1 per cent will distort UK market says Beachcroft Wansbroughs

Beachcroft Wansbroughs Consulting has criticised Ron Sandler&#39s proposals for extending the 1 per cent world, saying it will cause distortions in the UK market for packaged products.

The consultancy, headed by former FSA personalities Richard Hobbs and Oliver Lodge, also says a 1 per cent revenue stream will cause an outflow of capital from the UK, and will fail to close the savings gap.

It says the 1 per cent price cap is the lowest of any Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development country.
