The other week on my Switzer TV programme, I interviewed someone I’ve known for years, legendary Australian value investor Anton Tagliaferro.

Like many of us, Anton was lamenting the fact that if you're looking for income, it's hard to know where to invest, particularly as interest rates fall. “To be honest, it's an issue people in other parts of the world have been grappling with, because you know Europe has had zero rates for a while (and their stock market hasn't exactly boomed either by the way) but Japan has had zero rates for a while, and you know Australia is sort of heading towards zero,” he said.

Investors are having to deal with interest rates at unprecedented lows, along with an unpredictable factor in one Donald Trump – the most difficult US President for investors to get a handle on!
