Tech stocks bounce back, smaller company investing, China’s dominance of emerging market indices and should you be allowed early pensions access to buy a home?
This week’s podcast looks at the latest action on global markets including a new rally in US tech stocks and how the UK’s AIM market is soaring ahead. Dan has updates on ASOS, Barratt, Bunzl, Round Hill Music and an Italian Instagram star hoping to float herself on a stock market.
AJ Bell’s Laith Khalaf talks about the appeal of investing in smaller companies. His colleague Ryan Hughes also joins the show to debate whether China is becoming too big in emerging market indices and if it should be viewed as a standalone entity from an investment perspective.
Finally, Tom and Dan chat about a new proposal to let younger people dip into their pension savings to help them get onto the housing ladder and all the problems that might cause.
