Film and television make for a wildly different kind of investment when it comes to your personal tastes and preferences. I have found that having diversified mix of movie favourites makes for great return on social investment. As a cinephile, having a good pick of block busters, indies, thrillers and pure comedy has opened up a lot of avenues of opportunity in social settings. Let's call this my version of Factor Investing.

I don’t know why it’s taken me till the age of 44 to come up with a comprehensive and detailed idea of where I spend my hard-earned cash. It’s actually rather embarrassing to put down on paper.
