Where do private investors see the next opportunities for investing? Join us at the London Investor Show to find out more!

By: Jack Dominy


In preparation for our attendance at the London Investor Show, Research in Finance recently ran an independent survey asking 131 UK private investors their thoughts on current investment topics and their attitude towards the current market.

As part of this survey, private investors were asked countries they think will offer the best investment opportunity over the next 12 to 24 months. USA and UK received the highest proportion of mentions, with 45% and 33% respectively. India (18%), Japan (15%) and Vietnam (14%) are receiving most investor interest within Asian markets.

The survey also asked private investors which sector which will offer the best investment opportunity over the next 12 to 24 months. The energy sector was the stand-out choice, with a huge 45% of the vote. However, there is a clear divide in opinion as to whether the investment opportunity is in green energy or fossil fuels; 23% of investors think the opportunity lies with renewable energy such as solar and wind, while 22% believe non-renewable energy forms, such as oil and gas offer the best opportunity. A close and perhaps unexpected result, given the current trend towards ESG.

Research in Finance will be at The London Investor Show on 27th October 2022 and The Investment Company Show on 28th October 2022, where you can hear more about these results and ask further questions on the latest investment trends and thinking among private investors. Attending the London Investor Show is an excellent way to connect with other, like-minded, investors and traders; with the companies who can help you succeed; and with the speakers and tutors who are there to share their hard-won knowledge with you. Toby Finden-Crofts, Annalise Toberman and Jack Dominy will all be in panel discussions throughout the day at The London Investor Show, and the Research in Finance team will have a stand as an exhibitor on both days.

We are pleased to be able to offer you free tickets to the event. Register here using the code RIF22. We look forward to seeing you there!
