About Me:

I'm a private investor based in the UK. I run Valuhunteruk a value investing blog started in March 2011 which is a continuation of a private blog I have been running since mid-2010. I publish the research and key ideas behind my decisions and the performance is tracked in a portofolio.

Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£500k

I follow a value investing philosophy. I tend not to subscribe to any one opinion and focus instead on not overpaying, particularly, with regard to future growth. I try to focus as much as possible on situations with clear catalysts for revaluation however, as I run a benchmarked portfolio on my web site I also look at more general situations without any specific catalysts. The benchmark I follow is the FTSE 250 (for simplicity more than accuracy) but I generally try to target a low-to-mid teens return although this depends on the current market. The other outcome of the benchmarked portfolio is that I run slightly more positions than the typical private value investor and I adjust risk through exposure to the general or special situations.
