Author: Simon Hedger

Chartered Engineer, SME owner and enthusiastic small cap investor. Started investing in 1998 but only seriously since 2010. UK small caps, typically sub £100m mcap, often sub £50m. Always looking for capable, trustworthy and engaging management teams. I am not an accountant or CFA and believe that understanding a few simple financial metrics is sufficient to invest well when combined with quality management. Qualitative bias and love researching. Share and Learn. Warren Buffett fan. @vodkaquickstep
