With the UK having officially left the European Union, Joe Healey and Tom Rosser, investment research analysts at The Share Centre, take a look at investments which may benefit.
For UK investors, a running theme over the past few years has been uncertainty.
The June 2016 referendum result stunned many investors, while the ensuing political chaos kept many more at bay. This had a profound effect on both UK markets and the economy as a whole.

Since the referendum, the FTSE All-Share has underperformed the US markets (S&P 500) by 36.7% and the European markets (MSCI Europe ex-UK) by 7.7%.
According to research by Bloomberg Economics, uncertainty and the Brexit process as a whole is estimated to have cost the UK £130bn.
This equates to the economy being roughly 3% smaller now than it could have been, had the referendum gone the other way.
However, following MPs voting in favour of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, the UK is now expected to meet the latest Brexit deadline, helping to dissipate some of this uncertainty and restore a degree of confidence in UK markets.
The sectors and companies in the gallery above are those we think stand to do well over the medium term, provided additional certainty follows 31 January and investor sentiment continues to tick upwards.
