Around the world in eight investment trusts

A question investment enthusiasts have been known to ponder is what fictional character would have made the best fund manager. The great sleuth Sherlock Holmes perhaps? Or maybe someone with out-of-this-world rationality, such as Dr Spock? Or what about Phileas Fogg? The 19th century eccentric boasts many desirable qualities for an investor: he’s an optimist; a believer in progress and technology; a supremely-rational thinker; unsentimental; a meticulous and steadfast planner but boldly pragmatic when need dictates; he’s a taker of daring but calculated risk; and he’s also a creature of habit (the ability to stick with an investment discipline is often the foundation of investment success). Yes, if one is to go on an around-the-world investment adventure, Mr Fogg certainly makes a desirable companion.
