Our investment objectives are long term growth using a "buy and hold" approach with companies which we have selected carefully based on fundamentals. We do not trade, we invest.
Our attitude to risk is moderate
We differ from the average investor in that we are a club with a long-term approach.
Our last three trades were purchases of Vodafone and of premium bonds (February 2010, in both cases an addition to existing holdings), and a further purchase of Anglo Pacific in November 2009.
Shares on our watchlist at the moment include William Hill and Healthcare Locums.
