    • Private Banking Global ‘Wrap Up’ – Q4 2014

      The global economy continued to experience a mixed performance towards the end of 2014. On one hand, momentum in the US improved with the economy posted its best quarterly performance since 2003 with growth of 5%. However this was countered by sluggish conditions in the Euro zone (annualised growth of 0.8%) and another recession in Japan as the economy contracted again, this time mainly as a result of lower inventory investment in contrast to the collapse in consumer spending in the second quarter.

    • Retirement Planning Update – December 2014

      After a series of negative Budgets, one could be forgiven for dreading the annual Budget speech. From a Pensions & Retirement Planning point of view however, Minister Noonan’s speech on 14th October contained no nasty surprises and in a nutshell, the only reference to Pensions was a welcome one in that the Pension Levy, introduced in 2011, will be 0.15% for 2015 and will cease at the end of that year. The Finance Bill published on 23rd October continued the general mood of positivity and contained a few additional pleasant surprises which have been widely welcomed by the Pensions Industry. While we await the Bill to be passed into law (in January), you can read about some of the good news stories from a retirement planning perspective here.
