Mick Green, a retired company director, has built up a substantial portfolio of investment trusts. He says: “I’ve always been interested in investments, but when the engineering company I worked for was sold 15 years ago, it enabled me to focus more on this.”

He invested the capital raised from this sale in a portfolio of trusts and funds. Since then he’s been looking to grow this capital, to ensure it provides a reliable income stream to supplement his workplace pension and State Pension.

Retired investor Mick Green and his wifeGreen says it was a combination of low charges, plus superior performance that made him look more closely at investment trusts.
