I'm a fund manager at what many would call one of the "big players" in UK fund management, managing money for most of the last decade and before that working as a buyside analyst. I write a weekly blog for Research Tree, the equity research platform. There is a host of myths and misconceptions about the industry. Some of it is encouraged to build mystique and some comes from a lack of transparency. My 5 goals for this blog are: 1) Only write what I find interesting, 2) Be brief! 3) Be clear how I think about stocks, 4) Share what I've learnt (or re-learnt), and 5) Remain anonymous.
