Presented by: Jen Causton, Investment Manager and Jon Arthur, Product Specialist, Architas In this webinar we will examine why UK equities have lagged other developed markets so far this year, and to what extent this is likely to continue going forward. We will provide insights into how we are currently investing in UK equities, given on-going UK-EU trade deal uncertainty and the potential for a second wave of COVID-19. We will also detail the investment philosophy behind our current top two UK equity fund picks, discussing why we hold them and our current weightings.
