Apr 30: John Chatfeild-Roberts: the UK election

John Chatfeild-Roberts, chief investment officer at Jupiter Asset Management, on what investors should expect if the UK gets a hung parliament. Over 70% of the FTSE 100's earnings come from abroad, he says, so the state of the global economy is more important that the election outcome for UK stocks. He says bond markets will be looking for stern action from the UK government, but he expects that to come whoever wins the election.
