My name is Roland Head. I've worked full time as an freelance investment writer and analyst since 2012. Prior to investment writing, my professional background was as an engineer working in IT and telecoms.
I'm a keen private investor, investing exclusively in the UK stock market. My main focus is equity income.
My investing approach is built around a stock screening system I have developed to filter and score UK dividend shares. I use this as the starting point for my investment choices, before applying additional research and analysis.
The model portfolio largely mirrors my own personal portfolio and accounts for the majority of my personal investments.
I hope that my commentary and investing progress will be of interest to other investors, but I should emphasise that I do not provide financial advice or recommendations.

I also manage a large-cap high yield model portfolio on the Investor's Champion website.
I hold the CFA UK Investment Management Certificate (IMC) and have passed the CFA Level 1 exam.
