UK FTSE 100 (.FTSE) stocks hit record high after Boris Johnson wins Tory landslide
Stock markets and the pound rose sharply on Friday after Boris Johnson’s Conservatives secured a resounding general election win.
The FTSE 250 index of mid-sized UK firms surged 4 per cent to an all-time high on hopes that Mr Johnson will swiftly bring an end to the Brexit deadlock.
Sterling jumped 2.1 per cent to $1.34 and hit €1.20 against the euro, its highest level against the single currency since the immediate aftermath of the Brexit referendum.
Companies have held off investment since the June 2016 referendum as the UK remained in political and economic turmoil over its future relationship with the EU.
While Mr Johnson’s government still has to negotiate a trade deal with the EU, investors interpreted his comfortable election victory as one that will bring stability.
