  • The economic growth in the UK has been slow post the pandemic-related disruptions and consumer confidence is rapidly falling amid soaring inflation.
  • Value stocks, or stocks trading at values less than their real worth, tend to perform better than growth stocks during periods of high inflation. 

The economic growth in the UK has been slow post the pandemic-related disruptions. The ongoing cost-of-living crisis in the UK and falling real ages have heavily impacted the households, who are desperately trying to sustain themselves in this turmoil.

The situation has been worsened due to the war situation, and economists have been warning that the country is headed towards recession if the current trend of slow growth accompanied by rising prices continues.

According to recent reports, consumer confidence in the UK has been falling, reaching levels even worse than the financial crisis which struck the world in 2008, which led to the global recession. Even during these hard times, investors are trying to maximise their gains, and are thus focusing on value stocks.

Value stocks, or stocks trading at values less than their real worth, tend to perform better than growth stocks during periods of high inflation.
