Trust TV: Delivering income at a time of high uncertainty
The UK has a rich history of paying dividends to shareholders and historically, it has been a happy hunting ground for income. This reputation has taken a hit in recent years as Brexit uncertainty and the Covid-19 pandemic have seen the UK lag behind its developed peers. More recently, however, the outlook for the UK market has improved markedly.
Could this turnaround mean that investors may be returning once more to the UK market for the primary reason they always used to – dividends.
