My name is John Rosier. I am a full time investor with over 30 years’ experience in the investment industry and am a regular contributor to the Investors Chronicle magazine.

The aim of this website is to be helpful, both to experienced private investors and those just setting out on their investment journey. It reports on the progress of two live portfolios. As well as showing the portfolios, I explain the rationale behind every investment decision and I comment on latest company news, portfolio strategy, topical issues and performance.

  • The “JIC Portfolio” was¬†launched on 1st January 2012. The aim of the portfolio is simple; to build up a tidy sum to provide security in my latter days. The¬†maximum number of holdings is set at 30. I use investment trusts to gain overseas and thematic exposure. Most of my holdings pay decent¬†dividends which are re-invested in the portfolio.
  • The “JIC TOP 10″ followed on 29th August 2014. It aims to produce a higher return by focusing on my best ideas. With only 10 holdings, the JIC Top 10 is much more “risky”. Any big stock moves have a far greater impact on the whole portfolio; that works both ways but in the worst case, a company going bust, the portfolio could lose 10% or more of its value.

Coming soon! A new portfolio reflecting my SIPP drawdown portfolio. The emphasis will be on steady and growing dividends and long term capital appreciation.

The money donated to Back Up between 2014 and 2016, covered the direct costs for nearly 200 people with spinal cord injury to attend Back Up’s wheelchair skills training sessions in hospital. “These training sessions are led by experienced wheelchair users and teach vital skills which help someone who is coming to terms with a life-changing injury to be more independent and feel more confident.”
