How consumers can rebuild in the aftermath of high inflation
13o June 2024
With the latest data from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) revealing that inflation had dropped year-on-year from 3.2% in March to 2.3% in April, people could be forgiven for thinking their financial pressures would be relieved. However, prices—which rocketed between 2022 and the end of 2023—are still climbing, just at a slower rate. The effects of the cost-of-living crisis and high inflation environment of recent years will continue despite inflation edging closer to the Government’s 2% target. Therefore, staying vigilant for opportunities to improve your financial situation and take advantage of the gradually easing economic conditions is important.

What does inflation mean for consumers?
22o January 2024

However, the news that prices have risen, no matter how slight, coupled with the fact that real wages compared to prices aren’t predicted to return to 2021 levels until 2027, means that it's as important as ever for you to understand what inflation means for your finances.
