UK interest rate rise: not retailers' main problem

UK investments: taxing times for the ISA

The last-minute sales of ISAs that usually occur before April 5 have failed to materialize. This strongly indicates that consumers, fed up with the uncertain stock market and high-profile losses, are turning their backs on investments. However, investors can expect incentives to tempt them back in the near future.
