Alternative Investment and Collecting Books by Peter Temple

Updated on February 16, 2015

Peter Temple: Author of Finance, Trading, and Alternative Investment and Collecting Books

Peter Temple (Not to be confused with the Australian crime fiction writer of the same name) is a finance and investment author who also writes about alternative investments and collecting (coins, stamps etc.) He is highly prolific and contributes to a wide range of UK investment and finance publications, including the Financial Times, Investors Chronicle, Interactive Investor and has written many investment books.

Peter Temple is an active private investor and writes about his own investment portfolios, his rare coin and stamp collections, example share and bond portfolios. He has been working in or with the City and financial markets for about 35 years and a fund manager, investment analyst and for the last 17 years as a freelance financial journalist.

I have read many of Peter Temple's books and regularly read his articles in several publications; they are well written and explain the subject is a way that is appropriate for both a novice investor and experienced traders. Ideal reference material.

Peter Temple has just released his latest book (20th April 2010): The Handbook of Alternative Assets: Making Money from Art, Rare Books, Coins and Banknotes, Forestry, Gold and Precious Metals, Stamps, Wine and Other Alternative Assets (Available from Amazon: see below)
