Bad News for Buy-to-Let Investors and Emerging Market Funds

NEWS YOU CAN USE: This month; property investors have been dealt a blow by Chancellor George Osborne and emerging market investors have seen several key manager changes

It has been another volatile year in Asian stock markets, topped off with the news this month that Japan has, once again, slid back into recession.

Against the backdrop of economic turbulence, some fund management groups have been reviewing and repositioning funds in this region and this has led to a number of fund manager moves.

Elsewhere it remains to be seen whether George Osborne’s latest attempts to put the brakes on the runaway buy-to-let market will lead to an unexpected boon for the investment industry. The increase in stamp duty on second homes, announced in last week’s Autumn Statement, alongside the increased tax on rental yields, may make this a far less attractive option for potential investors who may now be looking for new homes for their money.
