  • During economic headwinds, investors look for ways to keep their investments safe.
  • Investors usually prefer dividend stocks as they tend to provide a stable source of income from investments.

Inflation levels in the UK have already breached the 11% mark, and if the projections are to be believed, it will go further up in the coming months. The Bank of England also warned last month that the UK is facing the most prolonged in more than 100 years. The economic downturn is not expected to settle in the coming months and will likely extend into 2024.

On the other hand, the country's economy shrank 0.2% in the latest quarter, hitting 0.4% lower than the levels seen before the COVID-19 pandemic. The mini-budget in September pushed the financial markets into a tizzy, aggravating the situation.
