Welcome to the 7th CONKERS’ CORNER. In this interview I have the pleasure of speaking with John Rosier @johnrosier. In June 1984, John left university with a degree in Zoology and started work in The City of London. He enjoyed the first 14 years of his career at Fleming Investment Management, initially as an analyst and then as a UK portfolio manager; in 1997 he was appointed Head of UK Equities. He was a Director at Henderson Global Investors from 1998 until 2004, before moving to the West End and working for two hedge funds. His investment career at Flemings and Henderson was focused on managing UK equity portfolios for corporate and local authority final salary defined benefit pension schemes as well as the reserve fund for the NSPCC.
During 2009 he left full time employment, since then he has been managing my own portfolio. He has thoroughly enjoyed the freedom of investing from home and despite some tricky periods during 2011 he has found it a rewarding experience.
On 1st January 2012 John decided to chronicle his JIC Portfolio, which he started with cash of £151,110. You can see his outstanding performance here:http://johnsinvestmentchronicle.com/
In October 2014 began writing a regular column “The Diary of a Private Investor” for the DAILY MAIL. You can find his articles here on the This is Money website:
