Brand Finance United Kingdom 150 2019

  • Brexit blues haven’t affected all brand values: Star performances from McLaren and EY
  • Sectors showing brand value rises: professional services, retail, insurance, tourism and leisure
  • Brewdog sips on success as UK’s fastest growing brand, up 89% since last year to £1.2 billion
  • Retail resilience as supermarket brands thrive with online offering, as CMA rules against Sainsburys-Asda merger

“It is the best of British brands whose reach already extends beyond the UK which will flourish due to their international presence. This global reach outside of Europe is what will ultimately help sustain momentum and further brand value growth. Despite the weaker pound and the ongoing Brexit saga, this year’s UK 150 brands show a surprising level of resilience. Lower petrol prices, cheaper flights and the continued desire to have a holiday are benefiting airline, hospitality and retail brands.”

David Haigh, CEO of Brand Finance
