Bob’s Weekly Update

Dear Bondholders

This week we have little to report so we are taking a well earned rest. My iMac is also still not too well. After several visits to Apple where they have tried to discover why the screen blacks out, and still not rectified it has gone back to Apple to try a discover this intermittent failure. Hopefully, I will have it back next week.

Both Bob and I would like to wish you all a Happy and Restful Easter

Kind regards

Ian

 

Bob’s Weekly Update

Dear Bondholders,

Last week I wrote “This is one of those funny weeks were there is not a great deal of news about, except for the Budget.” Well this week you can replace the word Budget with the ghastly prospect  of even more interviews which the media, filled with their overly large view of their own importance, will foist upon us. I walked to the supermarket this morning, and found the streets nearly empty of vehicles and Sainsbury’s was quiet. I am beginning to wonder if a lot of folk have gone into hiding until May 8th.

However…. I do have some ‘Regulatory’ comment for you.

Dear Bondholders,

This is one of those funny weeks were there is not a great deal of news about, except for the Budget. I think there are some good pensions things in it, although they are rather late in the day for most of us. The flexible ISA is one thing that a lot of us may be able to take advantage of, we will see.

Dear Bondholders,

Last week there was a bit of drama as our server provider went bust on us. Ian had to get up a notice for you all, and recover all our material before it was lost. He called me while I was in hospital having a wound dressed, (I had tried to cut a finger off two days before), so I was of absolutely no use whatsoever.

Dear Bondholders,

Very much an EEA weighted news round up for you this week. I make no apology for this as, although we only have a smallish number of ARM bondholders with holdings in EEA, the outcome of their class action against the FCA has huge implications for us.  Irrespective of whether you are in T1 or T11, or anything in between, we were all victims of the FSA’s failure to regulate  and the destructive comments of Ms Cole. I will continue to give an additional voice to the EEA case for as long as it continues, and wish them well.
