The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Why are ESG funds underperforming?
Myron Jobson of Interactive Investor discusses ESG or ethical investing funds with Simon Rose. He explains that, because green -orientated companies tend to be relatively new, they have suffered from the general rotation from growth to value stocks. For obvious reasons, they are underweight in the energy and defence sectors which have done well of late. He points out, though, that ESG funds have outperformed over the longer-term and suggests that investors be patient and not panic.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The three phases of bear markets
With even commodities now being dragged down by recession worries and fears of demand destruction, Russ Mould of A J Bell looks at the three phases of bear markets. He believes we might be about to enter the second phase but that we are still some way off the worst. Investors should concentrate on the preservation of capital, avoiding undue risk and perhaps shedding investments they aren't too confident about.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Stress test your portfolio & wait for opportunities
Russ Mould of A J Bell points out that while central bankers may claim the war in Ukraine is responsible for inflation surging, it's their long-standing zero-interest-rate policy that has stacked the combustible material up ready to be ignited. For investors, the aim must be to preserve capital as markets react. Stress test your portfolio and think about sectors like banks (already pricing in recession) and real assets. There will be opportunities to come for those who have cash to hand.

The Financial Outlook for Personal investors: The ECB and interest rates & oil prices
Victoria Scholar of Interactive Investor looks at the latest from the ECB, hinting that it will increase rates by 25 basis points in July and ending its asset purchase programme. With the price of filling a tank now hitting £100, she discusses what it means not just for households but also businesses. Which can pass on rising costs? As well as oil and commodity companies, she suggests that it could be worth looking at the luxury brands; they seem fairly immune, as long as there's no recession.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: How to invest when central bankers get it wrong
Russ Mould of A J Bell discusses those central bankers, past and present, admitting their mistakes on inflation and demonstrating that they're as fallible as any of us. He points out that with markets rising for years, investors were lulled into a false sense of security. He thinks investors should now be concentrating on valuation of shares. With the bid for Countrywide, he thinks it could be worth looking at builders and perhaps also at banks, both sectors currently out of favour.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The Chancellor's cost-of-living measures
Victoria Scholar of Interactive Investor discusses with Simon Rose Chancellor Rishi Sunak's measures to alleviate the effects of inflation on the more vulnerable members of the public. She comments on the U-turn over the oil producers' windfall tax; an Interactive Investor poll found people were concerned, not just about their own investments, but what it might mean for their pensions. The markets, however, appear to have priced the tax in in advance.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: How far will central banks go before markets crack?
Russ Mould of A J Bell talks to Simon Rose about representatives of the US Federal Reserve talking up interest rates, while big American retailers like Walmart and Target have demonstrated the problems they are already facing as inflation rises. So far they don't seem to be passing on all the price rises they face, while stock appears to be piling up. For Russ, the question now is what central banks will do and how far they can go before markets break.
