Welcome to the Wealth Accumulated resource page, a list of the most trusted resources that have helped me with profitable stock market investing.

Okay, let’s kick things off.
Books still are a great place to learn all aspects of value investing and financial markets. Some of these titles I’ve read more than once.
I’ve provided a short description of why I’ve found each book an invaluable part of my own investing journey to success, hope you get out of them what I have.
The billionaire investor Warren Buffet describes it as the best book ever written about investing. It has been so useful to me that I’ve based my entire investing strategy around one of Graham’s outlined in this book and continue to use it with great success until this day.
Written by another successful investor, Peter Lynch showed me how being a consumer of household names and brands can give you an advantage over other investors. Lynch shows that if you shop at Apple, then you know how good/bad their products and customer service are and can make informed investment choices about them.
This is the follow-up book to Kiyosaki’s best-seller ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ so it contains a lot of references from that first book but with a much greater emphasis on the practicalities of obtaining financial freedom. My kids WILL read this when they’re old enough.
As mentioned this is the book preceding ‘Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quadrant’ but it is still worth a read because it documents Kiyosaki’s transition from poor to rich over his lifetime and Kiyosaki is a compelling storyteller.
Warren Buffett is the most successful stock market investor of all time. This PDF is a collection of his annual letters to his clients in which he explains his investing philosophy and how he views the financial markets. Essential reading to get an understanding of the long-term nature of value investing.
A superb text on the long-term nature of savings and wealth accumulation written in story format. The best thing about this book is the way it teaches you how to set aside a percentage from your monthly income to create financial freedom for yourself.
The most celebrated book from the FIRE movement; Financial Independence, Retire Early. I’ve on;u just got hold of a copy so I’ll update this page after I’ve read it.
Ah the internet. That never-ending machine of other people’s opinions. Fact is that if you want to become a successful stock market investor from the value school, then you need a reliable source of financial markets news to help you make informed decisions.
No one source of news is reliable but here is a list of the ones I use week in, week out.
In my opinion the best financial market news organisation in the world. They cover all of the world’s financial markets and they update their stories frequently to keep in touch with the up and downs of stock prices. I highly recommend downloading their app (iPhone or Android) which I use to keep my watch list of stocks. It’s free.
I have a subscription to the WSJ which at a heavily reduced price from an offer I saw. Its main advantage is to have an alternative world-class news source on financial markets. Plus it gives me a subscription to Jason Zweig’s newsletter called The Intelligent Investor. Its a paid app.
Yahoo Finance aggregates global financial market news in one app (iPhone and Android). This makes it super easy to find the stories of the day but can sometimes be overwhelming if you don’t curate your newsflow. Thankfully the app does this for you. It’s free.
Seen as a left-leaning ‘serious’ UK news publication, the Guardian once again shines when it comes to its app. (iPhone and Android). The business reporting for the large-cap space is excellent and is a great alternative to US alternatives. And it’s free.
Fidelity UK has some of the lowest fees on the market with zero commissions on fund trades. Perfect for dollar cost averaging the S&P 500. The app lets you create watchlists, view your portfolio valuations and buy and sell your investments.
Wealth Accumulated is built on a self-hosted WordPress website. WordPress is free, I simply pay for hosting. It means that I am able to control 90% of the look and feel of the site and I’m only limited by my own technical abilities. It’s mobile-friendly, has all the functionality and security you need as a website visitor, and the people at WordPress are always updating the software.
Siteground is a cost-effective hosting provider that comes with the ability to add SSL certificates with ease (an extra measure of site security). Email accounts, web chat for customer service, and all the bells and whistles you need.
Buffer is a social media scheduler that comes with a free plan to get you started. I use it whenever I have evergreen content to share or if I’m pressed for time. You can connect all the standard social media accounts and get analytics on how they perform. Win, win.
Over time as I come across investing and digital marketing resources, I’ll be sure to add them here.
