The UK has plenty to offer

The UK economy outperformed consensus last year, with growth looking set to finish at around 1.5%. This is much better than most expected and while by no means a record breaker points to some resilience in the face of historic change that begs the question how many other economies would perform so well in the face of such transformation?

While even the most ardent supporters of Brexit acknowledge a slowdown is inevitable as we transition from being a full member of the EU to ‘something else’ the obstacles will fade.

Indeed the strength of the pound (compared to the dollar at least) is helping the UK’s reputation as a safe haven.
