This week we’re focusing on how Brexit, Trump and a Global Recession could affect your portfolio. There are challenges ahead for the global economy but Old Mutual Global Investors' chief executive Richard Buxton feels Brexit is not one of them claiming Britain will not leave the EU. Let’s first hear from him and Senior editor Emma Wall who discussed this topic and the Morningstar investment conference in London.
But what if Brexit does happen? Will UK investors still be able to access their UK domiciled funds in the event Britain leaves the EU? The Investment Association's Guy Sears is up next to dispel the myths. Global recession fears are unfounded - but markets remain challenging for investors, particularly in Emerging Markets says JP Morgan's Stephanie Flanders up next. What Happens to Markets if Trump Becomes President? Economic Consultant for Pioneer Investments Robert Wescott says it would be "scary" for the global economy if Donald Trump becomes President of the United States. Looking more closely at the Japanese economy. We have Gold-rated Japan equities investor Andrew Rose up next who says the yen needs to stabilise in order for the prospect of corporate profits to improve in Japan.
Is it time to Hold Cash and Prepare for a Market Crash? The third longest bull market in US equities coupled with "extraordinary" intervention in financial asset markets by central banks spells recession says Sanditon's Chris Rice up next.
When Does Market Volatility Matter to Your Investment Portfolio Long-term investors should embrace volatility, says Morningstar Investment Management's Dan Kemp - as it offers opportunities not risk.
