Navigating the news is no easy task for investors; how do you translate geopolitical risks, technological advancements and yet another election into what it means for your portfolio?

Last week, the Morningstar Investment Conference brought together some of the greatest investing minds from top asset managers Fidelity, JO Hambro, Jupiter and Neptune alongside ex-ministers, trade bodies and political commentators.

Hot topics of conversation included what is driving global economics, healthcare stocks, disruptive technology and fund fees. We also asked whether pension freedoms had been a success, considered what risk really is to investors and discussed that Brexit court case.

We bring you the best of the conference all this week – with exclusive interviews and coverage from our editorial team.
