Survey reveals investor optimism over post-Brexit UK business

Lord Howard Leigh, senior partner at Cavendish Corporate Finance, agrees that confidence in UK business is still strong, but disagrees with the assumption that the government is harming optimism. “In fact, we are seeing evidence to the contrary with the FTSE 100 at record highs, both the commercial and residential property markets remaining robust and Lloyds Banking Group’s Investor Sentiment Index in June revealing that UK investor sentiment remains at near record levels, with overall sentiment up 3.87% compared to this period last year,” he said. “This confidence is reflected in the strong appetite we are still seeing from overseas buyers for UK businesses.”
