Christopher Evans, Senior Analyst at Plimsoll says, “If you are looking for a pre-Brexit, good news story in the UK economy then these industries hit all the right spots”.

“Across a broad spectrum of the economy, these markets are achieving a minimum 6% annual growth and average margins of at least 6%. What’s more, using the Plimsoll Model we have rated each company in over 1600 separate industries based on their overall financial health. Our analysis shows at least 45% of companies in these markets are rated as Strong and less than 30% are rated Danger”. 

“The UK economy faces a unique set of challenges over the next year with Brexit and the uncertainty of what it might bring. However, while some markets will suffer the inevitable disruption it is set to bring, there are others that should be well placed to thrive”
