The KPMG UK50 includes the largest listed firms from the FTSE 100 and 250 that derive more than 70% of their revenues from the UK.

  • In August, the index fell by 0.6% (down by 2.7% in US dollar terms).

Since the EU referendum …

  • The KPMG Non-UK50 index has risen by 33.5% (up 16% in US dollar terms).

Commenting on the data, Yael Selfin, Chief Economist KPMG in the UK, said: 

"Investors remained downbeat on the prospects for the UK economy in August as the fortunes of non-UK focussed companies continued to outperform those that depend on the domestic UK market.

"A slowing economy and uncertainty around Brexit may have encouraged investors to look for opportunities elsewhere."
