DIY Investor Magazine Interview

A few weeks ago I was asked if I’d be interested in contributing an interview to DIY Investor Magazine.  Flattered as I was, I wasn’t sure whether people would be interested in reading about someone who’s only been investing properly for two years.

If you’re not familiar with the magazine, it follows a preset six questions asked of each interviewee.  I fortunately had the opportunity to read previous examples, including the most recent by @WheelieDealer.  Having taken a look, I felt I had the requisite experience to be able to give reasonable answers to these questions.  After all, there are always people just starting out, and if I could assist them in any way I’d be more than happy to do so.  The magazine was therefore published last week, and the Q&A interview went live this weekend:

It was a very interesting experience to be able to look back on my journey so far.  It’s been a good decade or so since I started learning about price/earnings ratios and whatnot, and I’ve made some mistakes, but overall it’s been a positive experience.

So without further ado, my Q&A interview with DIY Investor Magazine.

Happy investing!
