Value Investing, finding Value this Month.

Obviously these ideas are not solicitations to invest, you should do your own research and get advice from a professional that can take into account your personal circumstances. I have lost money on many investments and will again in future.

It’s been a couple of months since I published my last list of things that I am finding interesting. I thought it might be useful to look at some of previous investments as some of these are correcting and I may again think about topping up these positions. The US markets still to be very frothy and I although I’m no market timer I sense with the election result in the US and the realisation that European politics is dramatically changing the market will soon break from it gentle sideways meander.

10 Tips when relocating to Russia for business.

  1. Invest in some serious cold weather clothing. Don’t mess about with the cold when relocating to Russia, buy yourself a good quality Parka and some warm shoes. You’ll be wearing them all winter so get the best you can afford and in a style you feel comfortable wearing. The super trendy Nobis, Canada Goose and Woolrich brand parkas will all keep you warm  when the temperature dips to -30 degrees. On your feet you will need insulated shoes or boots, Uggs are great as is the Sorel brand. Something that is extraordinary to experience is that in very cold weather your boots will not get wet in the snow, you will stay dry. Remember to buy warm gloves and hats and some scarves. The hood on your parka is not principally to keep the rain and snow off but to keep you warm. Most young people will wear a wool beanie and when it gets very cold pull their hood up. You can wear fur but I would suggest waiting to buy till you understand the style and how it is worn by the Russians first. When it gets really cold I also wear the super comfortable and luxurious Zimmerli wool and silk thermals. Get them!
