Pensions come out of Autumn Budget largely unscathed premium
This year’s Autumn Budget saw pensions and savings, somewhat surprisingly, left essentially untouched by the Chancellor. Philip Hammond refrained from looking to pensions to raise revenue in the 2017 Autumn Budget, which was characterised by a ‘loud silence’ in regard to this sector.

Monarch’s downfall is a warning to pension savers premium
As I recently told The Express, one of the UK’s biggest nations newspapers, the recent collapse of Monarch Airlines is a red flag that must not be ignored by individuals nearing retirement. Indeed, since one of the UK’s largest holiday airlines went bust at the beginning of this month, coupled with accusations of asset-stripping, yet another pension fund is now in question. As I recently told The Express, one of the UK’s biggest nations newspapers, the recent collapse of Read More

The Fintech Revolution: A Positive Force premium
The financial services sector is currently undergoing, in my opinion, possibly the most profound transformation in history, and it will be a positive force. The seismic changes we are currently seeing are so impactful and far-reaching that I believe these contemporary shifts are comparable to other financial sector milestones, such as the Rothschild family establishing their banks in the late 18th century, the deregulation of the sector in the 1980s and the 2007-2008 global Read More

Should We Be Worried About The Five-Decade Low In Market Volatility? premium
Richard Nixon was in the White House the last time there was this much calm in the U.S. stock market. In the second week of August, the 10-day rolling volatility of the S&P 500 Index went to just 2.43%. In five decades, there has not been such an absence of volatility and it is this that is sparking concerns that investors are overly complacent. Richard Nixon was in the White House the last time there was this much calm in the U.S. stock market. In the Read More

Keep An Eye On Brexit And Trump – But Ignore China At Your Peril premium
Political and economic influences drive capital markets and, therefore, investor returns. The markets are - as a result and unsurprisingly - avidly following every twist and turn of the U.S. political landscape and the start of Britain’s divorce proceedings from the European Union.

Eliminating tax exemption for South African expats is unfair, discriminatory and regressive premium
The move by South Africa to abolish tax exemption for South Africans overseas is totally unfair, highly discriminatory, and achingly regressive. Plans are being put in place by SARS, South Africa’s Revenue Services, to domestically tax individuals who earn money abroad – despite the fact they would still be taxed on their earnings overseas as well. The move by South Africa to abolish tax exemption for South Africans overseas is totally unfair, highly Read More
