I’ve put a lot of thought into planning my personal finances, and you can gain the benefit of my insights through my posts here and on Thoughtsworththinking.net. Like most investors, I was shocked by the financial crisis that emerged in 2008, and I have found the impetuous and often contradictory opinions expressed by some professionals on markets and the economy to be largely unhelpful. I have come to the conclusion that many (but not all) commentators lack the objectivity and perspective to speak credibly about the future.
Having put a significant amount of work into making my own financial decisions—as well as having a Master’s degree from the London School of Economics where I studied the relationship between politics and the world economy—I can offer a perspective that has value to the investment community, including the personal investor. I don’t expect or recommend that anyone accept my opinion as sacrosanct, but as one of many perspectives that can add value to a studied investment decision. My goal in every article or opinion I offer is to provide something—whether a fact or confluence of arguments—that you will not be able to find anywhere else, using the experience, perspective, and research capabilities I bring to the table.
The information I provide on this web site does not constitute professional investment advice, and should only be used in consonance with all available information, including the opinion of a professional adviser, to make an investment decision.
