Overview

Stock markets are peaking. Dividend yields are puny. Income funds have let us down. Emerging markets have bounced back, but fears about China's debt bubble are growing. And did we mention world politics? Risk is everywhere and returns are hard to find. So what's an investor to do? 

In this event, the third in the series of FT Money Investment Forums, experts from Seven Investment Management and the Financial Times presented their views about where markets will go next, and how to separate short-term fears from long-term investment goals.

In association with (1)

We are 7IM, a straightforward investment management business that aims for more stability and predictability over the long term, so the amount you need has a better chance of being there when you need it.

We set up the business in 2002 because we couldn’t find an investment management service we’d be happy to use ourselves. So we invest alongside you too and we now have £12bn under management.

And we’re careful on cost and big on service; it’s a common sense approach that’s surprisingly hard to find.
