UK economic growth 2018 started more slowly than end of 2017. The UK economy news is normally weaker at the beginning of the calendar year. Most of the UKs economic growth comes as the calendar year progresses.
Governor of the Bank of England Mr Carney
Mr Mark Carney the head of the Bank of England says poor UK economic activity at the beginning of the calendar year 2018 was due to the weather and not UK economic climate.
In addition Mr Carney reports that all slack in the UK economy has been taken up and this is likely to push up UK prices and UK inflation.
With very high levels of employment low levels of unemployment and a million plus job vacancies unfilled it is more likely that wages will increase faster. UK employers will need to pay more to attract candidates and to keep existing staff.
Mr Carney paints a rosier future for the UK economy in 2018 with downside risks including global international trade war. UK interest rates more likely to rise later this year and this should boost value of the UK pound.

The Bigger Risk To Financial Services Jobs Is Automation Or Robots Not Brexit
Ignore the threat to financial services industry jobs of Brexit. You should be much more worried about the threat of robots. Job automation is the biggest finance sector threat and opportunity.
Job Automation Risk To Your Financial Sector Job
No doubt. Financial services industry is very important to the UK economy. If financial services jobs were lost other sectors would be affected. Fewer services jobs needed to service those in financial services jobs!
Many jobs in financial services are high paid jobs. Top British bankers are paid much more than elsewhere. Resistance to moving to Germany is as much about personal reasons. The UK economy may or may not suffer after Brexit. Bankers will suffer.
However people in financial services are facing automation existential threat. Never mind moving to Germany your job is going full stop!
FinTech company jobs will be prevalent. Bankers less so. Most financial services jobs can be done faster cheaper better. Robots will be
more reliable and
after a few years significantly cheaper
How long do you think the C Suite will keep your job. If job automation is better for bonuses your job is toast!
Existing financial services jobs are like UK miners jobs. The buildings will remain but the people in them will be different. Cyber security and fintech risk managers will be plentiful.
Banks insurers and funds will need cyber experts. They will stop external and internal threats to money.
Fintech risk managers will direct risk appetite and risk tolerance
C suite virtual bankers insurers fund managers will be wealthier
Wealthier investors but more at risk of systemic industry collapse
Software developers will frequent the bars and restaurants. Existing financial services people will be there waiting on tables!
Most existing financial services jobs will be lost to job automation. Do not doubt this for a second!
However it is not all doom and gloom. The key to survive is to move into the new financial services sector jobs. Some new financial services jobs do not exist right now! You must change your skills set to take advantage and survive.
Its not just the top bankers that need worry. Indeed they are the ones most likely to easily morph. Financial services jobs most at risk
Financial and investment advice
Any financial services sector job your current phone app replaces!
Consumers have a choice to use financial services apps and websites. In future the consumer will have no choice. Financial services consumers will not speak to people. People will be gone replaced by job automation. The robots will have taken over the financial services world!
There is no point in complaining. No point arguing with us. Better spending your time reskilling instead. Stop worrying about Brexit. Start retraining to overcome threat of job automation. Learn tech skills not German!

Looking for a way to disrupt the commercial business insurance marketplace? Could Amazon Apple or Google sell commercial insurance policies cheaper and better? You are damn right they could. All three have pots of cash they could invest in selling business insurance more cost effectively. Will it happen perhaps not.
Once banks sort themselves out a while away I give you that they could become dominant virtual insurance companies in the commercial insurance marketplace. What about
Apple and Google will take over the automotive marketplace in the future if Tesla are not too busy trying to get to Mars. Maybe too busy to attack the commercial business insurance marketplace but their innovative approach is a very good example of how traditional thinking in business could result in an obsolete company. BMW Ford et al none of them are immune and neither are insurance companies or insurance brokers.
Maybe your clients will buy their commercial insurance whilst on a flight across the channel on a business trip to USA. The insurer? Norway State fund is more stable than any insurance company. It might even take over a smaller insurance provider and use it as a base to disrupt the insurance marketplace.
Is the traditional insurance marketplace too big to be attacked? Well AIG were not too big to fail. Smaller players in the insurance marketplace are not too big to suffer failure from different cause disruptive innovation.
Traditional ways of selling and distributing insurance cover to businesses are working
However could they also be done differently? We believe so and are seeking insurance provider partners to work with us on designing innovative ways to market and sell commercial insurance online locally and globally.
Integrating commercial insurance in holistic risk management could head off insurance marketplace disruptors from wherever they emerge.
However traditional ways of using insurance cover to help give business leaders a quiet nights sleep may be too conservative to survive.
Our point of contact to discuss more profitable ways to delivering insurance protection is Keith Lewis.

