The Financial Outlook For Personal Investors: Are private equity takeovers actually a good thing?

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors

The Financial Outlook For Personal Investors: Are private equity takeovers actually a good thing?
In the wake of the buyout of Lookers, Neil Shah of Edison Group considers whether the fact that the UK listed market is steadily being depleted is a bad thing or not? He feels that takeovers by trade buyers or private equity provide a possible exit for investors when the stock market might be underpricing companies and that, without it, investors – particularly in the small- and mid-cap areas – might not see value realised.

The Bigger Picture: Will opinions about the EU switch, failing water companies & is the NHS about to hit a point of no return?

The Bigger Picture: Will opinions about the EU switch, failing water companies & is the NHS about to hit a point of no return?
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University suggests that, with the trend in Europe towards nationalist populism and harsher immigration policies, opinions in the UK towards the EU from each political wing may switch, as they have done before. With Thames Water in dire staits, why are natural monopolies failures whether run by the state or privately and what can be done? And with the problems of the NHS deepening, is it about to hit the point of no return?

Thought for the Week: Russia in Crisis
Last Saturday's trail of chaos exposes the challenge facing Russia, absorbed in conflict and with its people living in fear and poverty. Plans are urgently needed to find a way out of this mess. But it has to start with ending the violence in Ukraine. Could there be a role for UN peacekeepers to help while Russia looks for a new way forward?

This Is Money: Was hiking interest rates again the right move or is the Bank of England in panic mode?
The Bank of England’s bumper 0.5% rate hike this week was the 13th rise in a row. After sitting on their hands for more than a decade, ratesetters have been shaken out of their slumbers by an inflation storm. By historic standards 5% is not high for interest rates, but unfortunately for borrowers we also started from a historic low and have gone from 0.1% to here in just 18 months. The belated headlong rush into raising rates is also the exact opposite of what the Bank of England spent years assuring homeowners would happen: the party line used to be ‘gradual and limited’. The Bank is hiking rates to try to crush inflation but at the same time this affects a much smaller slice of homeowners than it once did and rapid rise in mortgage costs is crushing a generation of homeowners. So, was another rate rise a wise move? How bad is the pain for borrowers? Is this not a patch on the '80s, or just as bad? Has the Bank of England even given its rate rises long enough to take effect? On this rate rise special podcast, Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Simon Lambert tackle all that and more.

The Hypnotist: Redefining Hunger
'I'm starving', I'm famished', 'I'm hungry': how often do we throw out these comments without thinking? Are they an expression of want (need to have) or desire (nice to have)? Much of Adam Cox's hypnotic work is in the field of helping to lose weight, so in this episode he speaks of what hunger really means for those impacted by war or famine, seeking to help redefine motives in our affluent societies where the real challenges are rather different.
