Hi, I’m Francesco Pistore, I graduated in a MSc Finance in Venice, Italy and actually I work for an investment company as an Intern Business Analyst with a Global Investment Platform (SimCorp Dimension) inside the Competence Center team.

Here I have some space to explain what happened in the last years that brought me here. If you have questions feel free to send me a message via the contact form! :)

My passion for photography and travel

In 2006, at the age of 14, I received my first pocket camera.

After 5 years, during 2011, my mom decided to jump from her historical (but beautiful) analog camera to a new DSLR.. and what DSLR! It was a beautiful Nikon D90 with a stock 18-105mm. I was shocked about that beauty and everytime my dad went to a motorsport event I took with me also my mom’s D90.

I started to photograph rallies since my early ages. However only with the D90 I understood that a good camera with a good lens (even if stock) was the basic to do great photos.

I also started to travel a lot, firstly with my parents along Europe with a camper and later with my girlfriend Greta. We took more or less 30 planes in just 4 years and only for travel (not job neither study) reasons. Also Greta loves to photograph, especially people and street photography.

I don’t know how many photos I took during the lasts years, but I’m sure that I improved my skills and I’ve a lot of work to do in the future to improve them again and again. And I nearly satured 2x2TB HDD.

Psst.. I’m also a:

  • Certified EASA Enac APR pilot for OPEN A1-A3 categories
  • Google Local Guide

My passion for Internet and development

What about my passion for the web? It all started during my first two years of high school. I had a friend from India that was very good with computers.

I started to improve my skills and I published my first website, pistonet, during 2009 at the age of 17.

But I jumped in a new world (for me) only during 2012, when I discover WordPress, its plugins, its themes and, most of all, the SEO.

I started Stintup.com and it was my job during universities years. Thanks to Stintup I traveled a lot, both for business reasons and just for passion. I visited more than 25 countries, I achieved press membership in MWC Barcelona, Geneva International Motor Show, AMDE Padua, EXPO 2015 and many other international events.

Actually I offer these services given my over 8-years experience:

  1. Copywriting: I write article, blog posts, review and how-to’s SEO-ready for you
  2. I can build a nice and fast website for you

My studies and the passion for Finance

My studies have nothing to do with what you read up to here. In fact, after a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Management, I took a Master of Science in Finance in 2020 (held completely in english but based in Venice, Italy). On the same day, I was hired by an investment company for an Intern Business Analyst position. Essentially I work with big data and database, in particular I do: data extraction, data setup and modification and portfolio calculation. Team: Global Investment Platform - SimCorp Dimension Competence Center.

I have a big passion for financial markets since 2013, when I started trading and investing at the age of 20. Some years later I discovered the magic world of FinTech, where my two big passion of IT and finance come together! Only during 2017 I started to study cryptocurrencies and the technology behind it (blockchain) and some months later I started investing in Bitcoin.

What I do here for franzpisto.com

franzpisto.com is just my professional website. I used to call me franzpisto all over on the web, so I decided to call my personal website with this name.

I offer especially two services:

  1. Editor, copywriter and digital marketing (I write articles, improve blog posts SEO, help you with affiliate marketing, content marketing and advertising)
  2. Web services (making them, manage them, support you)
  3. Photo services (I take photo of your products and your business and make them better).

What I do during free time

  • Financial markets analysis (since 2013)
  • Crypto markets analysis (since 2017)
  • Growth Hacking - SEO, SEM, Email Marketing, Social Network (since 2012)
  • WordPress (since 2009)

My main personal interests are Finance & IT (basically Fintech). Actually my interest is captured by Blockchain, IA - Algo-trading, Risk Management. Codes I partially know: R, Matlab. Codes I’m studying: Python.

Thank You for reading!
