The Shape of Things to Come

By February 23, 2021News & updates

Adam Brown was recently invited by Kevin Havelock of Royal Bank of Scotland to attend an economic update from Philip Bartlett, Economist at NatWest Group. We thought the following information and attached slides would be of interest to our connections:

  • Looking forward to the end of this lockdown and with the vaccine programme gathering momentum, the Royal Bank of Scotland team brought together several customers and stakeholders to assess the current economic situation and map the brighter outlook for Scotland’s economy.
  • The economic impact of the pandemic was not felt equally, and we assess the impact based on sector, location, age and skills.
  • We map the forecasted return to growth in the coming months and years and highlight some of the megatrends impacting recovery including Government debt and how we consume and work differently as some lockdown behaviours are here to stay.

Full details are here in the presentation The Shape of Things to Come by Senior Economist, Philip Bartlett.  For more information, please contact one of the Royal Bank team and you can subscribe to their Business Hub www.rbsbusinesshub.com for content relevant to your sector and to join future events.
