Who is Roaring Kitty's wife Caroline? The secret love story of stock picking wizard who lives in $595,000 home
Roaring Kitty has been identified to be a 34-year-old financial adviser from Boston, living with his wife and daughter
Roaring Kitty, the YouTuber who is all over the news for causing a Wall Street crisis by skyrocketing the price of GameStop, is actually a married father of one from suburban Boston, as per the latest DailyMail report.
GameStop, which in reality is a struggling chain of video game retail stores, had its shares soar up by another 130 percent on January 27, thanks to YouTuber and finance guru Roaring Kitty. His campaign on Reddit, under the username DeepF***inValue, caused the company’s investors to gain over $3 billion during the stock’s staggering rally. At the same time, it led to a loss of billions of dollars for hedge funds Citron and Melvin Capital.
The whole campaign has left Wall Street disrupted and is now subject to SEC and Senate inquiries.
According to reports, he paid around $56,000 to build a stake of 50,000 shares. After his campaign caused a stir, Roaring Kitty posted a screenshot showing how his initial investment of $745,991 was now worth $47,973,298 million, which was later sourced by DailyMail. But by the next day, the sudden soaring of price caused a regulatory crisis, prompting Robinhood to bar the trading of GameStop.
Who is Roaring Kitty?
Roaring Kitty, who has driven top Wall Street leaders in a frenzy, has been unveiled to be Keith Gill, a 34-year-old financial adviser from Boston, Massachusetts. He had a firm named Roaring Kitty LLC in Concord, New Hampshire, for providing investment advisory services, but it was dissolved later.
Gill is presently employed at In Good Company, a branch of investment firm MassMutual. He also posts investment and finance tips on his YouTube channel Roaring Kitty, which started the entire episode.
In high school and college, he was a noted athlete and has been referred to as ‘one of the most decorated runners in the rich history of the cross country and track & field programs.’ If the same report is to be believed, he graduated in 2009 from Stonehill College in Easton, with a B.Sc. degree in Business Administration in Accounting.
Afterward, Gill worked in diverse firms and earned experience in lawsuits and financial regulation, which might have helped him gain more acumen for the Wall Street conquer. He often refers to himself with the nickname ‘Mr Wizard’ for playing a lesser-known card game.
Who is Roaring Kitty’s wife?
Keith Gill aka Roaring Kitty is married to Caroline Gill. Together, they bought a three-bedroom home in Wilmington, Massachusetts in 2017. The price of the apartment was listed as $595,000, according to a DailyMail report.
The couple is raising their two-year-old daughter at their home. Gill also has a brother, Kevin Gill, who now seems to be basking in joy for his brother’s newfound fame and fortune. The article from DailyMail reads, “He and his brother Keith were 'honored' in a 2008 newsletter for the game Wizard, loosely based on Trumps and invented by a Canadian entrepreneur, where he was referred to as 'Mr Wizard' and his brother Kevin as 'Dr Wizard'.”
They also had a sister, Sara, who tragically passed in June last year at the age of 43. Her three children were then taken in by their parents.
If an old version of his LinkedIn — sourced by DailyMail — is to be believed, Gill was the Vice President, Securities Analyst and Chief Compliance Officer at Lucidia, LLC, a now-dissolved New Hampshire investment advisory firm. In 2010, he set up his own company, Debris Publishing, that created a program named Quuve dubbed as 'the world's first fully customizable investment management ecosystem for professional investors'. He then went on to become an Investment Operations Analyst at LexShares in 2016.
