US Investors Encouraged to Invest in UK

Laura Kane, UBS head of thematic investing Americas, suggests US investors should look across the pond

Investors US Dollars

A leading US expert on investments has encouraged Americans to look at investing in the UK.

Speaking with Bloomberg yesterday, August 11, Laura Kane, the head of thematic investing Americas at UBS Global Wealth Management, said that a "weakening dollar" can be a "positive", explaining that "there are opportunities to be had outside of the US as well. One of our preferred markets is actually the UK". Expanding on this point, Kane said that "when you look across international equities today, a lot of the market segments seem to be either over valued or fairly valued." Kane suggested, for example, there's a feeling that European valuations have gotten "too high".

Although today, August 12, the UK officially entered a recession, US investors often see the country as a prime opportunity for investment. For example, in recent years, currency fluctuations, particularly with the Pound in light of UK political uncertainties and Brexit, has led to more American buyers of UK property.

With talks continuing on a UK-US Free Trade deal, the UK could be an interesting prospect for Americans going forward.

Laura Kane's interview on Bloomberg is available via Bloomberg TV - Laura's interview is at the 2 minute 47 mark.
