UK manufacturing rose in November as the construction sector faced a slowdown

Construction output fell by 0.2 per cent compared with October, as non-housing repair and maintenance fell, continuing a downward trend started in 2014. However, new work increased slightly, with public and priate housing both recording increases.Read more: The manufacturing industry had some of the biggest job losses last year.A decline in private commercial work also dragged on growth in construction output, with the second-largest contribution to the decline.A pause in output from the Buzzard oil field caused a steep fall in overall industrial production in October.Pharmaceutical production grew by 11.4 per cent to contribute towards the overall rise – although the ONS noted that large contract sizes mean the sector experiences large volatility.

The ONS credits growth in pharmaceuticals, transport equipment, and rubber and plastic for the increase.Read more: British car manufacturing speeds ahead to highest level since 1999Senior ONS statistician Kate Davies said: “Today’s figures continue to paint a mixed picture of the UK’s economic performance. Production saw significant growth, mainly down to increased oil and gas output as the Buzzard field came back online along with a boost from the volatile pharmaceuticals industry.“However, the trade deficit widened as imports of transport equipment, chemicals and portable computers helped eclipse rising exports, while falls in repair work and commercial building led to a small overall decline in construction.”Lee Hopley, chief economist at EEF, said: “Validating recent business surveys, the official statistics are pointing to a pretty positive end to 2016 for UK manufacturing. The solid month on month growth in production in November appears broad based across the industry and, even taking account of the erratic pharmaceuticals output numbers, we should see output expand over the year overall.“Similarly, the trade figures confirm that a rosy combination of improving demand indicators in key markets and a weaker exchange rate are providing a supportive boost to manufactured exports,” she added. Wednesday 11 January 2017 10:03 am The UK economy is showing signs of mixed form, as production output increased in November, although construction output showed a small decline month on month.Production was estimated to have increased by 2.1 per cent compared with October, with oil and gas capacity coming back on track after a maintenance period and a strong showing in the pharmaceutical industry, according to figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

The UK is facing a “workforce crisis” if immigration levels fall, according to this consultancy

Cutting migration into the UK will leave the country facing a “workforce crisis”, according to a new analysis from consultancy Mercer.Modelling different scenarios after Brexit, the firm found that even keeping net migration at current levels will fail to stem the challenges of the UK’s ageing working population. Read More: Digital defence school to bolster UK’s cyber ranksHoping to create a “wake-up call” for both ministers and businesses, the firm created four migration and ageing scenarios, ranging from “no change” to “the Great EU Migration”, the latter of which would see large numbers of EU-born and non-EU born workers leave the UK thanks to an unwelcome social environment.Because UK-born workers have also left the UK in higher numbers than return since the 1960s, this scenario would see the UK’s working population shrink, while the overall population increases.“The inability of certain sectors of the UK economy to fill roles could be dramatic,” Mercer said. whatsapp Mark Sands Reductions in the size of the UK’s workforce would be expected to create major challenges for the UK economy, Mercer said, while the increasing age of workers mean that more will be required to spend their income on supporting older citizens.Read More: UK pensions deficits soar on Brexit woesBut firms can counteract this scenario with investment into increasing productivity, automation and sectors of society under-represented in the workforce.Mercer partner Gary Simmons said: “There is a tremendous opportunity for far-sighted organisations to begin determining and implementing clear plans in response.“If they do not act now, they could potentially find they do not have their share of the people and skills they need in future.” The UK is facing a “workforce crisis” if immigration levels fall, according to this consultancy Monday 6 February 2017 1:00 am Share whatsapp read more

