Our quarterly investment trust magazine
We invest to make the most of our money. Aiming to grow our capital, to generate an income or a combination of both. But how can we know if we’re backing a winner that’s likely to deliver what we need over the longer term? Is choosing where to invest an art or a science?
These are challenging questions at any time, and the choppy market conditions we experienced at the end of 2018 may also mean they are more at the forefront of many investor minds than in recent years.
That’s why, in this edition of Taking Stock, we asked our expert contributors to explore some of the markers and measures for investing success.
From the length of service of an investment manager, through whether they invest in their own fund, to teamwork and process. What exactly is it that can give managers the edge? How do they go about benchmarking their own success? And how can you use that information to help decide if you’re on the right track?
