While many investors are ploughing money into racy fintech start-ups or emerging market shares, recently retired Mark Chadwick prefers a cautious approach.

While Mark, admits he has hasn’t made “astonishing returns”, he believes his slow and steady strategy has stood him in good stead over the years. “I do have some regrets – I lived and worked in London in the 80s but didn’t get on the housing ladder there – but being risk averse means I haven’t had any disasters.”
