The Apprentice Investor: An update on the portfolios of Share Radio's Apprentices
Hello and welcome to today's edition of The Apprentice Investor. Regular listeners to the show will know that our Apprentices are four members of the Share Radio team who've each been given fifteen thousand pounds of virtual money to build their own share portfolios. They have a minimum of eight stocks, which they've been buying and selling through The Share Centre for the past couple of years. Today Share Radio's Simon Rose was joined in the studio by Apprentices Alexi Phillips and Olivia Demitriades. Standing by with advice and useful observations was Share Radio's sparkling Senior Analyst Ed Bowsher.
