Right now it may seem like there’s nothing but gloom ahead for the UK’s economy.  COVID19 refuses to disappear or submit to a cure or vaccine.  Brexit is on the way in less than five months.  Whatever opportunities it creates in the long term, it looks certain to cause at least some degree of disruption in the short term.  In [...]

Who’s Better with Money?

Every so often, someone brings up the old debate about whether men or women are better with money (or whether it depends entirely on the individual).  The debate is often a bit of fun, but it does raise a serious question.  How do you define and/or measure how well someone manages their money.  Here are a few thoughts.

Charting the path of a slow recovery

By |July 31st, 2020|Categories: Victor Finance News|Tags: , , |

It’s probably superfluous to say that the UK’s economy has contracted sharply since COVID-19 struck.  It’s also probably superfluous to say that it’s currently looking that the way forward is a long, slow and difficult path.  It is, however, arguably very pertinent to look at what this could mean for investors and where profits might be found even in challenging [...]

As if investors didn’t have enough to think about, they now have to deal with growing numbers of cyberattacks targeting them and the genuine financial-services companies with whom they may do business.  Sadly, the fact that these attacks spiked with the Coronavirus does not necessarily mean that they will die down as life returns to normal, still less that they [...]

If you have a strong stomach, then now could be the perfect time to set up your share portfolio for a win when the market recovers.  Admittedly, a market recovery is not guaranteed, but a glance through history shows that there have been many occasions when the world, and the stock market, has gone through “interesting times” - and come [...]

Hopefully, the worst of the COVID19 pandemic is now over and people around the world can start easing themselves into the new normal.  Of course, in some place, the term “the new normal” may have to be interpreted fairly loosely.  In the UK, for example, 2021 should be the year Brexit really begins as the UK finally severs ties with [...]
