As a result of his accomplishments, the Templeton Foundation invited him to participate in a coveted investment challenge. They wanted to see what he could do with $50 million, and within two years, he had made a 76% return on the investment, which was quite good given that this was during the economic crisis.
Mr. King, later on, moved to Banyan Hill Publishing as a senior contributor, where he educates his readers on the developments of the cryptocurrency field, as well as guide them on their investment decisions. He also does the same at Investopedia, where he is a senior contributor. His success in investments has seen him get interviewed by media giants such as Fox Business News, where he has shared his knowledge and insights with the public.
Ian King believes in taking calculated risks; having an eye for the opportunity when the eyes of people see nothing spectacular. It has helped him reap big from products like Netflix which he invested in because he saw the future of video streaming. During Google’s Initial Public Offering (IPO), he risked and invested there despite its negative publicity at the time, and he doubled his investments. The stock value of Google has shot by a staggering 2234% after the IPO, which shows how the decision to invest there paid off.
With all these investment medals in his bag, Ian King decided to retire at the age of 40 and moved on to his upcountry home in Raleigh, North Carolina as a man who had achieved his dreams at such a young age.
