Comment: Improvement in financial conditions can continue
Monday, 20 March 2017
The global economy is presenting a positive picture with both developed and emerging markets contributing to growth. The improvement in global conditions has coincided with rising financial market confidence. We appear to be in a steady state of equity markets grinding higher, gently rising bond yields and low volatility. Recognising that we are in an unusually extended market cycle, with markets now eight years on from their Global Financial Crisis lows, we believe that the improvement in financial conditions can continue in the near term, driven by excess liquidity, still dovish central banks and an improving global backdrop, with inflation not expected to run into the danger zone. That said, we acknowledge that valuations across developed market equity indices are looking more expensive and credit spreads are at historic lows (the yield difference versus the equivalent maturity sovereign bond). We are therefore comfortable with the current moderate risk overweight, but have little inclination to add further to risk levels.

Financial fraud costing UK £2 million a day
Friday, 17 March 2017
Lisa Baergen, director at fraud mitigation company, NuData Security, said:   “These enormous fraud losses are astounding, and their magnitude can’t help but have a dampening effect on the UK economy. It’s also bad news for consumers, who often bear the brunt of the costs of fraud, especially in account takeover and new account fraud cases. It’s no wonder that consumers are pushing back on institutions and companies to improve security, holding them accountable, yet still wanting to have a good experience going through the gates.

Potential implications of the Dutch election on the economy - Comments from Dun & Bradstreet
Thursday, 16 March 2017
Ben Kleber, Dun & Bradstreet:   “Today, we are seeing one of the most important Dutch elections for a long time, with economic and political instability creating a sense of uncertainty over one of Europe’s most historic nations. Anti-EU sentiment, following Britain’s decision to leave the EU, has given hope to the populist PVV party and its leader Geert Wilders, who has captured most of the headlines recently with his outspoken criticism of the EU and his desire to take the Netherlands out of the EU bloc. A Wilders win might have implications for the future of the EU: it could create the opportunity for other European nations to take advantage of the short-term uncertainty and could herald a break-up of the EU in the longer term.
