Wealth Management Update – February 2019

Welcome to our February newsletter.

Following on from last month’s introduction, if you’re still persevering with a New Year’s resolution, an extraspecial congratulations to you. And if you’re one of the many people trying vegan, you may be interested to know that one of the old English names for February is kale-Monath (cabbage month).

On a separate note, ‘shrinkflation’ has been in the news recently – where a product shrinks in size but its price doesn’t. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has found that bread and breakfast cereals are the most likely to be affected. However, although the Brexit vote sparked a fall in the pound and a rise in the price of imports, this was not thought to lead to a pick-up in shrinkflation.

Anyway, we‘re pleased to report our newsletter hasn’t shrunk. We hope you find it as full of interesting articles as ever and a great deal more appetising than kale!
