AN EYE ON THE LONG TERM
Written on the 29 July 2010
Like his towering 192cm frame, Steve Wilson’s priority growth fund stands high above the rest when it comes to outperforming the ASX, but since listing in 2007 Wilson HTM Limited (WIG) has lost more than a third of its share price. As a fourth generation investor he knows how speculation can change and always has his eye on the next big trend, having floated companies like Suncorp in 1988 and Arrow Energy in 2000.
He talks to Brisbane Business News about risk, success and where he’s investing for the future.
STEVE WILSON remembers the time of the ‘big bang’ in Australian financial circles when the Hawke Government floated the currency, reduced protectionism and opened the doors for foreign banks to come on the scene.
