Job hunting after being terminated


Dear Doctors,

I worked in a family office and conduct investment works for it.

I was recently terminated because I asked for a better package. My reasons of asking for that is, 1) my previous pay is far below the market, 2) I got my CFA chartered recently and 3) I provide good result for company's portfolio during my service. I thought the reasons are solid but the company's management did't like this and eventually terminated me after a short period. 
That was so ridiculous, but anyway, things happened.

The point that make me headache is that, when I interview with a new company, I have to disclose that I was terminated, and this will clearly deduct so many points. So, doctors, how can I make it sounds better when being asked for this issue in the interview?

Looking forward to your answer, thank you.

Kind Regards,
