The Old Man’s Views What are we going to do now?

I shed a few tears on Monday when my Queen, Elizabeth, was finally put to rest. Her burial signified an end of an era, and like any end, it means things will change.   In the UK, we can debate the Monarchy’s future; will Charles III will be a good King? How long will it…

The Old Man’s Views I take a few weeks off, and the world turns upside down. Or has it?

Refreshing the batteries by getting out and seeing a few different sights is always good.   However, losing your Queen is devastating.   The Queen is dead. Long live the King! That sounds all well and good, but for many of us, the loss of Elizabeth II is a hard pill to take. I don’t…

The Old Man’s Views Summertime Blues?

Your favourite Old Man is going on holiday, and as the markets decline, it sure seems like a good time to take a few weeks off. Indeed, considering the state of the economy, this might be the last one I can afford for a few years. I’ve been bearish for the best part of a…

The Old Man’s Views There is more action on the beaches than in the markets!

Another week has passed, and it seems more traders are on the beach than in their offices. There are lots of stories on LinkedIn, but most of them are just promotional. I am spending much of my time arranging my Airbnbs and ensuring my guests have a decent holiday visiting Portugal. Sadly, the same cannot…

The Old Man’s Views Congratulations to the England Women’s football team!

Years of dedication and effort paid off! A team of people, who suffered to become the best at what they do, have finally achieved the success they have earned. As an Englishman, I can’t remember when I was so proud of English footballers, or at least it’s been a long time (I was nine years…

The Old Man’s Views Thank God for the Sunshine. But not the drought.

Once again, it’s been a week with very little substance to report. Joe Biden is still the worst President in American history. Last week he told us he had cancer, 24 hours later, they told us he had Covid. This week I expect they will say to us he has caught Monkey Pox! (which he…

The Old Man’s Views As an adviser during these dangerous times, how are you dealing with questions and complaints?

As I’ve never been a salesman, my direct involvement with non-professional investors has been minimal, However, that does not mean I have not received complaints when my advice goes wrong, and investors lose money. After spending hours on the phone and listening to clients’ complaints, salespeople can become much angrier than their investors, and they…

The Old Man’s Views It’s holiday time, so no more doom and gloom?

The sun is shining, the holidaymakers are happy, and it’s time to enjoy life. We are still far from seeing a return to economic growth, but by now, most people have committed to what they will do investment-wise, so what’s the point of remaining grumpy? We’ve all made our bets. Now it’s time to see…
