Shares, oil, Brexit, and whatnot

It’s been an interesting few weeks for anyone with investment interests in things like the price of oil, individual shares, Bitcoin, and anything else Trump or Brexit related. With my own investments, nothing outside of the ordinary happened – which is just how I like...

Read on if you’re a bit lazy

The Utterly Unregulated Investment Ideas booklet is almost unbelievably specific about the next steps readers need to take to get involved with any of the ideas contained within it. It’s perfect for the lazies, and for those who want to develop a plan for how they...

Short, medium, and long-term planning

…Without an advisor asking you to part with thousands of pounds in sight. Yes, believe it or not dear readers, you can do your own short, medium, and long-term financial planning for yourself. All you need is a spreadsheet. Stick in your current income and outgoings,...

Maybe just don’t book it

I think the slogan for Thomas Cook used to be: “Don’t just book it, Thomas Cook it.” Which makes little to no sense, but is at least memorable. If you’ve found a holiday through them and you’re considering booking, you might want to think again as they seem to think...

Curating content is key

Case in point. I have breakfast with my kids every morning more or less. As I don’t trust my Spotify playlists regarding the odd F-bomb, or to scare them with some heavy rock - we listen to the radio. A few days ago, Radio X ran an advert promoting a new podcast. As...

I inadvertently mentioned the one percenters!

Which means if Jeremy Corbyn reads these emails, he won’t like them. I mentioned yesterday how 99% of people won’t understand that here in the UK every single adult has the ability to earn tax-free income. It’s true, achievable, and numerous professional investors are...

Tax-free income just has a nice ring to it

Following on from yesterday’s email the beauty of the strategy I’ve been putting together (to fully implement should Labour get in), is that it has the ability to generate unlimited tax-free income. Lies! Surely that’s impossible! Is what 99% of the people reading...

They were right about the whales and dolphins

This is a line from the ace song Perseverance by 90s indie band Terrorvision. I have no idea what it means, but the song always makes me smile as it reminds me of my daughter moshing to it in our kitchen when she was a year old. Apparently they were right about this,...

What’s riskier than piloting the Millennium Falcon?

Relying on a Solo (ahem) income stream, that’s what. In 2013 my family and I upped and left the expensive South East of the UK and bought a four-bedroom house in a nice little market town in North Yorkshire for a couple of grand less than we sold our two-up-two-down...

The small group doors they are a’closin

There are a load of opportunities to invest in property crowdfunding these days, however those that are brought to the small group will be so carefully curated that it’s why the group’s numbers need to be limited. Now I’m not saying that because they’re carefully...

Too much diversifying will kill you

Big fan of Queen, the video I’m kinda referencing is well worth a re-watch. Now I’m a big believer in diversifying your investments – especially if all you currently do is stick the maximum into your pension every month and hope for the best. However there should be...

A lesson in poor Binancial management

Little play on words for the crypto fans there. I sincerely hope that you get a load of value just by being on the free daily email list dear readers. One of the benefits is that every so often I will update you on one of my own alternative investments, and today it’s...

Welcome to Unicornsville

Population, those who invested early and made their fortune. But where the surrounding slums are made up of those who thought companies that make massive losses but are worth billions will always go up in value. This week, the Unicorniverse has possibly reached...

A new property investment deal went live yesterday

I know I said these won’t be coming to Guerrilla Investors consistently or every week, but… Those smarties who have successfully joined my small group will very soon be told about a new deal in the west central Lowlands of Scotland. Eight-month term with a first...

Twelve point checklist

There are numerous benefits available to those who join the small group of High Net Worth Individuals and Sophisticated Investors who will be hearing about property crowdfunding deals over the coming months, and one of these is getting my twelve point checklist. It’s...

Safe as houses

Nothing to do with a stable UK government, instead I mean actual houses. You know, the sort that haven’t been built at nearly a fast enough pace in recent years here in the UK. The sort of investment that is favoured by investors all over the world, because, you...

How deep do your pockets need to be

You might be surprised to hear, not very - however also not surprisingly the better returns are often found when you get into a five-figure investment and above. Some of the investments I will bring to the small group allow people to get involved with as little as...

First dibs is what you’re getting

Probably the best thing about the boom in property crowdfunding is that is gives normal investors (but not always retail investors) the ability to invest in projects which only five or so years ago were only available to ultra high net worth individuals or financial...

Tell me the returns!

Feel free to shout that in your head a la Jerry Maguire (just maybe don’t do it out loud on a packed train). So yesterday I told you how I ended up investing in property crowdfunding a couple of years ago – yes I actually put my own money into the things I write...

All our roads led to property crowdfunding

Here’s a little story about how I came to invest in property crowdfunding… My wife and I came into a substantial inheritance a couple of years ago. I had always wanted to ‘get into property’ and saw this is a great opportunity to do so. A friend of a friend went to a...
