With 2016 kicking off in extremely volatile fashion, the panel dismisses the likelihood of four US interest rate rises this year while weighing up the different approaches to monetary policy. But how should investors ride the waves? Whether high yield, absolute return, European or Japanese equities, the panel will discuss where the best potential returns might lie – and suggest some areas worth avoiding.
John Lawson, Aviva
Steve Webb, Royal London
Talking a month ahead of the March Budget, our panel considers the advantages and drawbacks of the two most likely outcomes for pensions tax relief – a flat rate or an ISA-style tax treatment. Further, we suggest that immediate action should be based on certainty even ahead of March 16, describe the ongoing business opportunities awaiting advisers and lay out a plan for a simpler, more stable pensions regime.
GAM Head of UK Regional Distribution Douglas Branson gives an overview of the business and how its broad investment capabilities can help investors during varying market conditions.
Head of Financial Research John Lawson explains how Aviva has responded to pension freedoms and makes some recommendations for advisers to consider.
