UK funds to recommend as Brexit beckons

Both Tilney's Mr Hollands and Ben Willis, head of portfolio management at Chase de Vere, said they liked JOHCM UK Dynamic, which is managed by Alex Savvides and seeks UK recovery and contrarian stock opportunities within large and mid-cap stocks.

Mr Savvides will actively look for companies that have experienced difficulties but where there is management change, as this is often a catalyst for recovery.

He will also only invest in dividend paying companies, seeking out total returns from his portfolio.

Another fund that has captured the attention of Chase de Vere's Mr Willis is RCW UK Equity Income, which was launched recently with two old hands at the helm in Nick Purves and Ian Lance.

The pair, who have been investing in UK equity income stocks for more than 20 years, seek dividend paying companies predominantly in the large cap space.

Mr Willis said: "They have a value approach to investing, looking for cheap, high yielding areas of the UK market that are either unloved or being overlooked by investors."
