The Independent Online
JIM SLATER, the legendary stock market guru, is to write a weekly column on the principles and practice of investment, beginning next Thursday in the Independent. He will draw on a lifetime's experience of stock valuation and analysing market trends, and will from time to time recommend shares that meet his demanding criteria.

When Slater Walker Securities collapsed in 1975, Slater became 'a minus millionaire'. Since then he has repaid his creditors and rebuilt his personal fortune.

A chartered accountant with a gift for analysing balance sheets, Slater recently published a book on investment, The Zulu Principle, which has been acclaimed by reviewers and investing professionals alike.

Lord Hanson has said: 'Jim Slater has always had a remarkable ability to understand and forecast the stock market.'

Jim Slater's column will be essential reading for the investment community and for savers interested in the stock market.
