This week the decision for an independent Scotland was in the hands of the Scottish public. Debates from politicians and the media, focused on economic, legal and social needs as they assessed major impacts on both the UK and Scotland. What does this mean now we're staying together as the UK?
Well, RBS have agreed not to down tools and move south, David Cameron will be honouring his agreement of 'extra powers' for the Scottish government and the strength of the pound increased dramatically after the announcement. So for now, it would seem business continues as normal and we reap the rewards of our investments, with a (temporarily) stronger currency. What appears to be a bad day for Alex Salmond, is a great day for investors!
This week we wrote 'How to choose a financial adviser' for the Morningstar's Perspectives series, which focuses on financial education. We complied easy questions and helpful tips needed when trying to find the right adviser. You can read the full feature here.
