Welcome to the podcast from Morningstar UK, the leading provider of independent investment research.
It’s our final podcast of 2016 so what better way to finish the year off than to share our most popular content on Morningstar.co.uk - the top 10 of 2016. To get us started, at number 10 we have Old Mutual UK Alpha fund manager Richard Buxton giving his 3 stock tips.
At number 9, Chris Rice from Sanditon Asset Management, who we interviewed in May this year at our Morningstar Investment Conference in London, warns viewers to hold cash and prepare for a market crash as he believes recession looms.
It’s not surprising that one of the topics that have most concerned investors this year is Donald Trump’s victory in the US Presidential election. Coming in at number 8, Senior editor for Morningstar.co.uk Emma Wall and Dan Kemp, Chief investment Officer for Morningstar Investment Management brought us the breaking news on the election result and what it means for investors.
Back in April we interviewed Alex Wright, Manager of the Fidelity Special Situations Fund who gave us 3 under-valued stock picks, including Lloyds Bank. His interview comes in at number 7.
Brexit has been another key theme for investors in 2016 and it comes in here in 6th place. Dan Kemp brought us his interpretation of the news saying investors needed to keep cool heads amid the political and financial uncertainty.
Coming at number 5 it’s another 3 stock picks interview, this time with Gold rated investor Job Curtis who gave us three income stocks for sustainable dividends back in June.
At number 4 it’s Brexit again! This time Senior Editor Emma Wall describes how Britain's vote to leave the European Union seems to tie in with a feeling across the Western world – a rebellion against globalisation and those in power.
At number 3 Paul Swinand, Equity Analyst for Morningstar talks us through how a variety of headwinds that hit the global luxury sector have started to ease off and that some luxury goods companies are starting to look attractive again.
The popularity of ETF’s and tracker funds is soaring in the UK and our second most popular interview this year was that of Passive fund Analyst Kenneth Lamont explaining the key differences between an ETF and a tracker fund.
So, now to reveal the top spot – what Morningstar.co.uk content will be crowned the most popular of 2016? And the winner is - ‘What is a Fund?’, part of our back to basics series designed to help new investors understand the investing world.
And that’s it from the Morningstar podcast for 2016. It has been our pleasure to provide you all with news, views and education on personal investing this year.
From everyone here at Morningstar UK, have a Merry Christmas and a very happy new year. We look forward to seeing you in 2017!
