Comments & Opinion

Australia: rates kept constant following signs of economic recovery

Citing signs of economic recovery, the Reserve Bank of Australia has elected to maintain interest rates at 3%. Despite falling house prices and expectations of rising unemployment in 2009, the stock market has picked up and there are some positive economic indications. However, the Reserve Bank must consider that banks may not pass on further rate cuts.

ATM outsourcing: a viable option for struggling banks

In the current economic environment, banks should carefully analyze the current and future total cost of ownership of their technology assets, and evaluate the outsourcing alternative. With a widespread lack of capital for costly upfront investments, renting ATM hardware and associated services becomes an attractive, and in some cases the only feasible, option to struggling banks.

UK Budget: higher taxes offer opportunities for wealth management

The government's introduction of a 50% income tax rate for those earning more than GBP150,000 is the latest move in what is being described by some as a 'war on wealth'. The clampdown is obviously bad news for the country's private banking industry, but change also brings opportunity. Wealth managers should now focus on financial planning and helping clients to minimize their tax burden.

UK Budget: small boost for struggling savers

The 2009 Budget contained a sliver of good news for savers with the announcement that, from April 2010, everyone will be able to invest up to GBP10,200 in tax-free ISAs each year. However, due to base rate reductions the benefits of the scheme will be minor, and the new legislation would be improved if it allowed more flexibility, particularly for people over 50.

UK Budget: backward steps for the pensions industry

One of the notable measures in the UK government's 2009 Budget is an eventual reduction in pension tax relief for high earners from 40% to 20%. The change goes back on attempts to tackle the pensions gap, as it is likely to dissuade the wealthy from saving for a pension, making it vital that providers and advisors encourage consumers to make long-term savings and seek regular professional advice.
