I must confess I am a fan of Anthony Bolton; his impressive record on the Investment Profession is almost second to none. A fundamental, value and at times contrarian style and strategy was most of the times handsomely rewarded. But Anthony's adventure in the Oriental China didn't add up to this reputation. For what I followed of his own views about this, and since the beginning he was very sanguine regarding the prospects for the Chinese venture, he was also warning that it would be his last take on the Global Investing scene, if it wouldn't be to his and all expectations. And this same promise was actually fulfilled as Mr. Bolton announced last week his retirement.
