Columbia Threadneedle Investments – Webinar – Resurrection of a deplorable asset class!

9 February 2021 - 14:30 - 15:30

Webinar – Resurrection of a deplorable asset class!

Join us on Tuesday, 9 February at 13:30 GMT / 14:30 CET as Richard Colwell (Head of UK Equities) and James Thorne present their views on the current market environment for UK Equities. Also joining will be Sonal Sagar who will look at how sustainable stocks have fared through the pandemic and what lies ahead.

If the UK equity market was out of favour at the beginning of 2020, it’s even more so now. Until the arrival of three vaccines and a Brexit deal prompted a wave of market exuberance, UK equities had fallen approximately 20% (end of Dec 2020). The only two worse-performing equity markets were Russia and Brazil.

By the end of 2021, although investment should be building up and businesses get back on their feet, there will be more insolvencies than there were after the global financial crisis, and unemployment may reach similar levels to the 1980s.

However the best time to invest is when it feels uncomfortable! Richard, James and Sonal will look at how depressed valuations are accelerating M&A and with 60 companies already reinstating their dividends, UK equities are offering a great opportunity.

You will have an opportunity to ask questions in the webinar. Please register below to join the media webinar.
