Next weekend will mark the first anniversary of the free Money Makers weekly investment trust podcast which I started a year ago. Every week Simon Elliott, head of investment trust research at Winterflood Securities, and I join forces to discuss the latest news and data from the investment trust world. We now have more than 1200 regular listeners, all recruited by word of mouth, so what started as an experimental offering in the depths of the markets’ despairing response to the emerging Covid-19 pandemic last March seems to have struck a chord with private and professional investors alike.
Nothing underlines better how fascinating the investment trust sector is than the fact that Simon and I rarely run out of things to talk about in our 45 to 60 minute weekly conversation. We record the podcast in one take on a Friday afternoon and publish it, lightly edited, around lunchtime on Saturday. The podcast also features prominently on the Association of Investment Companies website (theaic.co.uk) a couple of days later. It has been a pleasure to indulge our passion for the subject with hundreds of other enthusiasts. If you are interested in investing, why not join us?
