Published on 10 October 2018
With the economy chugging along nicely, and equity markets grinding higher, it’s been pretty smooth sailing for investors in recent years. But there’s one important risk that has the potential to derail the rally: President Trump. Though the potential problems are well known by markets, Troy Angus, Head of Large Caps at Paradice Investment Management, believes there’s a real risk that tariffs could have a significant effect on the economy.
