What are the opportunities for the UK’s middle market?

25 January 2017

I think there are two major opportunities for the UKs middle market, the first is via the depreciation of Sterling that’s greater opportunities for trade due to significant changes in the terms of trade that means increased competitiveness for the UK middle-market firms.

Second, I think is that both Teresa May and Donald Trump are going to be looking for opportunities to show their bona fides on free trade. I expect that sometime over the next year or two, the US and the UK will move towards enacting a US / UK free trade agreement.

That will favour in many cases British firms in telecommunications and emerging bio and pharma, those are very important opportunities I think to move forward on what’s going to be a different form of globalisation over the next few years.
