Welcome to the podcast from Morningstar UK, the leading provider of investment news, views and analysis. This week we analyse the impact of this week’s UK Budget Report and how to navigate falling global stock markets.
Let’s start with the Budget. Whilst Phillip Hammond’s announcements of tax reductions and spending measures may boost Britain’s high street retailers, the positive impact on investors is likely to be limited says Morningstar Investment Management’s Dan Kemp.
Now on to global markets. During times of uncertainty even the most experienced of fund managers get scared of volatile markets. Up next, Aberdeen Standard's Hugh Young explains his fears about a trade war are justified, but says investors should stay the course or they risk missing the recovery.
Our next guest, Michele Hardeman, Head of Global Markets for Asia Pacific for State Street, explains to our Senior International Editor, Emma Wall, how falling emerging market currencies have impacted investor confidence.
China shares have had their worst October in a decade, and the sell-off recently was the largest since January 2016 - is the fear warranted? And how does this impact the value of other emerging market countries? Morningstar Investment management’s Cyrique Bourbon is up next to explain
So how do we go about finding value in troubled Emerging markets? Our next guest, T Rowe Price's Ernest Yeung says we should look for stocks which are uncorrelated to trade war fears and US central bank policies.
FTSE and MSCI have announced plans to include more mainland China listed shares in their indices. Morningstar's Director of ETF Research in Asia, Jackie Choy, is up next to explain the impact this has for passive fund investors
Most of the money in emerging market bond tracker funds and ETFs is linked to JP Morgan benchmarks, so the bank’s plans to include Gulf nations such Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain from January 2019 will have an impact on investors tracking those indexes explains Morningstar’s Jose Garcia Zarate.
What are thematic ETF’S and why should we be wary of them? Robotics, ESG, artificial intelligence - thematic ETFs are growing in popularity. But investors should look before they leap says Morningstar's Kenneth Lamont
And that’s the end of this edition. We hope you enjoyed this programme from everyone here at Morningstar UK, thanks for listening.
