About Me:

5 years into investing in shares - done quite well so far with c. 25% p.a. return - but somewhat variable YoY. Typically in 3 to 6 small cap shares with a QM based strategy and earnings upgrades or positive news flow.

I've read and re-read many investing books and continue to devour anything that might give me insight or education from the experiences of others in the markets. Behavioural research has particular relevance to investing and it was reading Kahneman's 'Thinking Fast and Slow' that tempted me to commit money to the stock market.

Modelling with multiple, variable, unpredictable inputs becomes easier when you learn which inputs are critical - once you understand the driving factors and limiting factors you're halfway there.

When I am not immersed in Stockopedia/RNSs/Spreadsheets etc. you might find me doing one of the following:

Brewing, Climbing, Cycling, Mountaineering, Rowing, Running


Investment Strategy
I trade... a few times per year
I tend to buy... according to my system
I hold for... a few months
I invest with... <£500k
Diversification is ... important, but not beyond 10 positions
3 to 6 small cap shares with a QM based strategy and earnings upgrades and/or positive news flow.
