The bond yield curve has inverted, the U.S.-China trade war rages on, and Brexit is edging closer with a deal not yet in sight. In uncertain times such as these, finding investments that can weather the storms and do well in the long-term seems all but impossible.

The rapid pace of technological change means that start-ups can grow into unicorns in a matter of years, but it also means that companies become obsolete quicker. The average age of an S&P 500 company is less than 20 years, down from 60 years in the 1950s, according to Credit Suisse.
