Is Britain Still Investible After Brexit?

What happens to foreign investment in UK after Brexit?

The word ‘uncertainty’ has been mentioned so much over the past 12 months that it may as well be filed in the dictionary underneath “Brexit”. Although the public were well aware that Britain will be leaving the EU on March the 29th when they voted to leave in June, no one could quite prepare for media storm that followed. The UK government have been negotiating non-stop to reach a deal with the EU to avoid a no-deal situation. Alongside these negotiations, industries have been analysed with a fine tooth and comb to try to comprehend where they may stand after Brexit.

Those industries that attract investment from overseas are of particular interest, given that many are reliant on this funding. So, is Britain still investible after Brexit? Some European investors think so, but it may differ for certain sectors.

Who is Investing?

Britain entices investors from across the globe, not least because it’s home to a strong property market and the FTSE 100. European countries form a large part of the investment that comes into the UK. Naturally, the worry is that Brexit will put many off from continuing to invest in the UK.

What Markets Will be Affected?

Stock markets are likely to be the most volatile after Brexit as Britain finds it feet. Nobody can say with any great deal of certainty exactly where the FTSE 100 will end up. Undoubtedly Brexit will trigger a change in the market, whether good or bad. In fact, the short term outlook could be more positive than many may think. The weak pound has boosted earnings for many FTSE 100 companies, and competitive oil and commodity prices have also contributed to their success.

In addition, banks and financial stocks are also predicted to benefit in the long-term. In the short-term, however, it’s likely that banks plummeting interest rates could prove troublesome for those with stocks in financial or banking-related companies.

The property market is also set to suffer. Property management companies such as Roger Hannah suggest that there has been a significant decrease in interest from overseas property investors. This is temporarily due to the uncertainty in what kind of deal the UK will get from Brexit. It’s incredibly hard to predict the effect of Brexit once Britain have left the EU, but it’s likely that in the short-term property investors won’t be looking to the UK to spend their money.

The Rise and Fall of the Pound

As previously mentioned, the fall of value in the pound hasn’t all been bad news – particularly for FTSE 100 companies. What’s yet to be seen is just how the pound will fare in a post-Brexit Britain. Investors have been advised to keep a close eye on their current investments in the UK, as the pound has been generally weaker ever since Brexit was even announced.

How Safe Will Investor’s Money Be?

It doesn’t matter where you’re investing your money, it’s never a guaranteed ROI. With every investment comes some deal of risk. It’s strongly advised that you gather all information together before deciding to invest any money. Therefore, given the already risky nature of investing money, it’s no surprise that many investors are choosing to hold off until Brexit settles down. It also largely depends on the deal agreed between the UK and EU – which is very much still under negotiation.

WHEN LIFE BEGINS

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin — real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
