Anthony S. Casey attended the Chatham House Grammar School from 1986 to 1993. An achiever from an early age, Casey earned 9 General Certificate of Secondary Education passes, including 2 at the Advanced level. Expressing an early interest in financial markets, Anthony secured an internship work placement at the London Stock Exchange, aged just 17 years old. This was invaluable experience during the boom time in the City of London and would plant the seed for future endeavors.
Like many young men just stepping out of the classroom, Casey wanted to broaden his horizons and see more of the world. Having deferred his entry into University, Casey studied a book called Work Your Way Around the World by Susan Griffith. This book proved to Anthony that through tenacity and flexibility, he could afford to travel instead of staying put in his life. He ventured to Tenerife in the Spanish Canary Islands, off the west coast of Africa. It was there that he joined the crew of a 54-foot yacht that traveled across the Atlantic Ocean. The yacht made stops throughout the Atlantic including most of the Caribbean islands. Anthony S. Casey eventually found himself in Miami working as an events coordinator for the growing dance music scene. As Casey’s professional and personal life was evolving, and he went with his heart and relocated with a German heiress he met to her hometown in Frankfurt, Germany.
While in Germany, Casey continued his involvement in the house music world, traveling to Ibiza, Spain in 1994. Ibiza is known as a party hot spot and the global centre of dance music, sporting many superclubs and pristine beaches.
Anthony S. Casey identified the emerging world of house music as an industry ripe to profit in. This would later evolve into today’s widely popular electric dance music (EDM). In Ibiza, Anthony S. Casey, with a business partner, founded Raveco.
Raveco was established to cater to the increasing numbers of House music nights being held by the huge clubs. Raveco would facilitate the VIP experience for it’s clients, allowing them to skip the often 2 hour entry queue and access the VIP lounges in the club, where they could mingle with world famous DJs and celebrities. This was an awesome opportunity for everyone in the scene. What started as a once a week event at a few venues on Ibiza, escalated into two events a week, and culminated into three thrilling events per night in 1996. Raveco was invited to assist clubs in Tenerife, Miami, Frankfurt and later Cape Town in South Africa. At it’s peak, Raveco was supplying VIP tickets to over one thousand people partying per night across five different countries.

Casey took a job as a Trainee Stock Broker at London’s exclusive Capel-Cure Myers Capital Management.
The company would eventually be bought and absorbed by FTSE 100 Company, Old Mutual. Nonetheless, Casey’s time working in Royal Mint Court was an extremely useful education in finance.
