What is The Desert Island Investor?

The Desert Island Investor podcast is a series of podcasts that document the experiences and strategies of private investor Mark Atkinson. Mark's long-term investments have enabled him to become financially independent and to retire at the comparatively early age of 53.

The stocks that Mark reviews on this channel are from his real portfolio and not a 'virtual' portfolio, so these are genuine win-some, lose-some stories.

We hope that you'll also enjoy our regular feature 'Question in a Bottle' where Mark answers listeners' questions about investing.
