Clive has been involved with the investment industry for over 30 years as a fund of funds manager and consultant. Much written material emanates from said industry a lot of which is overly technical, academic or just plain boring so he decided to take a different approach and write in a style that he hopes entertains as much as it informs and educates.
He is managing director of an investment consultancy firm he co-founded in 2012 – Albemarle Street Partners Ltd – specialising in advising IFAs on their investment strategy options in RDR world, projects for fund management groups and due diligence on new fund launches, acting as an independent consultant on investment committees, writing newsletters, technical papers and presenting at seminars on investment topics.
He is also a director of FundCalibre Ltd an independent on-line research centre and fund ratings agency, which is freely available to all investors. The FundCalibre investment research team analyses funds which are widely available to UK retail investors and identifies those which they believe have the most skilful managers with a high probability of generating out performance. These funds are awarded a proprietary “Elite Fund” rating.
And when he is not doing all that he rides his motor bike around the world. Here he is in Mongolia!
