Chief Investment Commentator
Currently Chief Investment Commentator at wealth manager Charles Stanley, I have spent most of my career as a financial journalist. Previously the share tipster at the Daily and Sunday Telegraph - recommending equity investments in a daily column, and European market commentator at Standard & Poor's, I have been looking at equity markets for more than 20 years. A scientist by training, I now seek to identify long-term trends, as well as uncovering the meaning behind unusual market movements. Today I want to look at the trend that have driven markets over the last ten years, with an emphasis on technology, then ask what the future holds for one of the most important sectors in markets today.
