Vanish Patel – on 12th January 2015
Vanish Patel started his journey towards financial independence in the summer of 2001 when he became a business angel and full-time property investor.
Today he is considered to be one of the Top 10 Property Experts in the UK.
He belongs to one of those astute and successful Indian business families expelled from Uganda by Idi Amin in 1972. He was four years old when his family arrived in London with a mere £100.
In 1991 he graduated from Aston University with a degree in Computer Science and entered the job market just as the country was in the middle of a recession. It took Vanish over six months to find his first job and the memory of that recession has never left him.
He spent the 90’s working as an IT Contractor for blue chip firms such as BBC, Kodak, Glaxo & KPMG. Although IT enabled him to generate a good income he knew that trading time for money was not going to help him achieve financial independence.
