After a career as an officer in the Grenadier Guards, Charlie spent 17 years as the Head of Absolute Return at HSBC Global Asset Management, managing more than £3 billion in client funds.
During his time, Charlie helped both protect and grow the wealth of scores of wealthy investors. In fact – and keeping in mind that past performance is no guide to future results – between 2003 and 2015, his fund made a cumulative return of more than 100%.
To be blunt, what Charlie Morris doesn’t know about the financial markets just isn’t worth knowing. He knows how to succeed in the financial world. And now he’s sharing that insight with Fleet Street Letter readers.
He’s known and respected as a specialist on gold, crypto-currencies and momentum investing. In fact, he’s made over 200 appearances as a guest expert on various financial television programs.
In short, he’s not an ‘armchair pundit’… he’s a battle hardened investor with real experience making money in the financial markets.

Dan Denning and The Fleet Street Letter go back a long way.
Born in Colorado, in the United States, Dan has always had a huge amount of respect for the ideas and values that have made The Fleet Street Letter so successful. His belief in free markets, sound money, personal liberty and small government have underpinned everything he’s done during 18 years in the financial publishing industry.
In 1999, he began working remotely with Lord William Rees-Mogg to publish his work in America. In 2004-5 he had the privilege of working directly with him in London.
Dan left London in 2005 to build a publishing business based in Melbourne. It’s now Australia’s biggest and most respected independent financial publishing house.
But in 2015, Dan returned to London – the heart of the financial world – to relaunch The Fleet Street Letter at a critical moment in British history.
During the early 1990’s Akhil witnessed the effects of economic recession first hand through his family’s struggling business. A combination of constrained credit and the loss of jobs impacted his and many other families greatly. Eventually these were overcome and they experienced rising prosperity during the boom years of the late 1990s and early 2000s. But when the Global Financial Crisis hit in 2007, the financial problems returned.
Struck by the fact that the GFC seemed to him to be like the events of the early 90’s repeating themselves - but with increased severity – Akhil’s passion for studying cycles really took off.
He wanted to understand why history was repeating; why there was no general awareness of this; and what people needed to know to avoid being affected by the same issues that had impacted his family. Through his research he met future business partner and good friend Phil Anderson – author of the acclaimed financial book The Secret Life of Real Estate and Banking in 2010.
Since then he has written many research papers with Phil on property, stocks and commodities. And the fruits of this collaboration are what you’ll read about in his newsletter Cycles, Trends and Forecasts!
Akhil has professional experience in audit, central government and international banking and has worked on a range of issues from reviewing large infrastructure PPP deals to helping establish the UK's £3 billion International Climate Fund. He has two Masters Degrees (in Finance and Public Policy) and a first degree in the Classics from Oxford. In 2013, he established Ascendant Strategy to produce research that helps investors make better investment decisions based on an understanding of the key economic and financial cycles driving markets. He is also himself a stock and property investor and so puts into practice what he researches.
Each and every week you’ll get powerful knowledge of the cycles he studies. The primary focus is on the property market, but you’re also going to get information that will help you understand the stock market and how to read charts; plus what’s going on with interest rates; all you need to know about money and banking; and how politics affects the economic cycle (and how it does not).

But his real talents lie in uncovering, researching and investigating the world’s most revolutionary technology companies and trends before they hit the big time. He predicted the rise of 3D printing, the arrival of augmented reality and most notably the incredible shift to self-driving cars and artificial intelligence.
He travels the world meeting and engaging with inventors, founders, innovators and the most influential people in tech. His unique combination of financial acumen with an unwavering devotion to the most cutting edge technology makes Sam one of the most prodigious talents in our stable of Editors.
