In a year overshadowed by political uncertainty, it is no surprise that investors sat on the side-lines waiting for the storm clouds to clear. But after three quarters of sluggish activity, sentiment improved and net sales rose to £10.5bn in the fourth quarter, the highest since Q415. However, it was not enough to correct the balance — annual net sales of £38bn were down 16% on the £45bn in 2015 and few platforms were able to improve on their 2015 figures.
It was a difficult start to the year. We know your colleagues and clients will be asking for your opinion, so it pays to have some ready facts at the ready. Our 60-second reviews will give you the main industry trends you need without overloading you.
