A Bit About Our Speaker!
Gill Fielding is a self made millionaire and mother who featured in C4’s first “Secret Millionaire” series and she now works with James Caan among others in his Entrepreneurs Club.
Having started life in a poor family in East London Gill now lives in luxury in Sussex with her husband, three children and five cats. Here are Gill’s secrets to creating wealth:
a) Property. Gill’s approach to property investing is to have two core strategies which are: basic capital appreciation by refurbishing and perhaps developing large up market properties, and forced appreciation with income on small buy to let flats. Added to that Gill likes to keep a balance in the portfolio by always including other strategies and consequently Gill also has properties overseas (America and Spain), reversionary property, conversion projects and anything that falls into the portfolio under the creative finance banner.
b) Equities. Gill’s strategy with equities is a more passive and traditional one because her time resource is allocated to the other two lanes of the motorway. Consequently the share portfolio is a buy and hold strategy with shares bought for high yield and strong fundamentals.
c) Business. At the moment Gill and her family own 7 businesses. The business wealth is created in two main sectors: firstly, education and training and secondly, finance and credit. This takes advantage of Gill’s two core skills.
As well as the above Gill is also a Chartered Accountant and a qualified teacher and coach. Gill manages the Wealth Club and she is also working with Nightingale Conant to produce wealth awareness materials. Gill is also one of the 9 millionaires who created the Money Club, which provides information for aspiring millionaires.
