Autumn Budget 2017

A focus on investment in technology, young people and long-term prosperity

In today’s Budget, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond spoke about a “future full of change, full of new challenges and above all, a future full of new opportunities”. There were the usual quips along the way in an animated House of Commons. But to summarise, the government promised to continue to invest in infrastructure and technology, build the homes people need, and help families and young people with the cost of living.

There were no major changes to personal taxation, savings and investments. Pensions were left alone – news that will be welcomed by most. Instead, the Chancellor focused on encouraging investment into high risk knowledge intensive companies that face the greatest difficulties in raising financing.
