Comment on the Bank of England September approvals from Jonathan Sealey at Hope Capital
Monday, 30 October 2017
Jonathan Sealey, CEO at Hope Capital, says “There is so much speculation at the moment regarding a rise in the Bank of England base rate.  Yet, when you consider that most of the lending in September came from deals agreed up to three months ago, it is also difficult to see how the recent change in the Bank’s sentiment, regarding a rate rise, has had any effect on these figures.

Comment: Consumer Debt Approaching 2008 Crisis Level
Thursday, 26 October 2017
Keith Church, Head of Economic Modelling at 4most, says: “As Standard & Poor’s predicts, the recent trend in credit growth is quite clearly unsustainable.

However, the real problems emerge if the economy continues its current trajectory and in that situation it is usually younger workers who suffer most in terms of unemployment. With more exposure to levels of debt and the most likely to face unemployment, younger people, aged 18-24, are most at risk.”

But demand has grown at a fast pace too, driven by the search for yield and the desire to diversify. A substantial number of pension funds are already investing in alternative credit, and their number is expected to grow over 80% by 2020. ‘Alternative credit’ seems to be a broadly used term. What does NN Investment Partners’ (NN IP) capture in this category and what do they see as the benefits and challenges of investing in alternative credit?
