23-year-old has "talent for equity research"

Our experts say this beginner investor is overconfident about his abilities and give him some tips on how to be more realistic.

Mark is 23 and has been investing for six months. He wants to secure a secondary income, but is also looking to get a job in investments or trading.

He says: "Risk is an unfortunate part of investment. I tend to invest in larger companies and do extensive research before investing due to my inexperience. I have a fairly diversified portfolio, covering industries I've either worked in or studied during my time in academia. I think I have a talent for equity research."
