UK versus Europe: geopolitics and the post-Brexit investment dilemma

Edward Tran, Simon Durkin, David Skinner, Jim Garman, Jessica Hardman

With the continued uncertainty around the outcome of Brexit, are UK investors ready to diversify away from a domestic strategy into a pan-European or global one? And what does Brexit mean for global investors? The depreciation of the pound post-referendum made UK assets cheaper for overseas investors but is this the only reason for investing in the UK or will good quality UK properties continue to provide long-term attractive income returns?
