The impact of Brexit, and Donald Trump's presidency are weighing heavy on investors' minds according to financial advisers. Professional investors attending the Morningstar Investment Conference in London last week revealed their clients were most concerned about the impact of UK and the US politics on their portfolios. 

Almost two years on from the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, Brexit remains a worry for investors. Particularly the impact of ongoing negotiations on the UK economy, and UK listed companies. There are further domestic worries; political turmoil and the possibility of a Jeremy Corbyn premiership.

Elsewhere, the unpredictability of Donald Trump is ruffling feathers, and for retirees, the search for income is still a real concern, as is how to ensure pension drawdown does not lead to pension poverty.
