"I’ve known Ian for 5 years now I think. What started as a fairly professional standard advisor client relationship has now morphed to a warm candid funny partnership, and that’s testament to Ian’s demeanour, his attitude to his clients - it’s never a sell; his openness to explore alternative options to his own advice is a real asset. He is calm. Professional. Curious. Well read. Always comes prepared. Very patient. (I can be very disorganised and he just rolls with it!). He approaches his clients with professional warmth and I’ve really enjoyed working with him for the past 5 years. You will be in great hands with Ian!"

To answer the second part of the question is easier. In short, it seems to have led to better returns than the general stock market over a long period of time and is investing in its most simplest form.
"Corona Crash" - Stocks, economies and now oil suffer from a virus. Part 1 of 2
The past few weeks have been crazy, and expensive! Governments are spending Billions and investors have lost Trillions. This is Part 1 of 2, as I want to get this out there. So quickly....
Will the bull market continue or is this the start of the bear market?
2017 saw the the S&P 500 return +21.80% and the start of this year, the raging bull continued on up. However, the upward surge was abruptly interrupted at the end of January after hitting a high on the 26th...
What has historically happened to the S&P 500 after a 4% one day drop?
Warren Buffett once said "What we learn from history is that people don't learn from history". He was referring to fear and greed and the most common mistake repeated consistently - thinking that "this time it's different"!
To quote Donald Rumsfeld, the former US defence secretary: “There are known knowns. These are things that we know. There are known unknowns.
will the 'Greferendum' lead to a 'Grexit'? - what next for Greece?
Greece defaulted on its payments back to the IMF and joined the ranks of Zimbabwe and Sudan, and its European bailout expired. Not a great day!
