Portfolio advice


Recommended Posts

Thanks, @trendfollower. 

I'm actually looking for someone who can offer advice on putting together a portfolio of, say 5 to 10 companies from the FTSE 100, 250 or All-Share indices, having particular regard to advice on the particular risks (such as potential problems with debt) of investing in identified high dividend paying companies. My company is the investor, and it has about £350k in cash to invest.

I would like a long term portfolio, and am therefore looking for a one-off piece of advice work for a fee, rather than ongoing active fund management or commission work.

I did read an article today saying stockbrokers tend to offer better value than wealth managers, but I am not sure if any offer this kind of service. I made a start today by emailing a few, picked randomly from an LSE list of stockbrokers. I am treading quite cautiously because the service that I am looking for doesn't seem to be something firms advertize on their websites, and I can't really get the feel of how flexible, comprehensive, wanting the business, or expert these firms are, outside their generic services.

I bank personally with RBS, although my branch is their rather idiosyncratic Drummonds branch, which is a quasi private bank, so I could try them.

    • @Courage Thanks for that input, I am following this one. Being a newbie what news days and countries are best to look out for and what days are the big mover news days. Thanks
    • Spot on. The FX market is “influenced by policy makers through the purchase or sales of bonds  “ their mandate is to keep the confidence in their respective economies as high as possible.   That confidence is what the Fiat monetary system is based on, the moment that goes the system evaporates. If you recall a few years ago during Theresa Mays government, the key phrase was strong and stable? . That's their mandate. They can't let a currency move too far towards one extreme or the other.     So if you wana make money on fx you need to extend your time horizon or take the other position when things go too far into one extreme. I am only 32 but remember I  the dollar decline and the dollar inflation story that has been around for along time now. It's the same old story once you realise it's the new cycle, you learn to side step it and focus on what's important and that's the economy. Economic strength expresses itself in currency strength. Focus on that and you will get the big moces right.
