Legal and General Forecasts Recession

Published: 5/23/2010

The investment management team at Legal and General are anticipating recession in the UK as early as this year.

The economic indicators the Legal and General people are looking at are highlighting an imminent recession. These indicators include the level of borrowing, reduced spending and the relative inability to access extra funds. In combination these factors are really making the British public take notice of the economy and consider their own positions.

Further driving the problem is the fact that the global economy is struggling, so it is not an isolated UK issue. Consumers in the UK are keeping a wary eye on the situation says Legal and General, which automatically means they are less free with their spending and tend to be much more conservative in their decisions.
