What does a defensive portfolio look like in the current environment?

The market turbulence across a variety of assets over the past year or so has raised the question of where investors should go to seek shelter from the storm.

This week FTAdviser's investment editor David Thorpe is joined by Ian Barnes, chief investment officer at Netwealth, David Jane, multi-asset fund manager at Premier Miton, and Ben Gutteridge, director of the model portfolio service at Invesco, to find out.

They discuss the role of government bonds in general and gilts in particular given recent volatility and the prospects for investing if inflation stays higher for longer.
