Done & Dusted

These disappointing figures fuelled speculation that interest rates will not rise until 2016 at the earliest having been frozen at 0.5 per cent since March 2009. 

The expectation that rates will stay lower for longer has been encouraged by the low-inflation environment. The UK March consumer prices index rate of inflation stayed at the 0 per cent recorded in February – despite forecasts falling petrol prices and the supermarket price war would turn the rate negative.

The impact of very low interest rates continues to reverberate around the financial system. For example bond markets are showing signs of increasing volatility and can no longer be relied to be either a safe haven or a predictor of economic activity. Companies are buying back shares using cheap loans rather than investing for the future, whilst certain badly run hedge funds are taking excessive risks with borrowed money and leaving their investors with the downside when things go wrong. 

With little hope for savers that their money will earn them a good rate of interest sitting in a Bank, or invested in government bonds, be it in the UK or Europe , now is the time to speak to the investment specialists at Blacktower. We are here to help you find the right solution to make your money work for YOU.

Due to its location and close links with the UK, Gibraltar has long been a favoured destination by British expats looking for sunnier climes and an attractive tax regime.
