UK Equities: Time for a rethink.

The UK equity market is the cheapest it has been relative to global equities for 50 years. Value is evidenced by the continued growth in corporate activity which, when combined with share buybacks and the return of dividends, creates a dynamic risk reward outlook for the market in 2022 and beyond. With inflation proving more stubborn than many had predicted, focusing on sustainable cashflows needs to be at the forefront of investors thinking. Adrian Gosden explains why the unloved UK equity income space is back in vogue.

We’ve only just begun: why the great rotation from growth to value is only getting started

Ultra-loose monetary policy for the last decade has created a bubble in long duration assets including growth equities. This bubble now appears to be bursting as high inflation data has forced the central banks to finally take action and this will change where investors need to be positioned in the years ahead. This presentation will make the case that investors should alter their positioning to reflect this by reducing their exposure to growth equities and increasing exposure to value and particularly those sectors which benefit during a period of rising inflation such as energy, mining and banking. UK value is an excellent way to gain this exposure via an asset class that is out of favour and hence very cheap.

Opportunities in an unloved market

With 2022 continuing the 10-year theme of outflows in UK active equities, is the UK market really reaching its Jurassic Park moment? The UK Opportunities team see a once in a generation valuation opportunity to own companies taking advantage of long-term structural growth tailwinds, that are globally leading in their fields and providing some very attractive levels of growth. Investment themes are shifting in favour of many UK listed businesses and for a fund which is prepared to be different, with no benchmark or income constraints, they can truly own the 30 or so best positioned companies in the UK.

The World for Sale: Opportunity in the UK Equities Asset Class

The UK Equity market has come to be characterised as a backward place solely focused on dividends and commodities. Since 2016, its reputation has been further labouring under the baggage of political uncertainty and a much-criticised response to Covid-19. As these clouds lift, much of the case for UK Equities rests on cheap valuations. However, the story of the UK market is also one of global companies, delivering real growth across a range of sectors. Join Richard Knight and Thomas Morris, Portfolio Manager and Product Specialist respectively for UK equities, as they discuss why the UK’s highly discounted market today offers fantastic opportunities for stock pickers, and why their rigorous, value-driven all-cap approach has delivered strong outperformance across market environments.

Transmogrification – How the UK stock market could come to be the asset of choice for global investors’

Cornerstoned by both deflationary imports and Chinese expansion, Globalisation offered a mix of benign inflation and abundant global growth, so that clients enjoyed decades of supernormal returns. Unfortunately, investors are now faced with the opposite – a world of stagflation and declining asset markets, spiced with geopolitical events that carry precipice risk. Gervais expands on how these unpromising prospects will transmogrify to the UK stock market into being the global asset of choice, with UK quoted small and microcaps not only offering the potential for attractive returns and portfolio diversification.

UK equities: Why a truly active approach is necessary when increasing exposure

Nick Shenton will explain why a truer expression of active management is desirable when investors return to UK markets. He will go beyond the oversimplified value/growth debate by explaining the process the Artemis Income team applies in their search for sustainable, diversified and growing long-duration cash flows. Nick will highlight the total return compounding opportunity in this attractively valued investment universe. Contrary to popular belief, investors do not need to pay US prices for technology exposure, as Nick will highlight in his presentation.
