(PRWEB UK) 25 February 2013
Britain’s credit rating was downgraded from AAA down to AA1 over the weekend, delivering a blow for the British economy. The ratings agency cited slow growth and rising debt burden for the cut as well as the Coalition’s ‘significant policy commitment to austerity’ as a drag on the economy.
Pound Sterling reached a two year low against the dollar at $1.5163 on Friday, and is now collapsed 7% against both the dollar and the euro.
The latest developments follow news last week that three out of nine members had voted for quantitative easing, in a recent monetary policy meeting.
A spokesperson from Physical Gold said:
“This is more bad news for sterling and an unsteady development for the UK economy. With the pound depreciating, it is well worth savers exploring gold investment to protect against the threat of inflation and protect the value of their money in the long run.”
