They still don’t know what the future holds and are uncertain about how the mood of fiscal austerity will impact on the economic recovery.”The survey’s confidence index, which ranks overall responses to the survey, fell from 28.1 points during the last quarter to 25.9 this quarter, indicating that businesses are weary about future growth.However, the survey also found that 1.7 per cent of London firms saw revenue grow over the year, while 1.5 per cent reported a rise in profits. center_img whatsapp Tuesday 31 August 2010 8:49 pm Show Comments ▼ Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof KCS-content last_img read more

Where I’ll be saving and investing my money in 2021

first_imgLarge-cap dividend stocks such as Unilever, Diageo, and Reckitt Benckiser. These provide me with portfolio stability. And I can reinvest the dividends they pay to compound my wealth. Large-cap growth stocks. I already own Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon. I’d like to buy more. I’d also like to add some other growth stocks to my portfolio, such as Adobe, Shopify, and Nike. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Those with money to save and invest face no shortage of options heading into 2021. Not only are there many saving options (ISAs, pensions, etc), but there are also lots of asset classes and investment structures (funds, ETFs, investment trusts, etc.) to consider.Here, I’m going to reveal my saving and investing plan for 2021. And look at where I’ll be putting my own money next year.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…2021: where I’m going to saveLet me start by explaining where I’m going to save in 2021. I have a simple plan.First, I plan to contribute £4,000 to my Lifetime ISA to max out my annual allowance. This will get me a near-instant bonus of £1,000. Then, I’ll put my next £4,000 in savings into my wife’s Lifetime ISA (she’ll thank me later). By saving £8k into these ISAs, we’ll pick up government bonuses of £2k, taking the total amount saved to £10k.After that, I’ll split my savings between my Stocks and Shares ISA and my Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP). The advantage of the Stocks and Shares ISA is that it provides a high level of flexibility. This year, for example, I pulled £10k out of my SA to help with a house down-payment. That kind of flexibility is valuable.The advantage of the SIPP is that it’s extremely tax-efficient. Normally, contributions into a SIPP come with tax relief. However, I actually make contributions directly from my limited company as I’m a freelancer. These are treated as a business expense meaning they reduce my tax bill.This LISA/Stocks and Shares ISA/SIPP combination works very well for me. I get the bonus top-ups from the LISA, flexibility from the Stocks and Shares ISA, and tax savings from the SIPP. I’ll point out that I use Hargreaves Lansdown for all three accounts, which makes it easy to manage my money.Where I’ll be investing in 2021In terms of where I’ll be investing, my preferred asset class is stocks. Over the long-run, stocks tend to generate excellent returns of around 7-10% per year. With that kind of return, money grows quickly.I don’t just invest in UK stocks however. These days, I am very much a global investor. I mostly invest directly in shares. However, I also invest via funds, ETFs and investment trusts.In 2021, there are three types of stocks I plan to buy. Disruptive small-cap growth stocks. These kinds of stocks are riskier but they have higher growth potential. One small-cap I want to buy more of is Upwork. It operates a freelance employment platform. With the ‘gig economy’ expanding rapidly, I think it has enormous potential.

Johan Goosen returns to Springboks starting XV to take on Argentina

first_imgFriday Aug 19, 2016 Johan Goosen returns to Springboks starting XV to take on Argentina Allister Coetzee has named his Springbok team to take on Argentina in the opening weekend of the Rugby Championship on Saturday. The starting line up includes returns for Bryan Habana, Johan Goosen, Oupa Mahoje and Lood de Jager. Prop Julian Redelinghuys will earn his first start for the Springboks, after having previously been capped four times off the bench. He comes in at tighthead as replacement for the injured Frans Malherbe, who is struggling with a neck injury.Lock De Jager has recovered from the calf injury he sustained against Ireland in June and takes over the No 5 jersey from Pieter-Steph du Toit, who will provide cover from the bench. The third change in the pack sees the return to the starting line-up of Mohoje as replacement for Siya Kolisi, who recently underwent ankle surgery.In the back division, Springbok record try scorer Bryan Habana will run out in his 118th Test after he was named as left wing, while he was also confirmed as the Springbok vice-captain.The versatile Goosen, who is equally at home at flyhalf and centre, has been entrusted with the fullback duties, the same position where he played in his previous outing for the Boks, in 2014 against Italy.“Argentina are one of the leading rugby nations if you consider that they have reached the semi-finals of two Rugby World Cups,” said coach Coetzee. “They are renowned for their strong scrummaging and mauling, very good defensively and have developed an attacking style of play which will test our defence.”Kickoff at Mbombela Stadium, Nelspruit, Sat 20 Aug, 17:05 local, 12:05 ART, 15:05 GMT, 01:05* AEST, 03:05* NZSTSPRINGBOK TEAM:15 Johan Goosen, 14 Ruan Combrinck, 13 Lionel Mapoe, 12 Damian De Allende, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Faf de Klerk, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Oupa Mohoje, 6 Francois Louw, 5 Lood de Jager, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Julian Redelinghuys, 2 Adriaan Strauss (captain), 1 Tendai Mtawarira Replacements: 16 Bongi Mbonambi, 17 Steven Kitshoff, 18 Vincent Koch, 19 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 20 Jaco Kriel, 21 Rudy Paige, 22 Juan de Jongh, 23 Jesse KrielARGENTINA TEAM:15 Joaquín Tuculet, 14 Santiago Cordero, 13 Matías Orlando, 12 Juan Martín Hernández, 11 Manuel Montero, 10 Nicolás Sánchez, 9 Martín Landajo, 8 Facundo Isa, 7 Juan Manuel Leguizamon, 6 Pablo Matera, 5 Tomas Lavanini, 4 Matías Alemanno, 3 Ramiro Herrera, 2 Agustín Creevy, 1 Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro.

