About the Manager


Roland Head

I'm an investment writer and analyst, with a particular focus on quality and value. I look for stocks with above-average returns and strong cash generation - always with dividends. I also have a lingering interest in commodity stocks, although I try and keep this guilty pleasure under control.  In earlier life, I worked as an systems engineer in telecoms and IT. The quantitative, rules-based approach required for this kind of work suits me and has certainly influenced my investing style. I also learned a lot from seeing the tech bubble deflate in 2000/1, when I was working for a large and now defunct telecoms group. My investment focus is increasingly on developing rules-based strategies such as my Stock in Focus portfolio. This reflects a significant part of my personal portfolio and is the subject of my weekly column here at Stockopedia. more »
