As we head into 2021; we do so as a very different economy. People are working from home, demand has changed, performance has changed, online activity has exploded, and whilst there are pockets of resilience, there are growing risks. Covid-19, climate risk and digitalisation are influencing how we spend, save and borrow and the peak of the economic crisis is yet to come.