Growth in the US service sector hit a five-month low in February

whatsapp Growth in the US service sector hit a five-month low in February US services experienced a slowdown in February, as growth dipped to a five-month low with companies becoming more cautious about spending and hiring.IHS Markit’s US services purchasing managers’ index (PMI) fell to 53.8, but the indicator still signals healthy expansion of output in the world’s largest economy – any figure below 50 denotes contraction. whatsapp However, companies continue to report buoyant domestic demand, especially from consumers, and continue to take on staff in reasonable numbers, the rate of hiring having slowed only modestly. The February survey is broadly consistent with 175,000 payroll jobs being added, which represents a pace of hiring that will do little to deter the Fed from delaying its next rate hike. Taken together with January’s indicator, the PMI readings suggest the US economy is growing at a respectable annualised rate in the first quarter, approaching 2.5 per cent, said Chris Williamson, chief business economist at IHS Markit.”The burning question is whether the February slowdown merely represents some pay-back after a strong start to the year for US businesses, or whether it’s the start of a more entrenched slowdown.”Williamson said a warning clue lies with the business expectations index, which shows business optimism has eased back to its post-election level, suggesting companies are becoming more cautious when it comes to spending and hiring. Friday 3 March 2017 3:23 pm The figure was down from January’s 14-month high of 55.6 and below the long-run series average of 55.3. However, activity was bolstered by new contract wins and the launch of new products.Rates of expansion in activity, new work and employment eased in February, but the expansion of new work was enough to push service providers to take on new staff.Despite optimism being the weakest since September 2016, the index was still in positive territory by a comfortable margin. Improving demand, new products, innovation, business expansions and the end of the election cycle were all mentioned as factors expected to drive activity growth, Markit’s report said.

The bank will make an accounting profit of €3m (£2.7m) on the sale, it said today.The UK operation will be rebranded to be called Cynergy Bank, with the new owners signing a cooperation agreement to continue servicing existing customers in the UK.The UK bank currently counts around 70,000 retail customers and 5,000 businesses among its clients, mostly based in London and the South East. It provides specialist property and business lending, as well as retail mortgage products, savings and current accounts.Bal Sohal, one of the leaders of the consortium, said the investors “see significant opportunities for growth and to better address the needs of small businesses in the UK” in the banking sector. Nick Fahy, chief executive officer of BOC UK, said the sale was “a positive development for the UK bank”.”The sale to Cynergy will enable us to focus on growing our franchise across enterprising business owners and savers in the UK, including the underserved property and SME market,” he said.HSBC acted as financial advisor and Norton Rose Fulbright as legal advisor to Bank of Cyprus on the deal, while PwC acted as financial advisor and Eversheds Sutherland as legal advisor to Cynergy.Bank of Cyprus shares fell by 1.2 per cent in trading today. whatsapp Jasper Jolly Share Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoZen HeraldEllen Got A Little Too Personal With Blake Shelton, So He Said ThisZen HeraldUndoinvesting.comThe Military Spent $1 Billion On this New Vehicle, And Here’s The First Lookinvesting.comUndomoneycougar.comDiana’s Butler Reveals Why Harry Really Married Meghanmoneycougar.comUndoTotal PastThis Woman’s Obituary Was So Harsh, Her Son Was Left ReelingTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoOne-N-Done | 7-Minute Workout7 Minutes a Day To a Flat Stomach By Using This 1 Easy ExerciseOne-N-Done | 7-Minute WorkoutUndoNoteableyFaith Hill’s Daughter Is Probably The Prettiest Woman In The WorldNoteableyUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndo read more

