“The real estate industry is very dynamic. Macro and micro economic events, rules, regulations, interest rates may change anytime which in turn affect the property market cycles. Dayn Advisory is here to help our clients navigate these changes so that they are well-positioned to be one step ahead in using mortgages effectively in their real estate purchases, managing their cashflows and realizing returns on their real estate investments.”

Armen’s professional background is based in the creative industry. However, his interest in finance and investment was sparked in 2012 when he came across articles about the sub-prime mortgage crisis and how it almost crashed the entire world economic system.
He has since extensively read on how the economy works. He has also previously operated a gold and silver investing business. In fact, he credits his background in the creative industry as allowing him to be able to digest the “boring” aspect of finance easily, and seeks to use his skills to communicate others on economic literacy.
“There’s just not enough financial literacy nor education in the community; which is amusing considering that money is something all of us use every day. We know how to use money, but we don’t know what makes it work the way it works. Much less about how to make it work for us.”
Armen is currently the Dayn Advisory’s Business Operations Manager. He still sees himself as a novice of financial world, however, and hopes to acquire a certificate in financial studies one day.
