Didn’t get a chance to attend the Morningstar Investment Conference last week? Never fear – the Morningstar.co.uk team was on hand, meeting experts, interviewing speakers and digesting the themes so you don’t have to.

Top-rated fund managers from Jupiter, PIMCO, JO Hambro Capital Management, Troy, Schroders and M&G shared where they see the greatest investment opportunities. We covered off Europe, emerging markets, the US, UK stocks, gold and alternatives. 

Economists from JP Morgan and the University of Kent gave their view on global stock markets, encompassing Donald Trump's tax plans, life after Brexit, and the risk of another global recession.

Aberdeen Standard, BlackRock, Killik & Co and Morningstar Investment Management navigated savings and retirement, taking in the financial disparities between millennials and baby-boomers, outcome investing and what risk really means.

Throw in a former hostage negotiator, an innovation geek, a bitcoin analyst and a host of ESG forerunners and prepare for your guide to what the experts say.
