Andrew is an invited contributor to the prestigious Economist's Forum on the FT website.

Prior to starting his own firm, Andrew was at S.G.Warburg & Co. Ltd. from 1962 to 1989 where he ran the investment management business for some years and which, by the end of his tenure, was the acknowledged market leader. This was subsequently floated off as a separate company, Mercury Asset Management, which was acquired by Merrill Lynch in 1998.


" economist with a good record in identifying bubbles...provides evidence" (Financial Times, August 5th 2009) "Mr Smithers makes his case convincingly, dismissing alternative indicators of valuation, such as the dividend yield, along the way" (The Economist, August 14th 2009) ' interesting book with many challengers to conventional thought.' (, June 2010). ' ...excellent book...' (, August 2010).
