To the Future!

I believe that start-ups are the future. They are the ones that are challenging the way we think and do things and are nimble enough to tenaciously execute against their ambitions. The real power in these “young companies” lie in the driving force behind them… sometimes a single person (Founder, CEO) and sometimes the vision (“to enable the 99% to invest like the 1%”). What ever it is, each of the following companies have a good story behind them.

It would be a great honor for me to be involved in building the future, and with this in mind I’d be open to have conversations about joining a start-up as an advisor, NED (non-executive director), mentor or coach. Please get in touch to discuss this further.

My Start-up Portfolio

I’ve been building my start-up portfolio based on my belief in the company’s potential to disrupt a traditional industry, their ambitions to give back to the community and the track record of the Founder / CEO / Exec Team to deliver on their promises.

So far I’ve invested across a number of industries in the following companies…

Investment Platform


My Investment Platform

I’ve was searching for a while for a good investment platform to trade in equities (shares) especially using a Stocks & Shares ISA. I wanted a platform that enables me to access UK and US equities and offer the lowest of very competitive transaction / trading fees. YouInvest by AJ Bell came highly recommended to me and now I recommend it to you. They tick all my boxes and have low trading fees* (£9.99 / trade) with frequent trading or re-investment discounts available.

Once you’ve opened and funded your account, please send an email with your name and address to They will post you a copy of ‘The DIY Investor’ and I’ll get a small referral fee. (thanks!)

* trading fees are the costs of buying / selling shares or other financial investments. It does not apply to transferring money in/out of the platform
