Wealth Management Update – April 2019

Welcome to our April Newsletter.

Easter is upon us! To celebrate, here are not one but two fun facts about the holiday. First, the art of painting eggs originates from Ukraine and is called pysanka. Second, the tallest chocolate Easter egg ever was made in Italy in 2011; at 34 feet tall and weighing 7.2 tons, that’s taller than a giraffe and heavier than an elephant!

In money and finance news, the ONS reports UK unemployment is at its lowest in 44 years at 3.9%, average house prices have increased at their slowest annual pace in nearly six years (year to January 2019), and 1.5 million jobs are reportedly at risk from automation. On the ongoing Brexit saga, drama in parliament will surely inspire the next big Netflix docu-series.
