Curious Investor Behaviour & Investment Fundamentals

An eclectic collection of content on the fundamentals of investing and lessons learnt over the years – with input from those who spend the time analysing the companies through to those who communicate the message of what we do to our clients, the investors and advisers.

In addition, we encourage you to discover our timeless blue and red booklets, ‘Curious Investor Behaviour’ and ‘Reflections on Investment’.  These booklets have been a staple of Platinum’s communications for over 20 years, finding an audience with investors and advisers alike; scribed by Platinum’s founder Kerr Neilson, these take a look at the classic, long term behavioural traits of investing.
