John Phillips at Just Mortgages comments on the latest CML figures
Thursday, 20 April 2017
John Phillips, group operations director at Just Mortgages and Spicerhaart says, “It is promising to see that gross mortgage lending in March increased by 19%. It was of course going to be lower than the previous March due to the influx of borrowers rushing to beat the increase in stamp duty for buy-to-let and second homes. 
Comment on CML gross lending for March
Thursday, 20 April 2017
Richard Pike, Phoebus Software sales and marketing director, says “The figures released by the CML today show that there is still an appetite from borrowers wanting to take advantage of low interest rates, especially in the remortgage market.  Of course the question everyone will be asking is will the upcoming election have an effect on the housing market?  Will another round of electioneering cause people to take a step back and wait?  Or, as happened with the Brexit vote, will people continue with their attitude that the world keeps turning and if the time is right the time is right.

Despite Brexit, UK rated as most attractive commercial real estate market
Tuesday, 18 April 2017
The UK remains the preferred region to invest in commercial real estate despite seeing a slight dip in popularity since Brexit, according to the latest BrickVest commercial property investment barometer (‘the Barometer’)1.

Fundamental economic backdrop remains supportive to financial markets and corporate earnings
Tuesday, 18 April 2017
Notwithstanding that there has been a recent fading of momentum in the reflation trade, signalled by lower bond yields and the underperformance of certain more cyclical parts of the equity market, we believe the fundamental backdrop remains supportive to financial markets. Markets have come through a quieter period of late, but we view this pause as constructive. Investors’ expectations had moved too quickly and are now being scaled back to more realistic levels. Economic survey data had reached lofty levels which were unlikely to be sustained due to the trailing gap with real activity data. Furthermore, the rolling over of inflation expectations should in time help to relieve the pressure on real incomes and add support to consumption. Overall, global growth continues to present a positive picture. The fundamentals remain supportive to corporate earnings growth, which is already seeing improvement. According to FactSet, companies in the S&P 500 reported their first two quarters of back-to-back profits growth in two years. In addition, plentiful liquidity continues to remain a key driver of financial markets, aided by very accommodative central bank policies.

Reaction to the Bank of England's Credit Conditions Survey Q1 2017
Thursday, 13 April 2017
Abhai Rajguru, co-founder at Nava responds to the latest Bank of England Credit Conditions Survey (Q1 2017): "There is no doubt that consumer lending is on the rise and it's right that the Bank of England scrutinises all these trends carefully. Concerns about the impact of both inflation, and a potential interest rate rise on the horizon are legitimate. Certain borrowers are stretched and lenders need to be more prudent about lending to them."
