He was also a member of his Table Tennis varsity team. Anton also plays the guitar and piano. His ambition is to be the country’s youngest billionaire.
The Fausto Brothers have been exposed to financial literacy very early in life. When they were still babies, their parents opened their individual savings accounts. They have been saving from their allowance, cash gifts and occasional earnings from different endeavors. They were also gifted a few shares of stocks of companies that they could easily understand when they were still very young. Today, they buy their own stocks with their own money. Since last year, their parents have transferred to them the responsibility of updating their individual Balance Sheets on a quarterly basis.
