Cheers, OLTB.


Thanks for the note. JB is well regarded and he must have chosen this one for a reason so I will have a look.

Private Equity Investments

I am looking at investing in a private equity fund, Harbourvest Global Private Equity (HVPE) for three reasons. 1 - Correlation between HVPE and some of my larger holdings is either very low or negative (using the CORREL function in Excel) which is very good for diversification 2 - -Having worked fo...

This is a very good post on something that can have disasterous consequences.

Re: Bone conducting headphones?

A colleague of mine was given a set as a present. He was not hard of hearing, his kids just thought he would like them, and he did. Very much.
I cannot recall the brand but he certainly was an advocate for them

Re: UK Sharedealing accounts for non-residents

On a previous lemon fool thread some posters suggested not telling the broker where I live, which I could do because I'm a British citizen, have a UK address, UK bank account, and NI number. One of my colleagues does the same thing. My question is, how good of an idea is this? What's the worst that...

Re: Another Smart Meter query

Pure Planet. Have a smart meter if you want (SMETS2) or not. I did want one but the signal strength in my area (urban) is too weak to run the meters.

The Loudest Voice

For those with Sky Atlantic, the new series "The Loudest Voice" about the founding of Fox News and its CEO, Roger Ailes, is a must watch (imho). Ailes is bombastic, rude, crude, creepy and driven. He is brilliantly played by Russell Crowe who has lets say, transformed himself somewhat. Ter...

However, I have some income units and whilst total return is the same as for accumulation units, the share price lags behind acc un...

Re: Portfolio x-ray view by region

Hi All I would like to get a combined view of my funds and trackers by world region (sometimes called an x-ray view). I have tried using Trustnet, but it wasn't that good, it listed the top 10 and then lumped everything else in 'other'. Because the different funds use such different titles of regio...

Re: Smith again

You are dead right on all counts. Smith is a terrificly effective batsman, and interesting to watch (he looks somewhat deranged in his style, wonderful).

Lynch overstepping (criminal), and Curran dropping Paine does not help either.
