At the recent Lipper Expert Forum 2019 held in London, Andrew Milligan, Head of Global Strategy at Aberdeen Standard Investments, sat on our macro-economic outlook panel.
We caught up with Andrew after Expert Forum in this short "vox pop" video. Here he reviews the key economic factors of 2019 and outlines the investment strategies which worked well (and not so well) during the year.
Andrew also provides his views on what might influence markets in 2020 and gives an overview explaining Aberdeen Standard Investments's portfolio positioning.
Andrew Milligan OBE joined Standard Life Investments (now Aberdeen Standard Investments) in 2000 as Global Investment Strategist before being appointed Head of Global Strategy in January 2001.
