John Baron: "Investment trusts are a superior investment option"

On this episode of the IC Interviews, editor John Hughman speaks to the magazine’s regular investment trust columnist John Baron.

A former fund manager, John has provided updates on two live investment trust based portfolios for the Investors Chronicle since 2009, one focused on growth and the other on income.

John has recently completed an updated version of his book, the Financial Times Guide to Investment Trusts: Unlocking the City's Best Kept Secret.

In this interview, John explains why he favours investment trusts, how the techniques he uses to manage his portfolios have shielded them from the worst impacts of Covid-19, and why he’s top slicing technology and taking contrarian positions in commercial property and commodities.
