Welcome to Summer and to the new issue of Credo.

In the aftermath of the Scottish Parliament elections, in the midst of the EU Referendum campaign, and looking forward to a continuing recovery in the Brent crude oil price, we're focussed firmly on the market in Scotland.

Investors continue to have appetite for Scottish assets, quality corporates are taking advantage of market conditions, personal insolvencies are at a low level, and the new Scottish Parliament has a positive attitude to business.

This Summer edition of our Banking & Financial Services bulletin Credocovers these topics and more, enjoy your read, brought together by our Associates Amy McVey (Edinburgh) and Eilidh Rarity (Aberdeen). Please contact your usual Brodies contact or Michael Stoneham for any further information.
