In a tumultuous world in the wake of the political earthquakes of Brexit and the Trump Presidency, how and where should people now be investing?

UK equities appear expensive, interest rates look to be on the way up, and the market is due a correction after such a strong rise.

There are many questions:

  • Have we seen The Last Hurrah for defensive investments and income funds?
  • Are emerging markets due a further rally?
  • Are there particular sectors – infrastructure, biotech, IT – that investors should be looking at?
  • Should we rule out continental European equities, and what about cash?

Expert speakers will cut through the political and economic noise and give their view on where the markets are going and the safest havens for your money.
