In the second of this series we took a closer look at the macro economy and the factors that are contributing to credit market disruption. Andrew Goodwin, Chief UK Economist from Oxford Economics analysed the impact of lockdown, the implications of recent news about vaccines, extension of the furlough scheme and the BoE’s decision to extend QE. While Steven Upton, a Senior Consultant for Equifax UK revisited some of the credit market data we looked at in the first webinar, specifically searches and credit card data, to see if consumers were faring any differently in the wake of new government rules and the run up to Christmas. We also looked at consumer Open Banking transaction data for a different angle on our credit insights. Catch up and review the slides here.
