Investing your money always come with risk.  This month alone, we’ve seen how geopolitical shocks can spook the markets and sending the price of gold to a six-year high of almost $1,600 an ounce. Last year the US-China trade dispute also took its toll on the markets, along with the never-ending Brexit saga in the UK. Now, markets are trying to absorb what the coronavirus outbreak means.

So how should investors position their portfolio in volatile times? 

Alice Haine, the personal finance editor of The National, is joined by Andy Scott, a video journalist at The National. Later we’ll be joined by Stuart Ritchie, a director and chartered financial planner with the global wealth advice company AES International. Also, we’ll hear from Steve Cronin, founder of Dead Simple Saving, who keeps investing in a portfolio of low-cost index-funds no matter what is happening in the world.
