Pocketful of Dirhams: How to build a smart portfolio in times of crisis

Ken Fisher, the billionaire founder of Fisher Investments, advises investors to embrace fear

As if rising interest rates and the cost-of-living crisis aren’t enough for investors to worry about these days.

Host Felicity Glover talks to Ken Fisher, the billionaire founder, executive chairman and co-chief investment officer of Fisher Investments, who advises investors to embrace fear to hedge against global uncertainties.
