May ready for tough talks over Brexit

Recommended Posts

 
I linked to an article earlier this year on this particular investment fund increasing it's investments considerably in the UK.


With the drop in sterling, UK companies are cheap at the moment when you are valuing them in a foreign currency.

One of the possible options for our future trading arrangements with the EU could be joining EFTA with a big stumbling block to joining being the agreement of Norway so them having large investments here is promising for such a deal and would mean their investments increasing significantly in value since it would be very positive for sterling.

Not stopping the Norwegians investing in the UK

 

 

OSLO (Reuters) - Norway’s $830 billion (£584 billion) sovereign wealth fund, the world’s biggest, does not see the prospect of Britain leaving the European Union as a significant risk to its investments, its chief executive told Reuters on Wednesday.

The comments came as the fund reported an overall fourth-quarter gain but said it may need to support government spending to the tune of 80 billion crowns (£6.6 billion) this year.

There is a big difference between manufacturing investment and this type of investment for profit.

The fund invests in equities, bonds and real estate globally.

I am sure the Toyota and Nissan workers will sleep better on that information.

It will no doubt come as a shock to you to learn that this has been the case for a long time now - wealthy companies in wealthy countries (at least for those at the 'top'...) selling arms and misery to other countries....

Just a reminder........He's the man.....He did an excellent interview on radio4 this morning. When asked if he worried about the uncertainty as a result of Brexit he said business is all about uncertainty and uncertainty spells opportunity. He also said  the uncertainty is caused by Barnier refusing to respond to the UK's positive proposals.

Yes, an opportunity for Asian companies to buy up what little remains of UK industries at rock bottom prices.

There are two arguments to consider. One is re the the arms trade per se, and that might be left to another thread on another day. The second is specifically what impact, if any, Brexit might have on the UK arms trade. There is a suggestion that the removal of EU regulations re trade with countries with poor human rights records might encourage export to those countries. Maybe. What Michael Fallon is actually burbling on about difficult to decipher other than mood music.

James Dyson has opened 2017 a new technology center in Singapore. The UK technology company has invested 352 million euros in the research facility and plans to increase the number of employees on site by 50 percent. The engineers will work on state-of-the-art manufacturing, software and robotics solutions in the perfectly equipped laboratories.

 

Company founder James Dyson explains: "It is no coincidence that we are investing further in Singapore. Here, the smartest minds in the world work on the development of artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, flow dynamics and vision systems to unite hardware, electronics and software.

 

From the UK as location, he does not seem so enthusiastic.
