Brexit has become the main topic of conversation for most UK investors.

Many are heavily invested in the UK economy, partly out of patriotism and partly out of familiarity with the UK economy.

Now all the old certainties have been smashed, as the political maelstrom around Brexit intensifies.

While it is deeply uncertain where we will be at the end of October, all the predictions of a no-deal Brexit look dire.

Hours of queues for lorries delivering food and medicines, many of which have a short shelf-life; large tariffs for companies wanting to export to and from Europe; and deep and long-lasting damage to the UK economy.

This guide will look at some of the prevailing issues over Brexit, for investors who are nervous about the next few weeks and months, and discuss some of the options for those that are invested in the UK economy, whether it be through the stock market or the housing market.
