Are UK investors jumping back into the stock market?

The Investment Management Association (IMA) has issued a very upbeat report on the state of the UK investment market with confirmation that the second quarter of 2009 saw a net £7.4 billion invested in the sector compared to just £2.3 billion in the same period last year. This figure is the net investment in the sector after taking into account redemptions and withdrawals and is very positive for the future.

Investment during June was slightly below the figure from May but still came in at £2.5 billion which compares very favourably with the figure of £127 million in the corresponding period in 2008. When you take into account the above figures and the fact that the UK stock market is on the verge of a record with regards to consecutive daily increases in the FTSE 100, it would seem as though the tide has potentially turned?

However, there is no doubt that investors still need to be very cautious and very aware that the market can turn very quickly and not all areas of the economy will recover at the same rate. As a consequence it is imperative that professional financial advice is taken before you invest in the stock market to ensure that your investments reflect your needs and your circumstances.
