Accountant David Lawson says he has been an “unsophisticated investor” for decades. But as he is now in his early 60s he is looking to take a more structured approach to his savings and investments.

He says: “I first invested in the 1980s, and bought into a number of the privatisation shares, including British Gas and BT (BT.A). I also worked for Shell for many years and invested in a number of the share save schemes they ran.”

As a result Lawson ended up with a sizeable holding in Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB).
