Introduction

UK equities have been sharply out of favour with advisers and clients for most of the past decade, as a combination of the value style of investing being unpopular, the political uncertainty of the Brexit process and later the UK government's botched initial handling of the pandemic, took their toll on the valuation of the UK market.

But with the Brexit process receding from view, and the roll-out of Covid-19 vaccines being successful, there is a new optimism about the trajectory of growth and inflation in the UK economy.

These are the precise circumstances which would be expected to lead to a stronger performance of value stocks, and so to a better outcome for the UK market relative to the rest of the globe.  

This guide will look at the opportunities that could be created for clients in the UK equity market, and comes with 60 minutes of CPD.
