Below are some of the lessons I have learned or have been reinforced during these years.
The concept of Conkers' Corner is very simple yet extremely educational and beneficial for all: the participants in the podcasts and interviews since I started in May 2016 have included shrewd investors/traders, ISA millionaires, high net worth individuals, business leaders, CEOs, highly respected fund managers and investment writers.
