Investing for retirement after coronavirus

Covid-19 is the sort of black swan event everyone theoretically prepares for but nobody expects. So how does one structure a retirement portfolio to take account of such events as a global pandemic and the resultant economic shut-down?

In this special edition of the FTAdviser Podcast, sponsored by Scottish Widows, Simoney Kyriakou, the editor of Financial Adviser, examines how pension investors can get the income they need from their portfolio, given the UK has punishingly low interest rates, dividends have been slashed and suspended, open-ended property funds remain gated and we just do not know what is around the corner.
