In these alarming times, with the Covid-19 pandemic wreaking havoc on both our lives and the nation’s economic activity, it is more important than ever to keep a balanced perspective on what is happening to your investments. With that in mind, in April 2020 we started a new weekly podcast dedicated exclusively to following the latest news and developments in the investment trust sector. Every Friday afternoon Jonathan Davis, editor of the Investment Trusts Handbook, sits down to talk to Simon Elliott, head of investment trust research at Winterflood Securities, about the latest price, NAV and discount movements that week and to dig deeper into some of the biggest current investment trust stories. To listen in, just sign up to our mailing list and you will be notified every time a new podcast has appeared (typically after lunch on Saturday).
Join the Money Makers circle
In addition to the free weekly investment trust podcast, we are launching a members’ subscription service in January to provide a regular summary of the most interesting research, conversations and media that have informed our own perspective on the markets. Curated by the editor Jonathan Davis, the service includes interviews with top professional investors, model portfolio updates, links to interesting articles and commentary from leading analysts. The cost of the service is £8 a month, or £96 a year – an invaluable resource for thoughtful, long term investors. Find out more here.
The 2021 Handbook is now out
Edited by Jonathan Davis, with 25 expert contributors including John Baron, Max King, Sandy Cross, Peter Spiller, Simon Elliott, Alan Brierley, James Carthew, Charles Plowden and many other leading professional experts, The Investment Trusts Handbook 2021 is an annual independent educational publication designed to provide investors with expert views and essential information about investment trusts (often referred to as the City’s best-kept secret). The latest edition, the fourth in the series, contains more than 90% new or updated content and was published in December 2020. Master Investor calls it “truly the definitive guide to the sector right now”.
A high-quality, full-colour hardback of roughly 280 pages, the Handbook is an indispensable companion for anyone looking to invest in the investment trusts arena. It contains more than two dozen articles and interviews, a review of the year, the editor’s notes, a guide to analysing investment trusts and a series of detailed data tables with related commentary. There is also a free e-book version, containing the editor’s latest comments on the impact of the coronavirus and other topical issues. Available to pre-order now from Harriman House or Amazon.
At Money Makers we offer a range of comment, analysis, links and interviews, culled from the many sources that our editor has come to value over more than 35 years of following the financial markets as an author, national newspaper columnist and professionally qualified investor. If you are looking for speculative share tips, Money Makers will not be for you, but if you want top quality insight from some of the best minds in finance, you have come to the right place.
Money Makers is conceived as a high quality and independent information resource for serious-minded investors. The content on offer includes podcasts, Q&As with top professional investors, market and portfolio reviews, and links to articles by experts whose work we have reason to admire. We also track fund and stock data. All this content is updated regularly on the website, with regular emails summarising the latest free and premium content.
