High-profile investors split on UK economy prospects

As if the situation regarding the UK economy was not difficult enough we have seen two well-known investment managers in the press this week stating their very different views on the future of the UK. Firstly it was the turn of Anthony Bolton, a former manager of the Fidelity Special Situations Fund, suggesting that "all of the pieces" for a true bull market in the UK are in place.

However, Neil Woodford has come out with a very different view, suggesting that the UK economy and analysts in general are getting ahead of themselves. He believes there is misplaced confidence in the UK economy and recovery is far from imminent. Both of the investment gurus put forward very detailed and informative reasons for their stance but who do you believe?

There is no doubt that over the last few months we have seen a significant number of "false dawns" which have upset the confidence and stability of UK markets. There is also no doubt that currently UK consumers are still being starved of liquidity which is holding back any recovery in the property and investment markets. Whether this will continue in the short to medium term remains to be seen but until liquidity increases there is little likelihood of a sustainable long-term recovery.
