It's a very volatile world at the moment and to be honest it's difficult to see what investments work. From a business perspective if you have cash then I would be holding on to it, cash is king afterall. I would be making conservative and safe investments where you're not risking your capital especially just now.
I'm not an investment expert by any means and have little experience to be honest but I think what's going on is a global issue and it's not only affecting the US and UK. Central banks around the world are pumping money into their economies so that banks can continue to lend etc. There may be an argument that it's maybe a good time to invest as banks seek cash to boost their own balance sheets.
Like anything to do with investments you'd do well to take some professional advice.
