UK politics: “The most difficult election to call in the post war period”
As the old adage goes, markets don’t like uncertainty. And yet in just under two months we have a UK election, about which the only degree of confidence that anybody has is that the UK will have a second successive hung parliament – the key question is whether the UK ends up hung to the left, or to the right, or we get a potentially painful outcome somewhere in between.
So we thought it worthwhile to host a UK politics event for clients recently, and drafted in YouGov’s pollster Anthony Wells, along with Alex White of political consultancy Politikos. After the event we recorded a short video to discuss some of the key points.
If you want to keep up to date with Anthony’s and Alex’s views, you can follow them at @anthonyjwells and @AlexWhite1812.
The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
