Born on February 7, 1945, Bruce Aitken grew up in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, during a golden age of American confidence and world peace. Educated in public schools, he graduated as a member of the amazing Class of 1963, full of optimism, patriotism and confidence in America and the lofty ideals it stood for. After graduating from Florida Southern College on a full scholarship, Bruce hoped to fill his lifelong dream to become a professional baseball player. However, fate intervened, and instead, drawn by a desire to see the world, Bruce embarked on a lifelong journey of adventure and excitement that covered the globe.
Settling in Hong Kong in the early 1970s, and working in the financial markets during an era of almost universal foreign exchange controls, fate, luck and hard work resulted in Bruce becoming a major player in the currency black markets. While the job was fraught with risk and danger, observing the world and America from the outside gave Bruce a unique perspective into what is important in life, and the evolution of money laundering into a major universal crime.
Bruce currently produces and hosts a popular Sunday night radio show in Hong Kong called “Hour of Love”.
