The UK has new political party in power – and it’s not the result many investors were expecting. On May 7 the British people went into polling booths across the nation and on May 8 a majority Conservative government was in power, and investors in UK equities rejoiced.

Putting political policies aside, the most important aspect of the UK General Election as far as the stock market is concerned is that the man who runs the country is the same this month as it was last month – David Cameron is the Prime Minister. And the market loves nothing more than certainty.
