Investors should prepare for a bumpy ride

Commenting on the UK Government’s fiscal event, RLAM Head of Multi Asset Trevor Greetham said:

“Action to help struggling households and businesses pay their heating bills this winter was essential, but the scale of the tax cuts and spending increases in this announcement is breath-taking. Arguably, a significant, unfunded fiscal stimulus package like this would have made economic sense after the deflationary Global Financial Crisis, when borrowing costs were low and private sector balance sheets were deleveraging. Now with spare capacity non-existent, inflation at a forty year high and the Bank of England trying to cool things down, we are likely to see a policy tug of war reminiscent of the stop-go 1970s. Investors should be prepared for a bumpy ride.”
