March has been an uncertain month. One of the cornerstones of the financial year, the Budget, had to be revised 48 hours after it was delivered, after planned welfare cuts were abandoned.

But political questions about how the books will be balanced don’t detract from fact that this still looks like an excellent Budget for savers and investors: with future cuts to capital gains tax, a new ‘Lifetime ISA’, and no plans – as yet at least – to abolish higher-rate tax relief on pensions.

There are other uncertainties though, not least around the forthcoming ‘Brexit’ vote.  The Bank of England said that the uncertainty around this debate itself could pose a risk to economic growth regardless of what the outcome of the referendum. However, Peter Hargreaves, founder of stock broker Hargreaves Lansdown, was less pessimistic, saying fears about leaving the EU were “overblown”.
