      Market Comment March 2020

      Court Guinness resurrects an old column he used to write in which he takes an opinionated and sometimes irreverent view of what he sees in the market place.

      In this issue he looks back at the start of 2020 and looks forward too.

      We are now out of the EU. The big issues and potential disruption is to follow. I still think this is the most helm-less project I have ever seen and I have seen so many badly run projects in my time.

      The last edition of Market Comment was written 2 days before a general election, well this edition did not want to be outdone so comes to you written from a cubicle in  the Accident and Emergency department at Warwick Hospital in the UK! I wonder what will be managed for next edition, the back of a nuclear tank or hopefully somewhere more relaxing like the beach or more likely my desk, we can hope!

      We have seen some softening of property and business values this year and I think this may continue. Market Comment is always one of the last things to be written in this magazine. I always try and make sure it is as up to date as possible and that I can try and predict things going forward.

      Continued on next page

      The smaller end of the deals market is strengthening and I am seeing a growing number of possible sales for the following 12 months in the sub £100k bracket.

      The other thing that has amazed me is the number of the more unusual and exotic deals that are doing the rounds. I was a bit too late or a £14 million pharma company but both an oil rig and a car ferry have crossed my desk and there was a possibility of a requirement or professional footballers to be advertised on these pages!

      It has come to the point in retail where I am now so appalled at the state of the sector and its knock on effects that it has almost become comedic. Physical retail needs change and I do not see many people interested in effecting this change and keeping the high street as a vibrant, busy place.

      Now on to the death of the independent contractor from the 1st of April owing to the stringent reintroduction of IR35. Clients are dumping contractors unless they go on payroll or to umbrella companies and contractors are hanging up their boots and saying “I quit!” The Trade House is receiving about 100 enquiries a month from independent contractors leaving the sector. Government’s interference in enterprise is to blame. They are interfering in much the same way with private residential landlords but that is a another story for another day. The removal of Sajid Javid as chancellor means things will probably get even worse for every business in the country.

      Let us now move on to the concept of the side hustle. This is now a serious thing, so much so that I have decided that side hustlers should have their own dedicated section in this magazine.  This will grow in future issues. On a serious the concept of the side hustle is one to be commended and one that is showcasing the creativity and ability of side hustle owners and operators and this is to be commended. I often bang the drum on small business marketing and how poor some of it is but I do have to credit some of the side hustles I have seen for the effort they have put I to marketing. I do honestly believe that this sector will start to change the rest of the small business sector in terms of marketing.

      Lastly on a housekeeping note I shall be running some “meet the readers events” in 2020 and I would be delighted to see as many of you as possible at these events.

      You will also note that I brought forward the publishing o this issue from March to February 2020. We will publish every other month now until the end of the year. I am recruiting for staff to help me return to a monthly schedule.

      Please note that I am delighted to  hear readers views about this column or any other aspect of this magazine.

      I look forward to speaking with you all again on a regular basis between now and the end of the year.

      Happy dealmaking !

      Regards

      Court

      The Trade House Magazine – Another Record Broken

      I am both proud and delighted to announce that The Trade House Magazine has reached a significant milestone in its journey and development.

      During the morning of 11th January 2018, The Trade House Magazine passed 10,000 unique readers for the 2018 Year End Special edition.

      Current unique readership for the 2018 year end special edition stands at 10,087.

      This means that readership has grown most months by 19% (the exception is August 2018, where readership slipped by 15%) in a straight line, a figure I am very proud of.

      This is a significant step in securing our place as “Hopefully Europe’s Brightest Business Magazine!

      I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers for our continued success.

      You can read a copy of the magazine below.
