The 9 August 2017 was regarded by many as the 10 year anniversary of the global financial crisis. The European Central Bank (ECB) and the US Federal Reserve (Fed) ploughed c. £45 billion into financial markets that day as the credit crunch began.

It was my first visit to the country and, perhaps most surprisingly to me, was the difference in the prevailing political environment.

Don’t ignore the snap election but focus on the risk of the French ‘nightmare scenario’

After months of consistently denying the possibility of an early election, UK Prime Minister Theresa May yesterday revealed the UK will go to the polls on 8 June. The move is clearly a surprise but take a step back and it becomes entirely logical.
