Most of my time is spent on investment, managing clients’ portfolios and three authorised OEICS, gathering information from many sources or contributing to the Quilter Cheviot investment process through membership of a range of committees including asset allocation and stock selection. I also write the weekly Diary of a Fund Manager which currently has readers in 25 countries and a distribution list of over 15,000. As a result I appear in the press, TV and radio, speak at conferences and have contributed to London Business School, Warwick University and Open University seminars.
