Covid-19 has created challenges for performance and fundraising in the short term, but the longer-term prospects are strong and the capital shift to alternatives will continue, says Amundi Asset Management.

Surrey has been labelled Britain’s inheritance tax capital by a national newspaper, the county southwest of London where the average UK inheritance tax (IHT) bill is £234,000 ($303,000).
