Tea with Tony | Episode 21 | January 2023

Tea with Tony is back for 2023, and Tony gets started with an economic state of play. Is the inflation and interest rate outlook turning? We’ve started to see a dip in the 5-year fixed rates – will this flow through to shorter terms and what can we expect to happen from here?

Tune in for Tony’s view.
