His Story

Bill is our Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. As the head of a financial technology company, Bill lives and breathes global finance — when he’s indoors. But his passion is riding. Riding motorcycles, to be exact. If Bill could embark on a motorcycle journey every day, he would. His heart doesn’t just beat for riding adventures. It revs.

For Bill, riding has always been about freedom, passion and, as the miles turn into days on his journeys, clarity of mind. And it’s been that way since 1997, the year he started riding his motorcycles across North America, traveling from Vancouver to Mexico, Nova Scotia and 15 U.S.states. To date, he has clocked over 50,000 kilometers of open road mindfulness, collecting and sharing hundreds of stories and experiences from his motorcycle adventures.

Bill, of course, plans his trips from start to finish. Before every motorcycle adventure, he memorizes maps, cities, street names and climates to ride out whatever natural or unnatural hazards come his way. So, when he walks through the doors of Sundial Capital Research, he’s clear-headed and ready as ever to empower investors far and wide to succeed on the road to financial freedom.

For William, helping investors trade with a clear head starts with a ride.

I love to ride my motorcycle wherever the road takes me. A long stretch of highway is so much more than travel to me – it's an adventure. Riding is a passion. It’s meditation for me. To this day, nothing gives me more clarity of mind than riding on the open road to anywhere.
