Nvidia, Compounding, and me being a CEO…



This week, Nvidia became the world’s most valuable company with a market cap of $3.1 trillion.

It overtook both Microsoft and – remarkably – the combined value of all companies listed on the London Stock exchange!

Nvidia shares have benefited from huge profit growth, driven by insatiable demand for its Ai chips.

This news doesn’t necessarily signal Nvidia as a good investment (investors should do their own DD) but underlines the importance of Ai now, and going forward.

Quiet Compounding

One of my favourite writers in the investment space is Morgan Housel – author of the best-seller The Psychology of Money which is a must-read.

His latest wisdom is worth 3 mins of your time.

You can read it here.

In a nutshell:  quiet compounding is highly effective.   Know what YOU need and do what’s right for YOU.  Don’t be influenced by marketing and BS claims made by companies and individuals on social media.   Secure YOUR future, not theirs.  

Me as a CEO?

‘Brendan’ used to work here in the team as an analyst before moving on (no issues, completely mutual).  Of course, I said i’d happily provide a good reference.

So when a reference request appeared in my inbox this week, it got me thinking.

For my contact details, Brendan had stated my title as ‘CEO’.  That’s not how I describe myself.  It always sounds odd when owners of very small businesses give themselves that title!

But I could never be a true CEO because that would prevent me doing what i truly enjoy.

As a former full-time fund manager in corporate world, my job was frequently unrelated to investing.  Other activities such as compliance, management, form-filling, reporting, marketing etc often took over from what i truly enjoyed: investing.

I’m lucky that now, most of my time is doing what I truly love.  Still in investing, but now including a vital element I now realise was lacking for most of my corporate career …

That is:  making a difference to real people – providing valuable financial know-how to enhance their future security.

It’s a true privilege to do what I love and love what I do*.   And by being good at that, making a lasting difference to people’s lives.

(*inspired by Kiefer Sutherland’s tribute this week to his late father Donald Sutherland, a brilliant actor).
