Markets 2018: Home or Overseas – Where to from here?

20th March 2018 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am

Event Navigation

The investment climate in 2018 is a complex one, with unpredictable Brexit headwinds and constant uncertainty in the United States under President Trump.

What does the geopolitical landscape mean for investors? How will Brexit impact on investments close to home – and should we be listening to global experts who tell us they see more upside in emerging markets, Europe and the far east than the US?

Should we be looking to the far east to find safer havens for our money, with investments in Asia out-performing the west dramatically? The rapidly-expanding middle-class in India and south-east Asia is helping countries generate big gains for investors, and this looks set to continue.

Hear from a range of experts, including an analysis of the opportunities presented by far east markets – and some thoughts on hot investment tips closer to home.
