Fidelity’s Bolton pens new investment book

Fidelity fund guru Anthony Bolton has penned a new book covering his 30-plus years in fund management.

Investing Against the Tide, covers the former special situations managers’ contrarian approach to running money and is designed to appeal those with a basic level of investment knowledge.

Bolton took on the management of the special situations fund in 1979 and has delivered an annualised return of 19.5 per cent until his decision to stand down from day-to-day fund management at the end of 2007.

The book is the second from Bolton following Investing with Anthony Bolton: The Anatomy of a Stock Market Phenomenon, which was done in tandem with Jonathan Davis in 2004.

He says: “People said that this is the book I should write and I thought that before I forget it all I should pen what are the key things I have learnt in all those years.”

The first part of the book covers Bolton principles and practices, such as analysing companies, what to look for in management and risk, before covering his reflections and lessons from running money.
