Trading UK equities in 2024

UK equities are the cheapest in the world and quite possibly the most out-of-favour they have ever been! Join Saxo for a conversation with Chris McVey, Senior Fund Manager at Octopus Investments.

This session will cover the valuation discount, market & investor sentiment, the decline of UK equity culture, continued bids from private equity as well as getting the thoughts, thesis and top picks from a senior fund manager.

Chris is a Senior Fund Manager within the Octopus Quoted Companies Team. He works across all desk portfolios and is lead manager on the FP Octopus UK Multi Cap Income Fund, and a co-manager on the FP Octopus UK Micro Cap Growth & FP Octopus UK Future Generation Funds. He has been a specialist within the quoted UK Smaller Company market for over 20 years. In 2016, he joined Octopus from Citigroup where he led the UK Small and Mid-Cap Equity research team focusing across a variety of sectors. Prior to this he spent almost seven years on the Smaller Companies team at Gartmore Investment Management as an analyst and investment manager. Chris was awarded Trustnet FE fundinfo Alpha Manager status in 2023.
