Investing Show: Where are the best places to invest in 2018 – and will UK shares be one of them?
Last year was a good one for investors and 2018 has started promisingly, but should we beware being overly optimistic?
Investors have been buoyed recently by markets in which everything seems to be going up, but that doesn’t mean that they should not be more choosy about where to put their money in the year ahead.
Ben Kumar, of 7IM, discusses the best places to invest for 2018 with Simon Lambert, of This is Money, and Richard Hunter, of Interactive Investor, on the latest Investing Show.
He explains why Europe, Japan and the UK look promising – and looks at how value, growth or momentum strategies differ.
Meanwhile, in the other part of the show we look at why the FTSE 100 has hit a series of record highs at the start of 2018 and whether it can continue the strong performance.
