Investing protection: Top risks for 2012

John Addis grills the analytical team to find out what keeps them up at night, and how to prepare for it.

This time last year we published Protecting what’s yours: Top risks for 2011, a two part-series on what might go wrong and how to protect yourself against that possibility. With 529 votes at an average of 4.1, it reached second place in our top 20 stories of last year.

The two-part series listed a potential Chinese slowdown, a high Australian dollar, inflationary (and deflationary) risk and a possible fall in house prices as the major threats.
