The start to 2022 was a rocky one for equities, with the MSCI World index losing 14 per cent year to date.While recent weeks have provided some respite for equities, with most markets rebounding to some extent, continued high inflation and rising interest rates mean equity investors could continue to experience something of a rollercoaster ride, with markets struggling to price in the changing economic circumstances.This week FTAdviser contributing editor David Thorpe is joined by James Thomson, manager of the Rathbone Global Opportunities fund, John Moore, senior investment manager at Brewin Dolphin, and Jason Borbora-Sheen, manager of the Ninety One Diversified Income fund.They discuss whether equity prices are pricing in the range of macro-economic outcomes, whether sectors such as tech have fallen as far as they can and the challenges of finding defensive stocks.The FTAdviser Podcast is the podcast for financial advisers, brought to you by FTAdviser.

James Thomson is the Managing Partner at Equity Value Advisors, where he supports private equity and branded product leaders with due diligence and strategy consulting to accelerate equity value through eCommerce. He is a Board Member and Investor in Mamenta, Davinci Micro Fulfillment, and MAVI.io. Before his current roles, James was the Chief Strategy Officer at Buy Box Experts, a company that offers premium Amazon services to medium-sized and large-sized brands around the world to optimize and grow their businesses.  James continues to immerse himself in the world of Amazon issues. Before Buy Box, he served as the Business Head of Amazon Services — a division of Amazon responsible for recruiting 10s of 1000s of sellers annually to the marketplace. He also served as the First Account Manager for Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). Before Amazon, James was a management consultant and banker. In this episode… When it comes to the eCommerce M&A (mergers and acquisitions) space, investing in Amazon aggregator brands can be profitable. Yet, these collectors often lack the strategies to manage and scale their companies effectively, resulting in debt and profit loss. So, how can you facilitate the aggregator business model to optimize your portfolio? When acquiring a portfolio company, you must first develop an M&A strategy to maximize profit. This requires analyzing your portfolio and the price point to determine if the acquisition is right for you. When rebuilding a brand after purchase, it's essential to recruit strong operational teams that understand Amazon's policies and growth prospects. By strategically preparing for your investment and developing the appropriate standard operating procedures, you can leverage aggregators for your portfolio. In this episode of The Digital Deep Dive, Aaron Conant talks with James Thomson, the Managing Partner at Equity Value Advisors, about the current Amazon aggregator market. James explains the requirements and challenges of the aggregator business model, strategies for optimizing your investment portfolio, and how to drive growth in acquired companies.

James Thomson is the former Chief Strategy Officer at Buy Box Experts, a company that offers premium Amazon services to medium-sized and large-sized brands around the world to optimize and grow their businesses. While at Buy Box, James supported brand executives with issues of channel governance, branding governance, online growth strategies, and pricing standards. James continues to immerse himself in the world of Amazon issues. Before Buy Box, James served as the Business Head of Amazon Services — a division of Amazon responsible for recruiting 10s of 1000s of sellers annually to the marketplace. He also served as the First Account Manager for Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). Before Amazon, James was a management consultant and banker. In this episode… The emergence of Buy with Prime has created a competitive selling environment. Direct-to-consumer (DTC) brands that sell on Amazon Prime are outperforming those that use alternative platforms such as Shopify. So, how can you optimize your selling channel to serve your consumers better and compete with Amazon sellers? It's essential to offer your consumers the same shipping times they expect from Amazon. To achieve this, you must develop a long-term eCommerce strategy that maximizes your fulfillment networks and leverages quick and efficient delivery methods. By transitioning from third-party logistics companies (3PLs) to a more automated distribution system, you can successfully sell, fulfill, and deliver your products without relying on Amazon fulfillment.   In today's episode of The Digital Deep Dive, Aaron Conant talks with James Thomson, former Chief Strategy Officer at Buy Box Experts, to discuss developing an eCommerce strategy to outperform your competitors. James shares how DTC brands can maximize their fulfillment centers to compete with Amazon Prime sellers, the challenge of using Buy with Prime, and how to optimize shipping to your consumers.

