I am an economics graduate and retired chartered accountant (EY). I established a corporate finance boutique in my late twenties, became involved in my family's retail business in my early forties and later returned  to corporate finance. I retired in 2019 and now dedicate most of my time to family, investing, playing tennis, learning to play Bridge (I’m 20% of the way through a four year course!) and horse racing (mainly via syndicates).

I've been investing since I was eighteen. Since establishing PEPs for my spouse and I in 1993 I have achieved an annualised IRR of over 16%. Our SIPPs have performed in a similar manner.

Investment strategy

Despite having a similar surname to George Soros and sharing Hungarian origins my investing style is far closer to Warren Buffett. I generally focus on quality companies at a reasonable price ("QARP"). For quality, I look for companies generating high profits margins and returns on capital employed (as measured by the return on total tangible assets adjusted for capitalised R&D).
