Kenneth Shaw, 71, only started investing seriously in the last 10 years, after he reduced his working hours, and then retired from his job as a sales director for a large telecommunications company.

He explained: “I’d dabbled in investing in the past but have only really been taking a more serious interest in investments in the last six to eight years. During this time interest rates have fallen and the return I’d have got from keeping my money in the bank has plummeted. So all in all I’ve been very happy with my investments.”

Shaw his wife, who live in South London, invest in both funds and direct shareholdings, which are held in an ISA and ordinary investment account with Selftrade.
