Will I make any money?
There are no guarantees, but Steven Tiley’s backers made a profit in 2013 and Duncan Stewart’s investors have gained money in each of the last two years. “You are never going to retire off the profit,” admits Stewart. “Last year, the share price was £150 and the end of year dividend was £159. The year before, the share price was £100 and everyone got £257 back. That was quite a profit, but it was due to me picking up a lot of money when I represented Scotland at the World Cup.”
