Merryn Talks Money

Losing money is the price of making money

Dec. 16, 2022

Tom Slater, co-manager of the UK’s most popular investment trust, Scottish Mortgage, joins this week's episode of Merryn Talks Money. Shares in the trust are down 40% year-to-date. What went wrong? Maybe nothing, says Slater. If you want to get real growth, you need to be prepared to pay an “unreasonable price” to get it, and then you need to be prepared for a lot of volatility before any fortunes are made. Plus, senior reporter John Stepek is back -- this time to talk about the British property market.
