Why is it that women make up 47 per cent of the workforce, yet account for less than one third of entrepreneurs in the UK? These ONS statistics are hardly surprising considering the obstacles facing women in work today, but addressing these issues is in the government’s best interests. Statistics suggest that investing in women would bring vital success to our country- RBS estimates that boosting female entrepreneurship would contribute £60bn to the UK economy.
Peace of mind is of paramount importance when you’re dealing with structures that are going to accommodate young children at play. If your hospitality business is going to be adding a playground, for example, you’ll clearly want to be able to proceed without having to worry about the state of that equipment, and you’ll often find that providers offer their own regular care inspections.
In Forex, your account balance can be deceiving. If you have only 100 dollars in your account, you can still trade the market for 1000 dollars. This is the advantage of Forex leverage. You can trade with a much larger amount of money than you have in your account. Account balance in Forex does not mean anything when you are in the market. If you see a good market movement and you want to take place in the market trade, you can take place for your 10 dollars also. However, if you look at the professional traders at Saxo then you will be surprised to see that all of them use the leverage in a very efficient way to trade the market.
A lot of people are seeing the current, news-filled times as a good time to start using foreign exchange trading (or forex as it is usually known) as a way to try and gain a profit out of the heavily fluctuating currency prices. Brexit, the upcoming general election, the possibility of another Scottish independence vote, and events related to Trump in the US are all things that have a massive impact on the relationships between currencies, and when you can predict movements well and analyse what is happening in the forex market, there is a very real opportunity to make money by trading currencies online on platforms like Oanda.
When the United Kingdom resolved to join the European Union in 1973, the drivers of this resolution perhaps could have never imagined that a mere four odd decades later there’d come a time when Britain resolved to go the other way and withdraw from the Union. Many industries both in what will be the remaining countries making up the EU and those which now effectively have to stand on their own two feet within the United Kingdom will definitely have to go through a period of some serious restructuring and there are opportunities abound on either side.
Some facts and figures explored by providers of renewable energy insurance Lycetts with regards to the EU’s renewable energy adoption targets makes for some rather interesting reading. Amongst other things, they shine a light on the fact that these targets are each made up so many different moving parts.
