Coutts Birmingham hosts client investment lunch


Coutts hosted a client investment lunch at its office in Birmingham last week for local entrepreneurs and business professionals.

The discussion centred around four main themes including eurozone stability, the interest rate outlook, trends in dividend yields and equity market valuations.
Perspectives were provided by London-based Simon Clark, Tailored Portfolio Services (TPS) manager from the investment team, and Miles Plumb, head of Coutts Birmingham. A round table discussion took place.
Plumb says: “We were delighted to be able to give guests access to the intellectual insight of our investment team. This seminar was in response to increased client demand, particularly as they look to our expertise in helping protect their wealth and investments against inflation in the current economic climate. At Coutts in Birmingham, we work seamlessly with our investment team to supplement their global market expertise with our knowledge of the issues and opportunities of operating within the local community.”
Clark says: “In recent years holders of cash have been hurt by the combination of inflation and low interest rates. The real value of cash has fallen by 11 per cent since 2009 and we think this pattern is set to continue. When interest rates initially rise, equities have tended to outperform, but not without an initial hiccup. The current performance of UK equities suggests markets expect rates to rise.”
