    U.S. Lipper Award winners bet big on Brexit, global slowdown

    Japanese automakers, a U.S. municipal bond insurer caught up in the Puerto Rican debt scandal, and UK's largest online classified advertising site for used cars are among the top picks by equity fund managers who received a U.S. Lipper Fund Award in New York on Thursday night. The wide swath of investment ideas partly reflects the unsteady global stock markets, which have swung from the edge of a bear market during the final 2018 quarter to a nearly 10 percent gain in the new year after the Federal Reserve indicated it would slow its pace of interest rate hikes. Without a U.S.-China trade deal or the exact path of Brexit finalized, global stocks could remain volatile throughout the year, fund managers said.
