European Union flags

It’s been five years since the Brexit vote transformed the UK’s political and economic landscape. Since then the UK has left the European Union, and had to contend with the impact of a global pandemic, the end of which is still uncertain. Both events had a dramatic but shortlived impact on the UK stock market, sending both shares and sterling plunging. But stocks have rebounded after initial sell-offs. We look at the 10 best and worst performing UK shares and funds covered by Morningstar since that fateful day in 2016.

Online grocery delivery firm Ocado (OCDO) is the clear winner in the five years since the referendum, with a gain of nearly 600%. The firm was one of the big winners from lockdown, but had already started to build momentum before last year’s disruptions to our shopping habits.
