You will find my June 2020 investment guide below. It outlines my investment philosophy: Investing only in businesses that I have worked in or worked with, that I have researched thoroughly.
The reason for that is that my analytics skills developed whilst taking an MBA and working as a Financial analyst, together with real-world experience of working with these companies, give me a unique investing edge.
That's why I have concentrated on the US High-Tech sector, and primarily companies that have recently been listed on the Nasdaq. I was paid handsomely for this work by a US investor. But you can get it for free, here.
....along with some other guides that I think will help you understand the cybersecurity and cloud-computing sectors.
I was lucky to get an invite to this exclusive webinar from Exeter College, Oxford University, where Sir Ronald Cohen was an undergraduate.
After graduating with an MBA from Harvard Business School, Cohen worked as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company in the UK and Italy.
In 1972, along with two former business school colleagues as partners, he founded Apax Partners, one of Britain's first venture capital firms.
The company grew slowly at first, but expanded rapidly in the 1990s, becoming Britain's largest venture capital firm, and "one of three truly global venture capital firms".
Apax provided startup capital for over 500 companies and provided money for many others, including AOL, Virgin, Waterstone's, and PPL Therapeutics, the company that cloned Dolly the sheep.
My favourite part of the discussion was when Sir Ronald Cohen was talking about his career progression. Ronald said that Oxford was the more intellectually challenging of the two institutions he attended. He said that Harvard Business School was more 'like a trade school'.
Sir Ronald made the world's most prestigious business school sound like a place you go to learn how to become an electrician or a plumber, not a Titan of industry, like him or, fellow Harvard MBA Steve Schwartzman, founder of Blackstone Group.
To be fair, Ronald said later that he wouldn't have achieved the success he did if he hadn't attended Harvard Business School. If you are eighteen or nineteen at Oxford, studying a subject like PPE, you would have had such a variety of intellectual stimulations. But getting an MBA is a much more focused endeavour.

I'm sceptical of how much millionaires and billionaires can do to alleviate inequality. During the Great Depression of the 1930s in the USA, it was government and the leadership of President Roosevelt, not the business community, that created a 'New Deal' that pulled the country out of the economic slump.
On a macro-level, I wonder how effective will these initiatives be? But I'm still open-minded, and Sir Ronald did make some excellent points, worth considering, on how social investing can benefit society.
Investors are increasingly considering all aspects of the businesses they back - not just how much money it makes, but also how much the industry contributes to society.
Is the company a significant polluter, like BP or Shell? Or does it have a vision for a greener future, like Tesla, which has seen its share price grow 300% this year?
