There was distinct ‘back to school’ flavour about investment news this month. Politicians may be no nearer deciding what a Brexit Britain will look like, but this has not dampened financial markets or the economy.

There was more positive economic data released this month revealing there have been no signs of a major slowdown in UK manufacturing or services since the EU Referendum vote. Stock markets – which were volatile in September – have steadied, with modest rises and falls.

Perhaps the strongest sign that it is back to business as usual in the investment markets is the lifting of restrictions on many commercial property funds.
