Episode 041: Niels Kaastrup-Larsen on Revolutionizing an Industry and Using Tragedy to Define Your Calling

What if the worst day of your life could actually be something that led to discovering one of your callings? That’s what happened to today’s guest when he rushed to his son’s school only to find his lifeless body lying there.

Interview with Niels Kaastrup-Larsen

Now, this story has a happy ending though. His son lived and the event led to today’s guest discovering one of his callings in life:

To save others from the same fate.

Today I am joined by our first international guest since Farnoosh Brock (who technically lives in the U.S. but was raised in Iran), Niels Kaastrup-Larsen.

About Niels

Niels is a Swiss-based dad, husband, entrepreneur and hedge fund manager turned podcaster. His podcast TopTradersUnplugged.com is the leading podcast within the hedge fund industry.

He divides his time between, his hedge fund, his podcast and his family’s charity kidsheart.org.

Niels wants to revolutionize the hedge fund industry as well as the way schools are equipped to handle cardiac arrests and other heart related emergencies following his own son’s cardiac arrest in 2011.

The bio could be much longer, but in the end, all you really need to know is that Niels is a father, a husband, and a man who cares deeply about, loves, and admires those closest to him and is humbled and grateful for the opportunity to create, to connect and to serve.
