Ed Bowsher speaks to top US fund manager, Meb Faber, as well as David Stevenson from ETFstream to find out where markets may go in 2019. Both Meb and David think that most US shares are too expensive while the UK is much more attractive. We also find out which parts of the Japanese market are cheap, and look at which emerging markets to avoid or invest in.
After the market wobble three weeks ago, it looks like share prices will probably be more volatile in 2018. How should investors position their portfolios to cope? Should they put money into ‘diversifiers’ like Gold? And can ETFs help? In the latest edition of the Big Call, Ed Bowsher finds out by chatting to Oliver Smith of IG Smart Portfolios and Sean Corrigan of Cantillon Consulting.
Will markets carry on rising this year? Is Gold the best insurance policy against something going wrong? And how will the ETF industry evolve? Will ESG be the big theme of the year? Ed Bowsher finds out from James Butterfill of ETF Securities, Adam Laird of Lyxor, David Stevenson of ETFstream and John Davies of S&P Dow Jones.
