UK autos: large sales of small cars

Last year saw record results for the UK car industry with 2.56 million vehicle sales, valuing the market at around GBP33 billion. Small cars and diesel engines were the best performing segments, as British motorists seek lower running costs. However, other European markets have seen downward sales pressure this year and the likelihood is that the UK will suffer similarly in 2003.<BR />

UK B2B energy: new entrants learn their lesson

UK-based commercial energy supplier Electricity 4 Business has secured financial backing from Belgium's KBC Bank, while Morgan Stanley has agreed to manage its electricity trading activities. The company has done well to secure this support as, as the commodity cycle turns in favor of asset-light retailers, new entrants will need deep pockets to survive and prosper in a competitive UK market.

UK bancassurance: making progress, but not enough to worry IFAs

Despite its growth over the last three years, the UK bancassurance sector will not pose much of a threat to IFAs in the next five years. Bancassurance only plays a secondary role in the UK life and pensions market and depolarization has not had the effect initially anticipated. Only a few banks have put a significant amount of effort into bancassurance and this is unlikely to change anytime soon.

UK banking charges: regulator's tough stance risks nullifying consumer benefits

In a letter to the banking industry, the OFT has made it clear that the GBP12 limit on credit card penalty fees will not be applied automatically to overdrafts, as the regulator has not yet carried out enough research into this market. However the regulator is still likely to push for a general reduction in overdraft fees, raising the possibility that the banks may look elsewhere for profits.

UK banking industry: hold your branches!

Recent surveys conducted by YouGov and Datamonitor have highlighted the value of branch banking over purely online banking, with consumers showing a preference for face-to-face advice. This has major implications for an industry which appears to be moving away from the branch model, as well as for non-traditional players looking to enter the market without an already established branch network.

UK banking: branch closures threaten multi-channel approach

The number of bank branches in the UK has decreased by a fifth in the last decade as a drop in footfall and increased cost cutting leads to closures. The rise of internet banking has been blamed in part, but Datamonitor's research shows that despite high levels of online activity, consumers still welcome a multi-channel approach.
