Sam Beckers
Chief Executive Officer

Samuel Beckers was introduced to trading the financial markets during the dot-com boom in San Francisco in the late 1990’s. His mentors were seasoned hedge fund managers that guided his growth and emphasized certain key elements of success. In a short period of time, financial markets experienced unprecedented volatility that educated Mr. Beckers in a variety of market conditions.

Sam began to research liquid markets for short term trading, searching for a consistent, profitable trading advantage. By 2005, observations in his research had led to a fundamental breakthrough which changed the way he viewed markets. Primarily this breakthrough involved looking at account growth from a “risk first” perspective. A year later, he began managing a limited partnership which capitalized on risk management and a unique proprietary trading methodology.

Further refinement and evolution of the methodology naturally led to the futures market and the establishment of the Intraday Advantage Program in January, 2011. The program continues to operate after many years using the original concepts, which have repeatedly proven themselves over time.

Mr. Beckers is a Principal of Soaring Pelican, LLC, holds a Series 7 designation, and holds a BA in International Business from San Diego State University in California. His passions include all ocean related activities, musical endeavors, spending time with his wife and 2 children, and enjoying the natural beauty of home on Vancouver Island in Canada.
