Hope Capital's Jonathan Sealey comments on the CML's latest figures
Tuesday, 11 April 2017
Jonathan Sealey, CEO of Hope Capital, says, “Although the average age of a first-time buyer is still 30, thanks to low interest rates first-time buyer and home mover activity has continued to increase, while buy-to-let remains relatively unchanged and flat. In fact, gross buy-to-let saw month on month decreases. However, this isn’t that surprising considering the buy-let-market has had to cope with a whole range of government measures including the reduction of mortgage tax relief which threatens to dampen activity further.

Comment: EY's latest economic forecast presents opportunities and challenges for UK businesses
Tuesday, 11 April 2017
 “Recently published economic analysis offers a much stronger outlook for the UK’s fluctuating economy than we have seen to date, particularly as businesses look to adjust to slowing consumer spending and rising inflation. A resurgence in the UK’s overseas trading is expected to counterbalance the impact that Brexit and other economic shifts will have on Sterling. Latest forecasts predict that the UK’s GDP will reach 1.8%, with an anticipated surge in exports of 6.7% in 2017 expected to add to the overall figure. It’s no surprise to see the UK building business relationships with countries and continents outside of the EU – Philip Hammond’s latest trade mission in India was an opportunity to build stronger ties between British and Indian businesses. It’s clear that businesses must err on the side of caution amid Brexit negotiations, but stagnating growth will simply lead to fewer business opportunities; the recent EY forecast found that investment by businesses will drop by 2.2% in 2017. Thus, turning to smart data will become even more critical for businesses that want to continue to grow and contribute to the UK’s economy.

Consumer Confusion About Artificial Intelligence
Wednesday, 05 April 2017
A new global study released by Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company empowering customer engagement at the world’s leading enterprises, revealed consumers are confused about what artificial intelligence (AI) really does and have misplaced fears that inhibit them from using AI-based technology. These findings appear to clash with how the UK government wants to make the UK a world leading industrial centre for AI research and development. However, these fears are eased once consumers gain first hand AI experience – which ironically many enjoy today without even realising it.
