Nottingham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 11, 2008 -- âNorthern Rock has agreed new guarantee arrangements with the Bank of England and H.M Treasury, which brings enhanced protection for all our customers during the current instability in the financial markets. This protects all retail savings in all accounts, regardless of the amount deposited and applies to all existing and new products. You can be sure that all retail savings - for both existing and new customers - remain guaranteed, safe and secure. Everyone at Northern Rock continues to work hard to ensure our customers enjoy a high standard of service and we thank you for your confidence in us.
All very well indeed but the âcollateralâ damage caused by the recent unfortunate events in the market place have had their impact and left their mark. Martin Lewis AKA Money Saving Expert is a widely revered financial analyst whose online forum recently attracted, along with its current 2 million subscribers, the attention of the House of Commons which raised a specific motion supporting the site. Martin Lewis has been known to advise and to warn people who are all too readily trusting of the banking institution. He states that if you trust your bank, you end up getting its âbest productâ rather than the marketâs best. Banks and, surprisingly, many building societies too are sales based institutions, with target driven staff, and most of the population sadly still miss out on that fact; and make abysmal financial decisions based on it.
All this speculation and scrutiny leads us to the question of just where the best place to invest your hard earned money might be. Owing to affordability, cheap flights, rising equity, available cash reserves and increased political stability overseas, one increasingly popular solution lies in the overseas property investment market and looking at the attractive and often government guaranteed returns, itâs perhaps no surprise that more and more people are investing abroad. Savillsâ Second Homes Abroad report states that the prospects of future capital growth, particularly in emerging markets are a significant incentive. So, countries such as Finland, Ukraine and the Slovak Republic or perhaps even the Dominican Republic or Croatia hold particular appeal as well as a commanding an extraordinary premium of up to 37%.
