City Views | Are you more optimistic about the economy than at the start of 2013?

NICHOLAS OWEN
D&D LONDON

I’m more optimistic – we’ve got more events and our forecasts are looking better for the year.

JAMES BOYCE
RBS

I’m more optimistic. From my point of view, there are more jobs and people are more positive. People are spending more.

BANDISH GUDKA
VESTRA WEALTH

I’m neutral to pessimistic. I don’t think that the growth is as good as people say it is. We’ll see what comes about when Sir Mervyn King leaves the Bank. Everything’s picking up, but volatility is hurting growth.
