Our Speakers

Jim Mellon

Our headline speaker, Jim Mellon, is acknowledged as a master investor himself, whose investment style has become a benchmark for all aspiring investors. His experience, his failures and his huge successes make him a champion of the common man in the face of the Goliath’s of the investment world. He is able to speak to the audience in such a way that is understandable and compelling. His talk has become the high point of the show.





Nigel Farage will take time out from his General Election campaign to deliver a presentation  that will be characterized by his straight-talking style and outspoken views. This promises to be a fascinating, cutting-edge insight into the political aspects surrounding the business world from a man who will be holding considerable political power in any future British Government.



James Ferguson, former director at SBC Warburg, Desdner Kleinwort, Mitsubishi Securities and founding partner at the MacroStrategy Partnership, favourite of the Rising Stars Stage in 2014,  will give his controversial insights and Merryn Somerset-Webb editor of Money Week and author of Love is Not Enough: A Smart Woman’s Guide to Making (and Keeping) Money will again give her highly acclaimed views on investing. We are currently courting two more exciting speakers, whose names we will publish once confirmed.

Master Investor Interviews

The Rising Stars Stage

006.3 - SJH_0880


2015 will again include the hugely popular Rising Stars Stage, where exhibiting companies can reinforce their message to investors with a presentation. While all our exhibiting companies have an urgent message to confer on our attendees, this serves as a company soap box from where CEO’s can preach to a highly critical and discerning investor audience and can answer difficult questions, of which they have no prior warning. The results are electrifying!


Our Exhibitors

The companies exhibiting at Master Investor are there to talk to investors in person. In a world of media spin and regulation this gives investors the opportunity in the space of a few hours to meet with the very people who run the companies that they have invested in, or who they will invest in. This is a privilege usually afforded only to fund managers and investment bankers and gives our visitors a truly hands-on experience.

About Master Investor

Master Investor is now in its 13th year and is acknowledged as the leader in its field. Our mission is to allow investors to research, analyse and invest, and this is a goal that we achieve by presenting experienced speakers and a host of exciting companies to our visitors.  Our speakers are of the highest caliber, and all exhibiting companies have compelling messages that they wish to communicate to the investor community.

A firm believer in independence for the UK, he is a proponent of free speech and has faced considerable hostilities from his political opponents for speaking out in favour of free and fair referendums on the transfer of powers from elected politicians to the EU.

He became a founder member of UKIP in 1993 and has gone on to become the Party’s best known figure. Nigel has spent his life battling for what he believes are the best interests of this country.

No one could accuse Nigel of having an easy life. A near fatal car crash and a bout of testicular cancer in his early 20s, he almost lost his life in a plane crash on polling day 2010.

In his rare spare time he likes fishing, country sports and traditional English pubs. However, most of his time is spent travelling around the country and across the world talking about the European Union.

He has written his autobiography, Fighting Bull, and a second edition, Flying Free, was published recently.
