Welcome to Money Observer’s 2020 Wealth Creation Guide - our special January issue that looks ahead to the coming year, what it could hold for investors and where the best investment opportunities are likely to be found.
It includes economic outlooks for UK, regional and global equities, as well as for bonds, property, multi-asset funds and commodities, each with a round-up of index trackers and ETFs that could be used if you want to ‘buy the whole market’ rather than using an active stockpicking approach.
For readers who favour active fund management, we also have a shortlist of fund and investment trust tips for each region and asset class from our independent expert panellists. They include ideas not only for capital growth-focused investors and for income seekers, but also for ‘wildcard’ funds that have found the environment difficult recently but could see a change of fortune in 2020.
The Wealth Creation Guide also includes features on the best prospects globally for investment income, and on the ‘unloved’ regions and asset classes that could provide great opportunities for bargain hunters as the year unfolds.
Meanwhile, if you want an insight into the perspectives of leading fund managers on the year ahead, don’t miss the original thinkers pieces - the line-up this year includes Fidelity’s Dale Nicholls on China’s growth prospects, Henderson’s Laura Foll on how the price you pay makes a huge difference to returns, and Rathbones’ James Thomson on the importance of picking great companies in 2020, among others.
Essential reading for anyone who wants an investment head-start for the Isa season and beyond.
