Investment Masterclass: Nick Train on the case for investing in UK shares

Are UK shares a bargain or a basket case? Nick Train has been an investment manager for more than 40 years and is renowned for sticking with his choices even if markets go against him. The man who’s been dubbed the UK’s answer to Warren Buffett tells host Claer Barrett why he has faith that shares in unloved UK companies will bounce back, even after years of underwhelming performance. Plus, he reveals why he seized the chance to secure a significant stake in Manchester United and why he’d like more young people to ditch sports betting in favour of having a flutter on the stock market.
