About Me:

Private investor and publisher of

i have several years of experience as an investor both of equities in the market and in the investment trusts sector.

Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk

I invest on a value & growth basis. I'm a strong believer in the value of dividends but a mix of growth on a 80/20 value/growth basis is approximately the mix I look for.

Blog researches and explains the best and the worst that the Investment Trust & Investment Company sector has to offer. It is a £95 billion sector (assets under management) that enjoy a lower profile than I beleive it deserves. Research has shown that investments trusts outperform their open ended rivals (unit trusts & OEIC's) over time. Many self invested private investors are aware of this already but some have still to learn and I aim to help them.

As investors get back to their desks following the new year splurge, Rob Morgan of Charles Stanley Direct picks out his six key risks for 2014. 2013 turned out to be a great year for many investors. An improving economy, buoyant equity markets and plenty of successful flotations, notably Royal Mail, have given the start to 2014 an air of confidence. Markets like to climb…

On the final day of 2013 Russ Koesterich reflects of the near calamities and looks forward to events in 2014. This year began with many focusing on what could go wrong.

Instead, however, 2013 proved to be…

For most of the last decade it was fashionable to believe in the “supercycle”, a multi-decade trend of higher commodity prices driven by the rapid pace of Chinese economic growth. Mining companies and other commodity producers performed exceptionally well – for a period. Post the Great Financial Crisis in 2007, the fall from grace has been just as notable. A significant amount of speculative money…

January 1st 2013 saw the biggest change in the financial services industry in a generation with the advent of RDR, which, perhaps surprisingly has had as big an effect on investment trusts as open ended funds. The Retail Distribution Review or RDR affects the way fund managers, and other providers of investment and pension products can remunerate financial advisers. It forbids the payment of commission…

I sat in front of a fund manager from Franklin Templeton last week who waxed lyrical about the future prospects for Xaar. He has done very well from it already but is confident there is much more to come. Even today when the market has declined 3% with growth stocks doing badly Xaar has dropped a smidgeon over half a per cent.

I think the point Rob is making and I agree with Esenbel is all of that is already in the price and a number of mining companies are now throwing of cash on lowly valuations. Although growth in China has come down it is still there. Compound 7% a year for the next few years and you can see there is still considerable support for…

I worked for Tenon until recently. I could have told you about them (except of course that you never knew). The good news looking at the recent figures is you were lucky to get out north of 5p with them in danger of breaching their only recently agreed banking facilities from Lloyd's.
