My work

I am a freelance investment writer and analyst, with a particular interest in UK equity income. I can provide both editorial/opinion articles and white label news coverage, depending on client requirements. I also have experience of running model portfolios for a number of clients.

I have passed the CFA Level I exam and hold the CFA UK Investment Management Certificate (IMC). I am a keen private investor.

Other publishing credits

Between 2006 and 2014 I wrote regularly for two UK antique and collectable magazines, looking at antiques and latterly the alternative investment market.

Antiques Info – A UK antiques magazine, now sadly defunct (October 2014) aimed at antique collectors and dealers with a bias towards investment.

I wrote regular features on 20th century British ceramics for Antiques Info from 2006 until 2014. Towards the end of this period, I also produced a series of articles looking at popular alternative investments, such as classic cars, stamps and rare wines.

Collect It! – I wrote for the now-defunct Collect It! magazine over a period of several years from 2007 – 2010. Subjects covered included buying and selling at auction, understanding the condition of ceramics and building a collection.

Collect It! was published by Warner Group Publications. You can see some of Warner’s current publications and output on the Collectors Club of Great Britain website.
