Welcome to Spotlight Ideas - Stephen Pope

If being dependent implies one has to rely upon the will and direction of others, then by implication an opinion, thought or view is never freely expressed.

At Spotlight Ideas the thought process is shaped by values that are rooted by a belief in free markets and entrepreneurial spirit as the best tools for economic success.

The opinions and analysis that one will find in any piece of work produced by this platform are not shaped by being keen to secure the next deal or follow the latest fashion.

Spotlight Ideas was established so that analytical work will see a situation and say it as it is. This way, common sense and continuity prevail.

As Managing Partner, I have worked in finance since 1982 in clearing and investment banking. So it is fair to say that have got the miles on the clock. I have had my share of success and disaster; the reader will therefore be aware from the get go that Spotlight Ideas will not get every call right and not always pick an idea that affords the greatest economic return.

This is not a platform for cliché nor will it hide from making outspoken propositions, however, respect for any official office, elected or appointed will always prevail.
