Monday 5 February saw Wall Street’s biggest loss in 6 years. The European and Asian markets followed suit with Hong Kong’s benchmark stock indices sliding by 5 per cent. After years of unusual calm, does this signal the start of a return to volatility in the market? What is going on; and what are the prospects for markets and investors as we move into 2018?

Chris Ralph, Chief Investment Officer at St. James’s Place, will be covering the key themes – geo-political, economic and market – that are likely to influence investment outcomes during 2018 and beyond.
