This week Morningstar.co.uk is bringing you simple solutions from the experts about where you should put your money and why.

Bond-like equities are “deeply dangerous” according to revered UK equity income investor Clive Beagles. The JO Hambro Capital Management fund manager warned at the Morningstar Investment Conference in London that for too long investors had sought out bond-proxy stocks, pushing up their value and creating a bubble within the market.

“In 2014 the best performing UK stocks were those which offered a steady stream of income but no share price growth. Defensive stocks such as healthcare companies, real estate businesses and tobacco giants,” he said. “The worst performing stocks last year were cyclicals – such as commodity companies and industrials.”