Giacomo Leopardi, (born June 29, 1798, Recanati, Papal States—died June 14, 1837, Naples), was an Italian poet, scholar, and philosopher whose outstanding scholarly and philosophical works and superb lyric poetry place him among the great writers of the 19th century.A precocious, congenitally deformed child of noble but apparently insensitive parents, Giacomo quickly exhausted the resources of his tutors. At the age of 16 he independently had mastered Greek, Latin, and several modern languages, had translated many classical works, and had written two tragedies, many Italian poems, and several scholarly commentaries. Excessive study permanently damaged his health: after bouts of poor vision, he eventually became blind in one eye and developed a cerebrospinal condition that afflicted him all his life. Forced to suspend his studies for long periods, wounded by his parents' unconcern, and sustained only by happy relationships with his brother and sister, he poured out his hopes and his bitterness in poems such as Appressamento della morte (written 1816, published 1835; “Approach of Death”), a visionary work in terza rima, imitative of Petrarch and Dante but written with considerable poetic skill and inspired by a genuine feeling of despair.Two experiences in 1817 and 1818 robbed Leopardi of whatever optimism he had left: his frustrated love for his married cousin, Gertrude Cassi (subject of his journal Diario d'amore and the elegy “Il primo amore”), and the death from consumption of Terese Fattorini, young daughter of his father's coachman, subject of one of his greatest lyrics, “A Silvia.” The last lines of this poem express the anguish he felt all his life: “O nature, nature, / Why dost thou not fulfill / Thy first fair promise? / Why dost thou deceive / Thy children so?”Leopardi's inner suffering was lightened in 1818 by a visit from the scholar and patriot Pietro Giordani, who urged him to escape from his painful situation at home. At last he went to Rome for a few unhappy months (1822–23), then returned home for another painful period, brightened only by the 1824 publication of his verse collection Canzoni. In 1825 he accepted an offer to edit Cicero's works in Milan. For the next few years he travelled between Bologna, Recanati, Pisa, and Florence and published Versi (1826), an enlarged collection of poems; and Operette morali (1827; “Minor Moral Works”), an influential philosophical exposition, mainly in dialogue form, of his doctrine of despair.Lack of money forced him to live at Recanati (1828–30), but he escaped again to Florence through the financial help of friends and published a further collection of poems, I canti (1831). Frustrated love for a Florentine beauty, Fanny Targioni-Tozzetti, inspired some of his saddest lyrics. A young Neapolitan exile, Antonio Ranieri, became his friend and only comfort.Leopardi moved to Rome, then to Florence, and finally settled in Naples in 1833, where, among other works, he wrote Ginestra (1836), a long poem included in Ranieri's posthumous collection of his works (1845). The death that he had long regarded as the only liberation came to him suddenly in a cholera epidemic in Naples. Leopardi's genius, his frustrated hopes, and his pain found their best outlet in his poetry, which is admired for its brilliance, intensity, and effortless musicality. His finest poems are probably the lyrics called “Idillii” in early editions of his poetry, among which is “A Silvia.” One English translation of his prose works is James Thomson's Essays, Dialogues, and Thoughts (1905). Among many translations of Leopardi's poetry are R.C. Trevelyan's Translations From Leopardi(1941) and J.-P. Barricelli's Poems (1963).From https://www.britannica.com/biography/Giacomo-Leopardi.For more information about Giacomo Leopardi:“Giacomo Leopardi”: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/giacomo-leopardi“Why read the nihilistic work of Giacomo Leopardi today?”: https://aeon.co/essays/why-read-the-nihilistic-work-of-giacomo-leopardi-today

“Doctor Who” is back and so are we, for part one of this season’s six-episode-long epic story. As is so often true for multi-part Doctor Who adventures, it’s actually hard to judge how it went from a single episode! But we try our best to identify all the dangling threads in episode one, from men in hats to a surprisingly un-chilly Arctic Circle to a tiny house that puts one in the mind of The Master even if he’s not anywhere to be found! Also, we discuss if this sort of storytelling is what “Doctor Who” in a modern context should look like. Jason Snell with James Thomson.
