National Savings and Investments (NS&I) is today launching the first edition of its new Financial Advice Barometer – a quarterly survey of financial advisers. It finds that 83% of advisers are currently either ‘very confident’ or ‘fairly confident’ about the future prospects for the financial advice industry.
The old phrase ‘Good things come to those who wait’ has been especially pertinent to Premium Bond winners in 2016, as a number of Premium Bonds winners have won high value prizes from Bonds bought 30 years ago or older.
NS&I today published its un-audited quarterly results for the third quarter (October to December 2015) of the financial year 2015-16. NS&I delivered £2.3 billion of Net Financing in Q3 2015-16, giving a year-to-date total of £10.1 billion.
