Uk Watch


Weighed down by Brexit-related uncertainty and the sterling-induced real income squeeze, UK GBP growth was its weakest in five years in 2017.

Using Fathom’s proprietary Economic Sentiment Indicator, and other data contained in this Hot Topics folder, we highlighted back in March that this softening was not over yet.

At 0,1%, Q1’s preliminary GDP print was weaker than many anticipated, but consistent with our long-held view that the UK faces an evens chance of recession this year.

This ‘Hot Topics’ folder provides a catalogue of charts help assess the temperature of the UK economy  going forward.
