Tax Year End

It is too late for you to do anything – well soon! We can still process pension and ISA applications up till Thursday close of business so if you haven’t done yours and should – don’t dilly-dally anymore! The staff may glare at you but we’re here to help you…! And remember, next Monday you can subscribe the whole amount again so why on earth wait for another year to pass and another year’s valuable tax allowance to be missed for a year?

Global Income

According to a report by Janus Henderson, global dividends for companies broached the highest ever level last year at £1.1trillion, up 8.5% on the previous year. We welcome this. What we think the global investment industry must do however, is much more to dispel the perceived fear of capital risk to investors without acknowledging the benefits of having at least some of your money in shares and which do produce income.
