The first few weeks of Brexit has seen a fair amount of anxiety among those that trade with Europe, especially people exporting perishable goods that have been held up by paperwork.

But for the stock markets there has been something of a boost in the first few weeks of the year.

Much of this is down to the relief that there is a deal, even if many would call it a 'thin' deal, as opposed the cataclysm envisaged from a no-deal Brexit.

How this plays out over the longer term is open to question, but many fund managers are optimistic about the implications for UK equities.

Some of this has to do with the pandemic. While many have lost their jobs, plenty of those that have been working have been able to get themselves into a better financial position, paying down debt and saving.

While the UK goes through the transition, into a post-Brexit reality, investors will be paying close attention to those sectors that will do well, and which stocks will not fare so well.

This report is worth 30 minutes CPD.
