Ransley started his Analyst career with Charterhouse Tilney before joining Dresdner Kleinwort in 1996 where he became director of Retail Research for the UK and Europe.

In the role he covered stocks including Kingfisher, Marks & Spencer, DSG International, Alliance Boots, HMV, WH Smith and Signet.

In 2006 he was the top general retail analyst in the Extel rankings.

'The most seasoned investors agree that sentiment towards a company and its prospects is a key determinant of its valuation,' said Ransley.

'With my experience of analysing numerous household names, I have seen the important role that the media can play in affecting a company's prospects and share price. I would estimate that favourable sentiment can boost a company's valuation by over 30 per cent relative to its peer group.'
