A big few days for UK politics in a holiday shortened week

This will be a huge week for Theresa May as she begins the process of defending her deal and attempting to win over support, whilst fending off rebel Members of Parliament from within her own party who wish to oust her. The Prime Minister has confirmed she’ll also be heading across to Brussels where she will be finalising and potentially tweaking certain elements of the deal, she’s also stated that she wishes to sit down with Jean-Claude Junker to iron out some issues. In an interview with Sky News yesterday the under pressure PM confirmed that as far as she was aware the Conservative 1922 Committee did not have 48 letters pushing for a no-confidence motion. It will be very interesting to see how this develops, after all, this no-confidence saga has been rumbling on for months now. Rees-Mogg’s parading of his letter in front of journalists last week may well have been a tad premature.
It’s a holiday-shortened week in the US, this means no US dollar payments can be made on Thursday as the US will be observing Thanksgiving. It’s a quiet few days for economic numbers across the pond. Outside of housing and durable goods data the focus will mainly lie with ongoing trade concerns with China. These tit for tat exchanges have been going on for the majority of the year now, they gradually escalated and now it appears we’re approaching an inflection point.

Testimonials

Our Clients Say

"When deciding to buy a property in France, my husband and I failed to consider the implications of the currency exchange and to be honest, it was extremely daunting to know that the cost of the property could have increased significantly potentially wiping out any renovations we had planned had we sat on our hands and left it to chance. Thankfully, Dominic (our account manager) and the rest of the Cornhill team couldn’t have been more helpful, and as such helped us to understand our options and secure a price that puts our bank to shame. Always courteous and friendly, we don’t know what we would have done without them now!"

Samantha Johnson - Private Client

"I work to very tight margins in my business and as such currency volatility has a major impact on how well my business performs. After dealing with my bank for many years, I took the step of opening an account with Cornhill after meeting one of their team at an industry event. James took the time to explain the services and quickly highlighted what I was missing from my bank – proactivity and competitive pricing. It’s almost impossible to get through to someone at my bank without jumping through many hoops. Cornhill are always in touch at the right time, which helps me to time my currency purchases and make the most of moves in my favour. I now rest easy knowing I have a team of people working FOR my business and adding true value to it both in pricing terms and proactivity terms. My profits have increased and I know I am in good hands!"

Martin Fisher – FD of a Packaging Business

"My products are made abroad by trusted suppliers who I have worked with for many years. After a number of issues with my previous currency provider (payments being delayed), I decided to look at who else could help with my payments. Fortunately, I was introduced to Cornhill by a former colleague who uses their services. Since then, I haven’t looked back. Customer service is often overlooked in this ever-increasing digital age, but to know I have someone to call at the end of the phone who will listen to my query and take ownership of it for me is a breath of fresh air. Vivek and Greg have been reassuring and whenever I have a question for them, they are quick to respond and resolve."
