STRIKE IT RICH.

THE director of Barclays Stockbrokers, Justin Urquhart Stewart, guides you through the maze of the financial markets.

SOME people think investing in engineering companies sounds unexciting, but many of the most successful companies are those that embrace the latest technology.

BBA Group is such a group, and it concentrates on three main areas. First is non-woven fabric - such as nappies and medical products - for which growth prospects are excellent.

BBA's aviation division is the world's biggest servicer of business jets, also a growing market.

The third is friction materials - brake pads for cars and trains - and the group is the world's second largest player in the field.

Profits for 1998 were pounds 165 million, and analysts expect them to rise by over 20 per cent in each of the next two years.
