Of Less Than No Interest

Some investors are now accepting negative interest rates.

While the much of the media attention has been on the high rates of interest that Spain and Italy are suffering, at the other end of Europe some countries are now paying negative interest. Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark have now been dubbed ‘Club Neg’ (a play on the so-called ‘Club Med’ problem economies of Spain, Greece, Italy and Portugal). Last month Germany sold two-year…

That Holiday Feeling

Currencies are not only for holidays.

If you are off to the Mediterranean this summer, you should find it usefully cheaper than a year ago. At the beginning of August 2011 £1 was worth €1.145 on the foreign exchange markets, whereas today it buys around €1.28, meaning euro prices have fallen by about 10% in sterling terms.

While there has been a year’s inflation to counter the euro’s depreciation, price increases are running at an annual…

Income Drawdown Rates Reach Their Floor

The rates for income drawdown reached a new low this month.

Income drawdown – drawing an income directly from your pension plan – has been a popular alternative to buying an annuity for some years. However, because of the risks involved in drawdown, normally the option should only be considered if you have other reliable sources of retirement income.

One of those risks is that the maximum amount that you can

Long-Term Care Heads Back To The Long Grass

The Government has delayed decisions on long-term care.

How to deal with the provision of long-term care for an ageing population is an issue which seems to generate government reports rather than government action.

In 1999 there was a Royal Commission investigation and this has been followed by a variety of other reviews.

The coalition Government set up its own commission, shortly after coming into power. It was chaired by Andrew Dilnot,

Market Conditions Are Resulting In Substantial Cuts To Maximum Income Levels

Income drawdown – drawing income directly from your pension fund – has been a popular alternative to annuity purchase ever since it was introduced in 1995 by Ken Clarke, then in the role of Chancellor.

However, income drawdown involves much greater investment risk than annuity purchase, a point which is coming home to roost in current investment market conditions… The results for existing income drawdown plans reaching their five year review in June 2012 are…

What A Greek Exit Means To You

Grexit. What would happen if Greece left the euro?

What would happen in the event of a ‘Grexit’ – shorthand for a Greek exit from the euro – is attracting much attention.
