About Me:

Work in ecommerce across marketing, product and partnerships, with a background in technology start ups. Very curious and combine this with my sector insights to focus on areas and companies to invest.

Been a long time investment lurker and knowledge builder, but over last 3 years been managing SIPPs and ISAs for myself and family.

Learning lots (esp understanding balance sheets and bottom up valuation), am performing well, but much more to learn and refine with my approach :0)

Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£500k
Diversification is ... important, but not beyond 10 positions
Small caps and growth with a focus on quality and momentum. Identify companies with an unfair advantage, but that meet key financial metrics to minimise downside risk. Hold 15 or less shares in a concentrated portfolio so i invest in my best ideas. Strict rules to manage entry position Focus on investing more in the winners as they grow Plan to hold indefinitely unless simple rules to sell are triggered (e.g.profit warnings) Like to keep things simple!!

Also it is fairly easy to just pick up and use as lots of templates and workflow already off the shelf…

Hi Gus and Funderstruck, I would think of Sopheon (LON:SPE) as a SAAS service like salesforce. Salesforce is delivering enterprise CRM through sales and service automation and marketing database and campaign management. Sopheon is enabling enterprise innovation which in its simplest form is ways to manage the capital allocation and priority projects that a business invests in across the enterprise and automating the end to…

Hi grb, Nothing related to their recent results. I went to the recent Mello event in Richmond in December '16 where £1pm CEO presented ... sold my 5% of SIPP portfolio holding after the meeting for a small profit as wasn't comfortable with risks over the next 1-2 years. The next stage of their planned growth is investment in a fintech platform and I had…

Hi Paul,Am a big £G4M fan too esp as they are creating enough differentiation to not just be swallowed up by the ever growing amazon! My background is eCommerce marketing so just done a bit of digging with that perspective to review them..Did a bit of digging and G4M seem to be very successfully selling their own brand music products on both ebay and amazon…
