A message from our CEO, Philip Howell, to all taking part in the Rathbones Lacrosse World Cup, which starts this Wednesday.
Playing sport at the highest level requires huge dedication but also sacrifices, with employers often less supportive than might be expected. As sponsors of the FIL Rathbones Women’s Lacrosse World Cup, we look at the challenges facing high-performing sportswomen.
With all the major regions of the global economy growing in synch, investors are shrugging off political uncertainty. Equities have been buoyant, particularly in the US technology sector, where rising valuations are the focus of our lead article “Great tech-spectations”.
Britain’s innovative culture has often been characterised by undue modesty. Not least in the face of Brexit, is it now time for the UK to abandon its innate reserve and self-effacing rhetoric? In making the case for a more confident and vocal approach, we look at four areas in which British ingenuity and enterprise are not only leading but changing the world.
Indicators point to a peak in the pace of global expansion, but we still prefer equities to bonds.
Rathbones has long supported programmes encouraging girls and young women to play sport, in particular lacrosse. But it’s not just about the physical benefits; sport offers so much more to the next generation.
Most of us intuitively agree that playing sports is good for children. But more and more evidence is emerging as to how good it really is for their development, and in how many different ways.
As part of National School Sport Week we celebrate the hard-working teachers who go above and beyond the call of duty for their students.
Not every school gets the same opportunities, and not all pupils get the chance to try something different. Yet science teacher Irene Moynihan wanted to change that when she introduced the sport of lacrosse to Writhlington Academy near Bath.
As well as the portfolio diversification benefits that commodities can add to holdings of traditional stocks and bonds, they can also have speculative appeal.
