DIY-Investors at The Telegraph (12th February 2014)

What worries me, apart from journalists writing about investing without being investors, is that they will be exposed to the City Professionals, who will probably persuade them to invest in funds. I can only hope that they will spend time investing in their own financial education and in particular understand the erosion of their capital that professional management fees will cause. I sincerely hope that I’m wrong and that they both become true (and successful) DIY-Investors.
