  • JIC PORTFOLIO: Started on 1st January 2012. The aim is to use the power of compounding to grow the value of the portfolio over time. He holds around 25 stocks, including investment trusts, to gain overseas and thematic exposure. Many¬†of the holdings pay dividends, which are re-invested in the portfolio. He eats his own cooking – his SIPP and ISA replicates the JIC Portfolio


  • JIC FUNDS PORTFOLIO: Started on 1st July 2020. It invests only in funds (investment trusts, OEICS and ETFs). It has got off to a good start, gaining 25.6% in its first nine months, (to 31st March’ 20) v +15.0% for the FTSE All-Share and +16.6% for the FTSE All-World.

I’ve used ShareScope for over 15 years. It is an essential tool in my toolbox. It allows me to track multiple portfolios and ‘group’ together portfolios to get an overall view. It provides a record of trade history, income (it automatically credits dividends) and CGT, where applicable. I couldn’t do without it. All the portfolio views and charts on this website are screenshots from ShareScope. ¬†¬†For a special offer, Click below.

*The portfolio is not managed with particular reference to the weightings of companies in the FTSE All-Share (TR) Index or the FTSE All-World GBP (TR) Index. ¬†I do, however, consider them useful comparators.

2020′s Charities are¬†“The Back-Up Trust”¬†and “The Cure Parkinson’s Trust”
