The FTSE 100 is down just over 100 points on the week. Yesterday we had a rise in interest rates and today we had RBS announcing its intention to pay its first dividend in over 10 years. In spite of the interest rate rise savers will still continue to look to equity based investments to get a decent return on their capital.