Saturday’s Test will be the eighth Rugby Championship match between the two countries. Of the previous seven, South Africa won five with one match drawn and a loss in Durban last year, the first ever loss against Argentina since their first Test in 1993.The Springboks’ record is as follows: Played 7, Won 5, Lost 1, Drawn 1, Points for 209, Points against 126, Tries for 21, Tries against 11, Average score 30-18.Milestones:Bryan Habana needs one try to extend his own tournament career record to 20, which will equal 100 tournament career points. One try will also extend his own world record for most Test tries as a wing to 65. He needs three appearances in this tournament to reach 50 tournament appearances.Eben Etzebeth will play in his 25th consecutive Test match.Rugby Championship debuts: Ruan Combrinck, Faf de Klerk and Julian Redelinghuys. Also Steven Kitshoff, Jaco Kriel, Bongi Mbonambi and Rudy Paige, should they be used off the bench.Adriaan Straus will be the 13th Springbok captain in the competition.The stadium:Mbombela Stadium’s seating capacity is 40 929.The Springbok record at the stadium is: Played 2, Won 2, Points for 61, Points against 47, Tries for 7, Tries against 5, Average score 31-24.Full press conference with comments from Coetzee and Habana (17mins)credit: supersportADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Springboks Related Articles 84 WEEKS AGO Pieter Steph du Toit named World Rugby Player… 87 WEEKS AGO Josh Larsen sees red for no-arms ruck charge… 94 WEEKS AGO Throwback Thursday: Relive the Battle of… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

For the first time, anyone can access the sort of up-to-the-minute, organised information PolicyMogul offers. It’s a breath of fresh air, a healthy dose of democratic access at a time when millions of businesses and charities are affected by significant policy changes.”  557 total views,  2 views todaycenter_img The service is the brainchild of PolicyMogul’s founder and CEO Elliot Robinson, who said:“Through clever use of technology we can offer confidence to users they will miss nothing in the policy-forming arena. Policy decisions affect lives and livelihoods in unforeseen ways and charities play such a vital role in protecting the interests of people and communities, who may otherwise have no voice. We’re giving all charities access to information that was once only available to those who could afford it.”“PolicyMogul is designed to cater for the mass of organisations who would love to be in the loop on political and policy developments, but previously felt that was simply impossible. We’re using technology to do what has traditionally been done by people, so we can offer comprehensive intelligence, faster and for less.“We hope smaller businesses and charities, and the people whose lives they benefit, will be the biggest winners. As a free service, we’re offering anyone who needs it access to the heart of our law-making democracy.

InSight is the first mission dedicated to investigating the deep interior of Mars. Image credit: NASA/JPL-CaltechJet Propulsion Laboratory will work in conjunction with France’s space agency to redesign an instrument of a spacecraft that previously failed before its scheduled take-off on a mission to study Mars’ deep interior.The InSight mission, which was scrapped last December due to a vacuum leak in its prime science instrument, has been rescheduled to launch in May 2018 and touchdown on Mars in November, according to a statement released by NASA to the media. Its goal was to help scientists understand the evolution and formation of rocky planets.The tool that malfunctioned — called the SEIS instrument — is designed to measure ground movement as small as half of the radius of a hydrogen atom and requires a perfect vacuum seal around its three main sensors in order to resist the Red Planet’s rigid weather, according the statement.Scientists with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory will focus on redesigning, developing and qualifying the SEIS’ evacuated container and the electrical feedthroughs that failed previously while CNES, France’s space department, will be responsible for integrating its sensors into the container, according to media release.“Our robotic scientific explorers such as InSight are paving the way toward an ambitious journey to send humans to the Red Planet,” said Geoff Yoder, acting associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, in the press release. “It’s gratifying that we are moving forward with this important mission to help us better understand the origins of Mars and all the rocky planets, including Earth.”According to NASA, he budget for the original InSight mission was $675 million. The two-year delay and instrument-redesign project tacked on another $154 million, which may impact the budget for future missions in fiscal years 2017-2020“We’ve concluded that a replanned InSight mission for launch in 2018 is the best approach to fulfill these long-sought, high-priority science objectives,” said Jim Green, director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division in the media release.CNES President Jean-Yves Le Gall agreed with Green, adding that learning about Mars’ internal structure is of great significance to the scientific community.“This confirmation of the launch plan for InSight is excellent news and an unparalleled opportunity to learn more about the internal structure of the Red Planet, which is currently of major interest to the international science community,” he said in the released statement.
