Is now a good time to invest in the FTSE 100?

The FTSE 100 has become unloved and unwanted by an increasing number of investors.

I guess you can’t really blame them. After all, the FTSE 100 has grown from 6,900 in 1999 to 7,500 today, which is less than a 10% capital gain over 22 years.

By any reasonable stretch of the imagination, that’s a terrible return for an investment as volatile as the stock market.

To rub salt into this particular wound, US stocks have gained more than 200% over those same 22 years, as has the UK housing market.

And as you might expect, most investors today are keen to put more money into US stocks and UK property, precisely because they’ve performed so well over the last decade or two.

But are they right to do so, or should investors instead be shovelling at least some of their money into the relatively unloved UK stock market?
