Economic Review – December 2019

Our monthly Economic Review is intended to provide background to recent developments in investment markets. The bulletin also gives an indication of how some key issues could impact in the future.

With only a few days to go until the UK goes to the polls, all eyes are on the election as the result could influence the future direction of the UK economy in a number of ways. There is mixed data coming out of the economy in this update, with growth low but better than expected and inflation also better than expected, reduced by a fall in energy prices. We also look at worldwide markets and events that are influencing their performance. 

Our update this month includes the following headlines:

  • Growth slowest since 2010
  • Inflation at three-year low
  • Markets
  • Bank split over rates
  • Budget deficit on the rise
