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-Wordpress

 

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.

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.

Jim Mellon

Headline speaker Jim Mellon is famous for notching up the biggest ever success on the AIM market with Uramin, the company he co-founded in 2005 with $100,000 and sold in 2007 for $2.5 billion. With a substantial international property portfolio and interests in a variety of companies, particularly in the alternative energy and biotech sectors, Jim is a highly experienced and successful investor whose expert views were closely followed at last year’s Master Investor Show and will undoubtedly draw a large crowd again this year.

With 96% of 2014 attendees rating his talk Good or Excellent, he’s sure to draw big crowds again.

Richard Reed

Richard Reed is a co-founder of Innocent Drinks, the UK’s fastest growing food and drinks company and the No.1 smoothie brand in the UK. The business was started in May 1999 by Richard and two friends and now has a turnover of over £150m. Innocent has been called ‘The Ultimate 21st Century Company’ – quirky, personable, values-based and profitable and determined to remain what Reed calls a ‘big small’ company, no matter how large it grows.

Innocent drinks is not Richard’s first enterprise. In fact, Richard’s entrepreneurial career started earlier than most, when he began washing windows for his neighbours at the age of 8. Following a brief spell of selling Smurf stickers at junior school (until his teachers caught him), Richard retired from the coal-face of self-employment, aged 12. However, a summer job picking up dog biscuits in a pet food factory soon reminded Richard of the joys of working for himself, and led him to set up a summer gardening business called ‘Two Men Went to Mow’, employing his school friends.

After graduating from Cambridge University and working in advertising for four years, Richard Reed and his two college friends Jon and Adam, decided to set up a lovely fresh fruit juice company. After six months of developing recipes in their kitchen, they boys wanted to test their drinks with a wider audience. To do so, they bought £500 of fruit, turned it into smoothies and sold them from a stall at a music festival. They put up a sign that said, ‘Should we give up our jobs to make these smoothies’, and put out a big bin that said ‘NO’ and one that said ‘YES’. Fortunately, at the end of the weekend, the YES bin was full so they went to work the next day and resigned.

Innocent make a unique range of natural, healthy juices and the company now has 75% of its domestic market, sells in 10 different countries across Europe, and its products are sold in every major chain, from Sainsbury’s to Boots to Starbucks.

As well as growing Innocent, Richard Reed has been a government advisor on entrepreneurship, through round table discussions with the Prime Minister and his seat on the Small Business Council. Richard and Innocent’s awards include E&Y Young Entrepreneur of the Year, National Business Awards’ Small/Medium Business of the Year, Orange Small Business of the Year and Orange Innovative Company of the Year.

Evil Knievil

Evil Knievil, the man the Daily Mail dubbed ‘The King of the Short Sellers’, (otherwise known as Simon Cawkwell) is Britain’s most feared bear-raider. A trained accountant, he made his name exposing the fiction that were Bob Maxwell’s accounts. Evil does not give investment advice on t1ps.com but three times a week he provides his thoughts and musings in the “Evil Diaries”

John Piper

John Piper, aka the Psycho Trader, has been involved with markets since his early twenties. In the late 1980s he started to trade options full time and did so right through the Crash of 1987 – an experience that stands him in good stead for markets today. For over a decade he has been the editor of The Technical Trader, the leading newsletter in the UK for those who trade futures and options markets worldwide. John is the best-selling author of numerous trading books, including The Way To Trade, the classic work on trading psychology that gets deep into the mind of the market.

Zak Mir

Zak Mir entered the City in the early 1990s and was a derivatives broker at various companies such as Sucden, Union Cal (later part of Man Group) and Berkeley Futures.

From 2000 the growth of Technical Analysis and the opportunities presented by the Internet led to Zak being Shares Magazine’s first Technical Editor whilst also providing content to now defunct websites such as TheStreet.co.uk and UKInvest.com.

In 2001 Zak teamed up T1PS.com to found Zaks-TA.com, one of the first websites to popularise Technical Analysis in the UK and still going strong today.

Zak also provides white label research to some of the City of London’s largest retail brokers via Brand Communications (Branduk.net).
