While the news is abuzz with the 2024 UK General Election, as investors we take a longer-term view. UK stock markets can easily adjust to different governments, even if there’s been uncertainty in the run up and after an election.

The UK has seen an uplift in investor confidence and interest in its stock market this year. Home to some world-class companies, a competitive income market and with a possible new 'British ISA' on the horizon, the UK offers some options for those who want to invest close to home.

There could be growth opportunities for investors who want exposure to the UK stock market. But it’s still important to invest across different countries, as well as industries and companies, to achieve a diversified portfolio.

Investments and any income from them can fall as well as rise in value, so you could get back less than you invest.

Get investing in the UK with a Stocks and Shares ISA

A Stocks and Shares ISA lets you invest up to £20,000 free from UK income and capital gains tax. Remember, tax and ISA rules can change, and any benefits depend on your personal circumstances.

You should choose investments based on your own objectives and attitude to risk. If you're not sure whether an investment is right for you, ask for financial advice.

How to pick investments for an ISA

Investing in funds won't be right for everyone. Only invest in a fund if its objectives align with your own, and there's a specific need for that type of investment within your portfolio. Investors should understand the specific risks of a fund before they invest and be investing for the long term (five years or more).
