392 of the UK’s leading Independent Financial Advisors are worth a third less than they were a year ago in the clearest indication yet of the damage the recession has wreaked on the market. However, in a sign that the recovery is gaining traction, 360 companies in the market have actually increased in value.
It’s certainly been a tough few years. Values have fallen markedly from their peak but the number of companies that are worth more this year than last is encouraging”.
In all we identified 360 companies that have increased in value - quite an achievement considering current market conditions. Their performance adds to the growing belief that the market has stabilised and companies with their house in order can once again prosper and add value.
However, as with all recoveries there are those that struggle to recover and 392 other firms have seen their value slump by at least 30% in the latest year. They have such a lot of ground to make up and many are in such dire straits that we have issued 284 of them with a Danger rating. The post recession market is so highly competitive I would expect a number of these companies to be bought out on the cheap or decline further and eventually be wound up.
