Have built up an investment portfolio slowly over past twenty plus years, first in Unit Trusts and over the last few years Investment Trusts.

Have always dabbled in a few direct shares, now have more time on my hands to up my game, with the aim to split the portfolio initially 80% ITs and 20% smaller uk growth shares.

Happy to take on risk with shares, as I'm well diversified in ITs.

Slowly getting use to spending several hours a day reading trading up dates, the small cap value report, and analysing Stockopedia stock data screens - and then making no investment decisions.

Continuous feeling of having missed the boat on the good growth shares!

Investment strategy

With circa 80% of portfolio in ITs,look for diversification and asset allocation based on my own view of the global economy and long term trends e.g. Bio Tech, EM (in particular India and to a lesser extent Vietnam). Approx 30-40% of IT portfolio in UK Smaller & Medium companies. Always had a long term bias to smaller companies.

Building portfolio of small cap UK growth shares (at a reasonable price) - interested in technology and scalable growth models. Use own modified version of guru screens to id shares for further analysis. Put off by high valuations - so may be missing out on some opportunities.
