Don't believe the hype

By John Roe

Overconfidence can be disastrous in investing. Too much focus on one single outlook underplays the risk of other realistic outcomes. But exploring a range of scenarios can lead to better portfolios.

With failed football dreams behind him, John applies the same level of enthusiasm to investing and how to improve outcomes by battling behavioural biases. He leads on oil research, but also gets involved in a wide range of macro topics. That love of variety also explains his craft beer fascination. Hard to shut up, he’s a regular guest on Bloomberg, a conference speaker and an LGIM Director. His analytical thinking benefits from being an Actuary with an economics degree and having previously worked as a strategist at RBS.
