What’s on offer

The core content offered to Investment Reader members is:

  • Periodic Q and As with leading professional and private investors;
  • Market and portfolio commentary by the editor and others;
  • Topics and charts of the week;
  • Guest columns by experienced market participants;
  • Good reads – links to recommended books and media articles;
  • Other things that interest me and are relevant.

A variety of delivery options

Members can choose to read the material we publish as and when they choose. The website is updated on a regular basis. Everything that has been written is archived on the website. A summary of  any new content is emailed to subscribers once a week. You can visit the site at any time to see the latest additions and search past posts. Short content summaries are also posted to my blog (www.blog.independent-investor.com).

What it is not

Investment Reader is not an investment advisory service. It does not claim to be comprehensive, nor do I lay any claim to omniscience (as the writers of many investment newsletters appear to do). Although I hold a high level professional investment qualification in private client investment management and am a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investments (MCSI), The Investment Reader does not seek, nor is it authorised, to give individual investment advice. The regular Q and As provide a snapshot of a number of leading market participants’ current thinking, designed to be a valuable input into readers’ decision-making.

Investor panel

I canvas the opinions of professional investors views in two ways – informally over the phone and in face-to-face meetings, and more formally in the form of short, regular Q and As for publication in Investment Reader. Those I canvas include many well known fund managers and investment strategists. In all there are about some 40 professional investors whose views I monitor on a regular basis. All the professionals featured are known to me and in several cases manage funds in which I invest myself (these details are disclosed on a regular basis). From time to time I also speak to successful private investors too.

What it costs

Registering for the editor’s summary email is free. All messages to network members are in electronic format only. The current introductory rate for a first year subscription is £240 (including VAT), or £20 (including VAT) per month. Members of the network qualify for discounts of up to 50% on tickets to our regular investment seminars and conferences. No use is made of subscribers’ personal details for any other commercial purpose.

I very much hope that you will find the Investment Reader network of value.
