Brexit woes spur Brits to buy weak dollar premium
More and more Brits are moving to buy dollars due to weakness in the greenback coupled with fears over a plummeting pound. The Dollar Index fell 0.5% on Monday, trading at levels we’ve not seen in over two years. This sharp dollar sell-off is viewed by internationally-minded Brits as an opportunity to purchase dollars as they fear a steep plunge in the pound in the event of a no-deal Brexit – which is looking increasingly to be the case. The dollar is being impacted by Read More

Company pensions: the perfect storm is looming premium
Company pensions are becoming more and more untenable following the decline in government bond yields and low rates. Since the Coronavirus crisis hit, the yields of government securities – in which pension funds heavily invest – have fallen considerably. Traditionally, institutional investors, like pension funds, have always invested in government bonds, as they’re broadly viewed as a safe haven. Nevertheless, we’ve seen the world change dramatically over the past Read More

Tax planning woes for expats due to lockdown restrictions premium
Countries around the world are at last starting to ease the lockdown measures implemented to contain the spread of coronavirus. However, the restrictions that were put in place could mean many expats will likely be faced with unexpected tax complications.

A lot of this change is being fuelled by new technologies and the ever-increasing pace of the digitalisation of our lives, and our financial lives. This trend was around before the pandemic broke Read More
