurship and strategic planning. 

Trilogy Trust Foundation- I founded this charity after facing severe hardship myself. We utilize family funds and donations through a self-sustaining model to help individuals facing economic hardship. By offering grants, mentorship, and support for education or starting businesses, the foundation aims to prevent homelessness and improve the lives of those in need, while also providing donations to support other non-profit organizations assisting low-income families and unhoused individuals across the county of Los Angeles.

Our foundation takes its name from the powerful symbolism of the past, present, and future. We firmly believe that while the past may have shaped our journey, it does not have to define our destination. Instead, it serves as a valuable source of learning and growth.

In the present, we recognize the immense potential for positive change. Here, we unite as a compassionate community, providing help and support to make a real difference in the lives of those facing economic hardships. Together, we can create transformative opportunities and pave the way for brighter tomorrows

By learning from the past and embracing the changes we can make in the present, we will create a future that shines with hope and promise.

Our foundation is dedicated to fostering resilience, empowering lives, and shaping a better tomorrow for all.
