New European Union rules to make the cost of stock and bond research more transparent are saving millions of pounds for investors and have not materially cut coverage of smaller firms, Britain's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said on Thursday.
The Bank of England said Brexit uncertainty and slower world economic growth were increasingly causing Britain's economy to perform below its potential, and that a failure to reach a deal to leave the European Union by Oct. 31 would worsen the problem.
Consumer prices in Britain rose last month at the slowest rate since December 2016, a pre-Brexit boost to the spending power of households who are also seeing the fastest wage growth in 11 years.
A growing number of consumers are over-indebted and ill-equipped to cope with an economic shock, Britain's largest debt charity, StepChange, has warned after a record number of calls to its national helpline in the first half of this year.
If Britain falls into recession soon, perhaps after a no-deal Brexit, it might prove to be a lengthy one because the country's financially stretched households are unlikely to be able to lead a recovery.