Mark Kleinman’s big predictions for the Square Mile in 2019

first_imgFriday 11 January 2019 1:10 am •Another difficult year lies in store for Britain’s struggling outsourcers, but there will not be another collapse on the scale of Carillion. Interserve, the most vulnerable major player right now, will strike a deal with creditors that will see them take control, with RMD Kwikform, its prized subsidiary, being handed to lenders. Amey will be sold by Spanish owner Ferrovial to a private equity consortium. And Mitie’s turnaround under chief executive Phil Bentley will draw interest from at least one bidder.•Marks & Spencer, Direct Line Group, Greene King, Aviva and 3i Group will be among the blue-chip companies naming new chief executives, although few of those who depart will do so from a position of strength. In that exclusive club will be Simon Borrows, who will quit as the boss of 3i having done an exceptional job reviving its private equity investment strategy. And Paul Geddes, who departs Direct Line after a successful decade, will be rewarded with another big chief exec job outside the insurance sector.•The Government’s target of offloading its entire stake in Royal Bank of Scotland during this parliament had barely been published last autumn before the assumptions underpinning it began to look ambitious. Events this year will reinforce that sense, with Brexit-related uncertainty preventing the shares from gaining sufficient ground to justify further disposals. There will be better news elsewhere in the Whitehall disposal programme, with UK Asset Resolution offloading the last of its remaining mortgage portfolios by the year-end.•Equity markets will continue to fare poorly throughout the year, driven lower by repeated flare-ups in trade tensions. The FTSE 100 will close at 6,450 points, a disappointing outcome given that global economic growth figures will surprise (marginally) on the upside. Crude oil will end the year at $62 a barrel; and sterling will end the year in the doldrums, with a pound worth just $1.15.£ Mark Kleinman is the City Editor of Sky News. @MarkKleinmanSky Mark Kleinman’s big predictions for the Square Mile in 2019 Sir Martin Sorrell’s WPP exit, Unilever’s HQ U-turn, Melrose’s swoop for GKN: 2018 was a year full of surprises in the City. And while forecasting might be a fool’s errand, here are 10 predictions for the year ahead.•Theresa May will decisively lose next week’s “meaningful vote” on Brexit: that’s not a punt that will win many plaudits for prescience. But after that, there is a serious risk that her Government unravels as her plan B fails to corral substantial support from across the Commons. A General Election in 2019 is as likely as not, and a Labour victory far from out of the question. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryZen HeraldEllen Got A Little Too Personal With Blake Shelton, So He Said ThisZen HeraldMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastJohn Wick Stuntman Reveals The Truth About Keanu ReevesTotal Pastmoneycougar.comDiana’s Butler Reveals Why Harry Really Married Meghanmoneycougar.comNoteableyFaith Hill’s Daughter Is Probably The Prettiest Woman In The WorldNoteableybonvoyaged.comTotal Jerks: These Stars Are Horrible People.bonvoyaged.cominvesting.comThe Military Spent $1 Billion On this New Vehicle, And Here’s The First Lookinvesting.com City A.M.’s opinion pages are a place for thought-provoking views and debate.

After becoming a non-executive director of Easyjet and Rio Tinto, Greene will join the ranks of FTSE 100 chairs this year, replacing John McAdam at United Utilities. That said, she will, at the end of the year, still be one of barely a handful of female chairs in Britain’s blue-chip share index.•Thomas Cook will survive the year – perhaps. Booking volumes early in the new year will determine whether the venerable tour operator can avert the collapse from which it narrowly escaped eight years ago. Directors will sanction the sale of its airline in the spring as part of a financing package that will provide another medium-term stay of execution.•During another year of turmoil for the high street, the most significant shift will come in the form of Sir Philip Green’s exit from Britain’s retail sector. The tycoon will strike a series of deals in the autumn to carve up his Top Shop-to-Dorothy Perkins empire, while injecting a substantial sum into the group’s pension scheme. A tail-between-the-legs retreat? Perhaps, but a sensible one given another tsunami of bankruptcies across the industry.•Brexit’s impact on the City’s dealmaking fraternity will be profound, at least in the first quarter of 2019. The UK will slump down the M&A league tables as private equity sponsors and corporate chiefs alike sit on their hands amid currency volatility and economic uncertainty. The picture will look brighter after that, though, as deal activity is strengthened by a significant number of public-to-private takeovers. It won’t be enough to elevate the UK to more than half of 2018’s M&A level by value.•Edward Bramson is not known for his shy and retiring nature, so his campaign for a board seat at Barclays will be voluble. It won’t succeed, however; with a change of chairman scheduled for the spring, the bank will do enough to persuade leading investors that Bramson’s strategy is unlikely to strengthen the Barclays investment case. Regulators will also exert quiet pressure to deter Bramson from a more aggressive proxy battle. whatsapp Opinion Sharelast_img read more
