Karen Barrett, Chief Executive of unbiased.co.uk, comments on the rate of consumer price index (CPI) inflation increasing to 2.9% in june

16 Jul 2013

“With inflation now at a fourteen month high, cash savings and deposits are struggling to keep up. But despite the current low-interest environment and lack of inflation-busting savings accounts our latest data shows that cash savers are holding back from looking at all their options, with nearly two thirds of savers (61%) staying away from investing.  With the continuing squeeze on finances, it’s crucial that savers are considering all the options to ensure their money is working hard for them. We know that the potential risk factor of the markets is putting savers off, as nearly a third (31%) of cash savers feel investing is too risky, while one in five (20%) are worried about making the wrong choices.  But finding an expert who specialises in investing will give you the right guidance and advice to make sure your choices are appropriate for your current financial situation.
