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:
- Copywriting: I write article, blog posts, review and how-to’s SEO-ready for you
- 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:
- Editor, copywriter and digital marketing (I write articles, improve blog posts SEO, help you with affiliate marketing, content marketing and advertising)
- Web services (making them, manage them, support you)

What I do during free time
- Financial markets analysis (since 2013)

- 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.
