Now most of us have picked our shares, it will be interesting to see how we go. If you didn't get an opportunity to pick a share, no problem. Just pick one at the next meeting. Thanks to Morgan for setting up the trading game.
A couple of interesting out-takes from last meeting.....based on the share picks it seems we are weighted towards the IT sectors, so let's hope it performs well. It was also interesting to see the different risk profiles (conservative vs aggressive) and people's preference for different approaches to analysis (pure fundamental, technical, mixed).
Finally, the break out session went particularly well, where everyone got an opportunity to have a say, rather than listening to me bable on, I suggest we keep the breakouts as a regular part of the meetings.
I have been in contact with Danica Pension who has agreed to speak at a meeting, just trying to find out if they can do it on 4th (now confirmed). I have also had a chat with Saxo bank and expect that they will also speak at one of our next meetings, and I'm currently speaking with Nordea.
