Rich Simmonds,married to Marina Caenazzo,brother of Michael Peter Simmonds,uncle of Nicole Carvalho(previously Simmonds),is a long-time promoter of the latest and greatest schemes that promise passive income with limited effort and minimal risk. His advice that he peddles for investments goes against the long-established norms and investing best practice in terms of his views on risk and diversification (he is against diversification). Rich Simmonds is a South African national, however, relocated to Domodossola, Italy, on 29th November 2019 which is available to see on his public Instagram page.
Per his website he describes himself in the 3rd person by opening with “Disruptive Influencer, Rich Simmonds, Author, Disruptor and Challenger of the Status Quo. Consistently recognized as one of the Top20 Digital Marketing Influencers in the world.
