Perspective

Webinar: Myth-busting the UK equities market


Myth 1: The UK economy is weaker after Brexit so it can’t be an attractive place to invest.

Reality: The correlation between economic growth and market performance is weak. This is especially true for UK companies, which derive a significant share of their earnings from abroad.

Myth 2: There are no growth companies in the UK.

Reality: Over 40 UK companies saw their share prices increase more than 10-fold in the decade to 31 July 2021.

Myth 3:  The UK is a “sustainability pariah”.

Reality: UK companies are world leaders in many areas of sustainable investment, such as electric vehicle batteries and responsibly-sourced clothing.

Myth 4: The UK was only good for dividends which have been cut due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Reality: The yield from the UK stock market still looks very favourable compared to other markets.
