Since the EU referendum in June 2016, investors have been forced to manage their investment portfolios amidst uncertain economic and political conditions. Not only have they been required to monitor and project the performance of the assets they hold – as they typically would – they have also had to prepare for market shocks and unpredictable events that could impact their investments.
With 31 October set as the current Brexit deadline, Boris Johnson has made clear his intention to ensure the UK leaves the EU by this date, with or without a deal. Unsurprisingly, this bullish approach has caused a backlash from many MPs within Westminster, with opposition parties attempting to block the Prime Minister from presiding over a no-deal Brexit.
To make matters more complicated, on 10 September, Boris Johnson suspended Parliament for a five-week period however, Parliament is set to resume after the Supreme Court ruled the suspension unlawful. With the deadline fast approaching, UK investors are still none the wiser as to how Brexit will be managed.
At this critical juncture, it is important for property investors to take a step back and assess their current financial strategies to ensure they are adequately prepared for any potential fallout as a consequence of Brexit. For this reason, Experience Invest is pleased to announce the launch a brand new report: The post-Brexit investment strategies of UK property investors.
Based on an independent survey of just over 1,000 UK-based property investors (all of which own three or more properties), the report shows how this important category of investors are managing their investment strategies as a consequence of Brexit, and the actions they plan on undertaking once the deadline passes.
Are financial plans being put on hold as investors await the outcome of Brexit? Which asset classes are investors being attracted to? And what investments are being considered by investors after the UK leaves the EU? This new report will provide answers to all these pertinent questions.
