Welcome to the new The UK Edge website. The site gives you all the news, information, commentary, expert views and opinion on investing in the UK equity space, as well as providing a community of like-minded investment professionals to share views with.

Brought to you by Fund Strategy, Money Marketing and JP Morgan Asset Management, the site already has a wealth of content, and more will be added over the coming days and months.

With just three weeks remaining before the vote on the referendum, Brexit and the impact of the UK leaving the EU has been a hot topic. Stephanie Flanders, J.P. Morgan Asset Management chief market strategist for UK and Europe, discusses the effects we’ve seen on markets in the run-up to the vote. In her video interview we talk about the winners and losers in the market volatility ahead of the referendum and what to expect post-vote.

Stephanie also looks at the impact of the referendum on UK inflation, in her video blog. Speaking after the Bank of England released its latest forecasts for the UK economy, she speaks about the challenges faced by governor Mark Carney.

Looking away from Brexit, the Investment Association’s review of the requirements for the UK Equity Income sector has been widely debated in the industry. The trade body has laid out three options for the new yield threshold, following a number of funds being kicked out of the sector. Our panel of experts look at the options, their pros and cons and the likely outcome of the review.

Coming up we will have the results and opinion from a recent roundtable we held on Brexit, with our panel of experts talking about the impact on the UK of either outcome and how to Brexit-proof portfolios. We will also have the first in our series of Investment Innovator profiles looking at leading investment professionals and fund selectors and how they manage their business.

In the meantime, sign-up to post questions, debate articles, connect with contacts and let us know your thoughts on the site.
