Reuters reveals FTSE 100 posts biggest annual gains in five years

Reuters exclusively reported that the UK’s FTSE 100 ended 2021 with its best annual performance in five years on the back of gains in commodity-linked and industrial stocks, despite a decline in Dec. 31’s holiday-thinned trading. The benchmark index fell 0.3%, hit by concerns around surging COVID-19 cases as the United Kingdom reported a record rise in daily infections. British blue-chip shares gained 14.3% in 2021 but underperformed their European and U.S. peers, which have scaled multiple record highs.
