Anthony Ellender has been investing for more than 30 years. He is now retired, but his investment strategy has not changed significantly: he likes to invest in good quality shares and investment trusts that pay a decent dividend.

Ellender says: “I am a long-term investor. I’m not looking to buy and sell shares on a regular basis or trade them. I want to hold investments that have the potential to grow over the long term.”

He continues: “My first investments were when I was working overseas. I invested on a monthly basis into a few global investment trusts, such as Foreign & Colonial (FRCL) and Alliance Trust (ATST).”
