Experienced stock picker Paul Mumford, a 50-year veteran of the City, tells all
In the latest Money Makers podcast, our series of in-depth conversations with leading professional investors, Jonathan Davis talks to experienced stockpicker Paul Mumford, who has been running what is now the £150m Cavendish Opportunities Fund, a small and midcap specialist, since 1988.
Paul is also the author of a recently published book, The Stock Picker, which look backs entertainingly over the highs and lows of his 50-year career in the financial markets and explains why he is not too worried (yet) about Brexit, higher interest rates or Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister. He also discusses some of his favourite investment themes at present.
