Post-Election Optimism

Commentators are suggesting that the General Election result will lead to an increase in business activity, particularly mergers and acquisitions.

It is thought that businesses were reluctant to commit to ventures in the run-up to the vote, as many anticipated a hung parliament and uncertain coalition negotiations.  However, the continuity of government is expected to provide the consistency which breeds confidence in the deals sector. 

The Chancellor, George Osborne, has confirmed that his Budget will be announced on 8 July, with a view to delivering the promises made in the Conservative manifesto as soon as possible.

At Forbes we have seen a substantial increase in the number of sales and acquisitions that we are presently instructed on which is fantastic news for the local market.