The long list of failures to manage enterprise risks is too depressing to list here. Such a waste of time, money and life! What an opportunity cost to corporate entities and society.
The only long lasting positive thing to come out of each major risk event, or negative aggregation risk outcome, is legislation
Our present crop of senior managers, executives, fund managers and politicians aren’t any worse, or better, than previous ones. Talking a good game about risk, governance or compliance GRC is often followed by another failure to manage risks with all stakeholders in mind.
Eventually the general public start looking for heads to lop-off and new legislation is written that can often be more risk-averse than it needed to be, but The People got sick of the incompetence at the top and “something had to be done”.
Business leaders and politicians often moan about statutory legislation, but if managers could manage risks better we wouldn’t need more legislation. Recent examples of major risk events, or aggregation of regular failure to manage smaller risk events, are more examples of our key risk decision-makers failing and more legislation is required to fill the gap in risk management knowledge and/or failing corporate risk management culture.
22nd February 2018 – Member’s of UK’s Parliament (MPs) Question Pensions Regulator In Public
The Pensions Regulator head with responsibility for monitoring pensions and protecting pensioners in UK admitted to MPs that the Pensions Regulator needed to be “clearer, quicker and tougher” in using its powers to force companies to pay more into their pension schemes.
As an example of the Pensions Regulator’s failure one could highlight Carillion where many thousands of pensioners face reduced pensions. Carillion’s pension Trustees asked the Pension Regulator in 2010 and 2013 to force Carillion to put more money into it’s pension scheme. The Pension Regulator twice refused and the Pension Regulator CEO since 2015 admitted that it should have done more to extract higher pension contributions from Carillion’s executive management team.
Carillion’s executives have claimed that a failing Qatar contract was one of the main causes of Carillion’s collapse, but auditors KPMG say that was not a cause of Carillion’s collapse.
KPMG tried to defend their auditing of Carillion’s accounts in 2016 and 2017, but the business select committee chairperson said she would “not hire you (KPMG) to audit the contents of my fridge”.
Much criticism has been expressed about the system of corporate governance in UK’s biggest companies. Who is responsible for the loss of pension benefits for Carillion pensioners is not clear, but what is clear that the current system of corporate governance and risk management is not working for stakeholders like pensioners, majority of employees, contractors, shareholders and corporate customers. The winners are winning big and the losers are losing big!
20th February 2018 – UK’s Pension Regulator Ignored Trustees Of Collapsed Outsourcing Firm Carillion
The pensions regulator twice ignored requests from trustees of Carillion to force the company to fill Carillion’s pension black hole.
The pensions regulator has come under fire from UK’s members of parliament for failing to take steps to protect Carillion’s pension scheme members, especially as they were asked twice by the trustees of the pension before Carillion collapsed. When Carillion collapsed, the firm had pension liabilities of around £3 billion.
“With characteristic alacrity, the Pensions Regulator started its arduous process of chasing money down from Carillion a few days after it was formally announced there was no money left,” Frank Field, chair of parliament’s Work and Pensions Committee.
BusinessRiskTV.com Are Oxfam Carillion and Growing Skills Gap in UK USA Japan just some of the more recent examples of the senior management malaise, or examples of systemic failure of current crop of capitalists?
Every day you can find multiple great ideas that could potentially disruptive the current way of doing things. My favourites at the moment are flying modes of transport that could easily replace vehicles that have to travel on roads and flying machines that briefly go to space to get to their destination quicker. They may seem like far off technological developments, but the technology works now. Its flight rules and regulations that will hold them back to protect carmakers and airplane makers not technology risks.
Everyday new innovative ideas and products flood onto the market. For most it will be like Tomorrow’s World – the innovative ideas will not be sustainable. We want to work with people who want to take over the world – in a good way!
Your brand maybe vulnerable to others who have been thinking differently, or from changes to the marketplace. It may fail cause your performance ain’t good enough, or because your competitors change the rules of the game.
How you fail may not matter too much after you’ve failed. It will be too late to consider what you are doing wrong. Kodak didn’t want to change when they had to change to survive. They were making too much money from photographs to change to embrace digital photography. Market changes can kill the best businesses.
The best form of defence is often attack
