2018 predictions - a rise in insolvencies and clear-out of zombies PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 04 January 2018
“We expect the business climate to remain benign for most of 2018, though the divide between successful companies and those struggling to stay afloat may widen. While the former will continue to forge ahead, the latter will most likely come under increasing pressure. Not only are interest rates like to rise, but with buoyant demand for commercial property and prices on the rise in some areas, landlords and secured lenders may finally lose patience with persistent late payers and decide that now is an opportune time to realise the value of their properties and assets. Therefore, we are likely to see a rise in insolvencies and a clear-out of ‘zombie’ companies whose survival until now has largely been due to low interest rates and patient creditors.”

2018 predictions from Neil Warburton, director at valuers and auctioneers Charterfields
