Looking for GBP denominated investment funds

I'm thinking about ERing to the UK, but for some complex reasons its probably better for me to keep investing money in the US. However, I think the $ will go down against the GBP (and most other currencies) in the next few years so I'm looking for GBP denominated invetsments in the US? Do such things exist? If not whoat would be a good way to invest in the US, but get around the fall in the dollar? Would it be to invest in foreign stock funds?

Most large corporations get a lot of their income from overseas, so you are already somewhat hedged against currency fluctuations.

You could buy the UK Web on the AMEX.
