Latest Office for National Statistics Crime Report shows rise in fraud and cyber crime
Friday, 28 April 2017
Commenting on the report, Robert Capps, VP of business development at fraud mitigation company, NuData Security, said “It’s reassuring to see cyber crime and fraud stats included in the annual national crime figures. I’m hopeful that this is a signal of change in law enforcement's attitude toward online crime and fraud, heralding a growing acknowledgement of the impacts and scale of crime committed online.  Anything that will help law enforcement agencies prioritise cyber crime in the UK, and demand more resources to counter such an existential threat to consumers and businesses that transact online, will be a vast improvement over what we have today. Provided these funds are spent judiciously, the fact that the government is saying they are investing £1.9bn in cybersecurity over the next few years is a huge step forward.

Wednesday, 26 April 2017
Online research from Equifax, the consumer and business insights expert, reveals that 61% of Brits underestimate the financial cost of fraud, valuing the impact at less than £1 billion.

UK General Election: More certainty, or less uncertainty
Wednesday, 26 April 2017
Given the political shocks we have witnessed over the last 12 months one would be forgiven for thinking that it is increasingly difficult for observers and markets to be taken by surprise. But that is exactly what happened earlier last week when Prime Minister Theresa May called for a snap general election on 8th June 2017, three years before the legally mandated deadline. Since taking office last summer, Mrs May had repeatedly dismissed the idea of an election before 2020.

Commenting on Macron and Le Pen going through to the French election run-off
Monday, 24 April 2017
Commenting on the French presidential election first round result, John Wyn-Evans, Head of Investment Strategy at Investec Wealth & Investment, said: “The news today that the independent Emmanuel Macron and the far right Marine Le Pen have prevailed at the polls, setting up a final head-to-head in 2 weeks’ time, is seen as positive. Given the circumstances, this was the market’s preferred outcome, and the expectation now is that M Macron will prevail in the second round. His policies cleverly appeal to both sides of the political spectrum, and they are succinctly described by the Financial Times as a “business-friendly agenda coupled with Nordic-style welfarism”, encompassing, for example, labour market deregulation, lower corporation tax, and no social security contributions for those on the minimum wage. He is also a strong supporter of the European Union, although a full exposition of his EU policies might have to wait until we know who wins the German election later this year. We acknowledge that M Macron’s En Marche! Party is unlikely to attain a parliamentary majority in June’s legislative elections, but believe that a centrist, market-friendly coalition can be formed.
