As a senior analyst for investment platform Hargreaves Lansdown, Laith Khalaf is frequently quoted in the media with his views on stocks, funds and market trends.

This research is often focused on news-led events: from the Brexit vote, to a FTSE 100 company publishing their annual results or issuing a profits warning. But when it comes to investing his own money Khalaf says it pays to ignore the “noise” of day-to-day events and take a longer-term view.

He says: “It’s shouldn’t really come as any surprise the learn that the investments that have performed the best in my portfolio are the one I’ve held the longest.”
