  • Foreign investors snap up UK debt at record pace

    The Bank of England has warned that the current account deficit, which measures the gap between money flowing out of the UK and money brought in, was "large" and could "trigger a deterioration in market sentiment towards the United Kingdom" if the economy deteriorated. However, the ECB's €60bn-a-month quantitative easing programme is expected to lead to higher inflows into the UK, as investors look for alternative sources of yield. Oliver Harvey, a macro strategist at Deutsche Bank, said the UK was an "obvious beneficiary" of the ECB's bond-buying programme, which has pushed up bond prices and lowered yields across the eurozone.

  • Finnish military reaches out to reservists, denies Russia link

    The Finnish military began sending letters to some 900,000 reservists on Monday in the largest campaign of its kind, amid increased tensions between the Nordic states and Russia over the Ukraine crisis. The military said the letter campaign, which aims to improve communication with former army conscripts, was prompted mainly by cuts in the defence budget and was not a response to a more assertive Russia, with which Finland shares an 833 mile (1,340 km) land border. Last month, Finland and similarly neutral Sweden joined with NATO members Norway, Denmark and Iceland in an unprecedentedly hawkish joint statement that directly cited the Russian "challenge" as grounds to boost defence cooperation.
