About Me:

Worked in the City of London for over 20 years as a Fund Manager for a number of top institutions. In my career I managed billions of £'s across a whole range of different funds from Distribution funds, Investment Trusts, OEIC's / Unit Trusts & Pension funds. I was also involved in the management of Income funds more generally. In March 2009, I quit the City and escaped the rat race to earn my living from my own investments. Since then I have been managing my own income funds. 

I focus on UK stocks with a value / yield / quality bias and select from the whole market down to about a £50 million market capitalisation, although on occasions I stray into micro cap if I feel the investment case is compelling. This is becasue I have VCT holdings which give me micro cap exposure. I also invest in Investment Trusts and ETF's for overseas markets or exposure to other asset classes, but again with the aim of achieving an income as well as diversification. I'm now trying to give something back by writing more regularly on my Blog / website - but can't make any promises about how regularly I will write here on Stockopedia, so check out my site and sign up for free e-mail updates if you want my latest posts in your in box.


Investment Strategy
I tend to buy... after much research

I follow a Quality Value and Yield based strategy by focussing on valuation, yield, dividend cover and growth, business characteristics and financial security. In addition I pay some attention to momentum factors, especially earning revisions and price momentum and utilize quantitative techniques (including Stockopedia) to help identify new ideas and monitor my portfoilo.


Blog

Compound Income is all about the fact that, in the long run and especially in bear markets, most of the returns from shares comes from dividends. I will aim to explain why I focus on Compounding my income and explain the background to my investment approach together with periodic research and updates on shares I either hold or am interested in. In addition I will add comments and links to other blogs or web resources that I find useful from time to time.
