Created by investors for investors, the story of Mello from David Stredder….
I have been investing for nearly four decades now and the landscape has changed dramatically from newspaper columns and teletext share prices all the way through to the superb resources we have at our disposal today… not least many of the data providers here at Mello 2018. However, I have always maintained that meeting management and ‘looking under the bonnet’ and ‘kicking the tyres’ of each company in which you see potential is vitally important.
The City and Institutional holders always appear to have access to directors whenever they required and certainly received results presentations whereas to smaller individual investors, vital for liquidity in stocks below the FTSE 350, never seemed to get the same privilege. I wanted to change the way convention so the AGMs were not seen as our one and only hour to question the management of the companies we actually owned.
