Interesting article in Telegraph

Nick Train is a name that comes up regularly as one of the more successful managers in articles. He has not bought or sold a share for 4 years, and on average holds onto his shares for 18 years - obviously a fan of Buffet. Just thought this was interesting cf the many posts on swapping around regularly or panicking and selling out... compared to occasional rebalancing.

    Until recently I haven't been buying or selling either.

    I wonder if the same can be applied to a portfolio of funds rather than shares, and if so what does it suggest about rebalancing as a strategy?

    I guess picking the right shares/funds is the key here?
