Savers, spenders and credit insurance

The base interest rate has dropped but what does that mean for the credit insurance world, maybe nothing, but more likely everything. The main reason for dropping the base rate is to promote spending in a bid to boost the economy suggesting that rather than save, consumers will spend. With the potential of a more active consumer market this would in turn boost a company’s potential client base. If you have more clients, you tend to know less about them.

“I had an opportunity to take out credit insurance, but didn't.” – Peter Jones

At 6 foot 7, Peter Jones not only towers over most people but towers over the business world with his estimated net worth of £500 million. By the time he was 22 he was living the dream.

Jones set up a computer business manufacturing PCs under his own name, but the recession of the early 1990s saw the business go under.

What direction will the FTSE go tomorrow? Will the pound get weaker? What will happen when interest rates are dropped? What direction will house prices go? Who will be the next Prime Minister?
