This year advisers and clients will have already experienced some market volatility and, with so many political and macroeconomic uncertainties lingering into next year, they may well be expecting more.

Many portfolios will be positioned to ride out the peaks and troughs of the stockmarket moves but some of the geopolitical noise may still be hard to ignore.

Should advisers be preparing clients and their portfolios for a recession in 2019, or might this still be some way off?

Talking Point, in association with Schroders, considers what are the biggest risks facing clients and their investment portfolios in 2019.
