We will therefore be working remotely to continue helping our clients and customers and will take all possible steps to ensure service levels remain high during these rather challenging times.

Please call the normal office telephone lines as your calls will continue to be answered and forwarded to the appropriate member of staff..

We appreciate how difficult and uncertain this period will be for everyone but we would like to reassure you that during it we will do all we can to help.

Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and well.

Bank of England briefing

Bank of England briefing

Richard Nocton, Partner in our Marlborough office, attended a Bank of England briefing on 14th November 2019 in Swindon, hosted by their Regional Agent Donna Kehoe.

The BoE Monetary Policy Committee are apolitical and are responsible for setting interest rates and regulating the UK Sterling Reserves and Bonds.

Their summary and assumptions of the present market conditions is:

  • There will be a smooth Brexit transition and a deep free trade agreement with the EU
  • That Gross Domestic Product (GDP) will pick up in 2020 and that inflation will fall back to 1 ¼%
  • Most of the Brexit transition will take place within the forecast period

And finally……………..There are £2 billion £20 notes and to replace these there will be a new £20 note issued on 20/2/20
