Tomorrow morning at 09:30, the Bank of England is publishing the latest mortgage approvals and SME finance data. We want your thoughts (just answer the bits that are relevant to you), e.g.
- What were the main themes of the mortgage market in the closing stages of 2021?
- Are rising rates and soaring inflation going to kneecap lender appetite in the months ahead?
- Which sub-sectors of the mortgage market are strong, and which are weak?
- Howe easy is it for small businesses to secure loans and finance in the current climate?
- Are businesses actively looking for growth capital or are they more interested in self-preservation?
As ever, soundbites please, not essays. If you manage to get the words ‘Theatre of Cruelty’ (Artaud - check it out) into your response there's a better chance I'll pin it to the top. Premium responses will be edited as normal.
