About Me:

I'm a marketing guy who advises firms on go-to-market strategy, mostly in B2B and technology. I do this at my consultancy Where You Stand Ltd

For the last three years, I have also been investing in listed (mostly small caps, some main market) and unlisted companies (mostly tech start-ups). I sometimes day trade but the majority of my holdings are long-term.

I am a shareholder in GAME Digital (LON:GMD) and have a question for more experience investors than me. If I decide to reject the offer, am I prejudicing myself in any way? For instance, if the offer goes ahead and I have rejected it, does that mean my shares will not be sold as part of the takeover and I will be left holding shares…

In mid October 2018 I invited SCVR readers to participate in my annual Investor Sentiment survey. The organisers of Mello London also invited the attendees of Mello Chiswick to take part.  By mid November, 167 people had responded so I closed the poll and presented the findings at Mello Chiswick yesterday.  The survey seeks to understand private investor behaviour and feelings about the markets they…

Thanks Ambrosia and David. I'm going to pick this up again in September and mull over what sort of event to hold to in the meantime. Cheers, Francis

Re Burford Capital (LON:BUR) Amazing to see a firm lose 50% of its value in a day and 70% in two days. Graham is writing an analysis of the Muddy Waters report on his other site. Link here Cheers Francis

More excellent contributions, thank you all, you've given me lots to research! cheers Francis

Thanks Graham, looks like they are a consistently good performer. But their holdings don't seem to scream "environmentally friendly" so I might have to do further research here.Largest Holdings %1 ROCHE HLDG AG 3.462 ADIDAS AG 3.093 ASTRAZENECA PLC 3.044 VISA INC CLASS A SHARES COMMON STOCK USD.0001 3.035 RENTOKIL INITIAL 3.036 MICROSOFT CORP 2.967 LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE GROUP 2.958 EXPERIAN GROUP CFD CS GBP…
