Investor sentiment bounced back in August, from 2.59 per cent to 4.92 per cent, although failed to reach the highs seen before the UK general election.
The Lloyds Private Bank’s Investor Sentiment Index shows that despite not reaching levels seen early this year, August’s UK investor confidence is still considerably higher than the 1.53 per cent seen in August last year, shortly after the UK voted to leave the European Union.
Of the investment areas focused on, gold achieved the highest score of 40.94 per cent. Emerging markets equities achieved a score of 21.05 per cent and UK property also received investor attention at 13.33 per cent.
Markus Stadlmann, CIO, Lloyds Private Bank comments: “Generally speaking, the rebound in overall sentiment since last month was rather underwhelming although not unexpected. Much like the weather at this time of year!”
