About the Author

Despite holding positions of Professor of Investment and Professor of Corporate Finance, Glen Arnold concluded that academic life was not nearly as much fun (nor as intellectually stimulating) as making money in the markets. As a wealthy investor in his fifties, he now spends most of his time running his equity portfolio and a property development company from an office in the heart of rural Leicestershire, far from the noise of the City of London.

His main research focus explores the question, 'What works in investment?', drawing on the ideas of the great investors, academic discoveries and corporate strategic analysis - see While he used to teach on this subject in the City, he would now rather concentrate on actual investment analysis, but does explain his investment choices and discusses investment ideas at

He is the author of the UK's bestselling investment book and bestselling corporate finance textbook.
