Should you fix your mortgage? | Moneywise Whether you are looking to buy a property or need to remortgage, the question on everybody’s lips is whether tracker mortgages are still worthwhile or if now might be the time to fix. The Bank of England’s dramatic base rate cuts between October last year and March prompted a surge in the popularity of tracker-rate mortgages, as borrowers chased the opportunity to pay as little as 0.1% on their loans.

Angered by the death of a state security officer and the wounding of two comrades near the flashpoint eastern city of Slaviansk, acting president Oleksander Turchinov gave rebels occupying state buildings until 0600 GMT to lay down their weapons. "The National Security and Defence Council has decided to launch a full-scale anti-terrorist operation involving the armed forces of Ukraine," Turchinov said in an address to the nation.
Recently I visited the breathtaking city of Hong Kong to speak at the seventh-annual Mines and Money conference, Asia-Pacific’s premier event for mining investment deal-making and capital-raising. During my time in Asia I had the additional privilege of addressing the audience of the Asia Mining Club, alongside my good friend Robert Friedland, Executive Chairman and Founder of Ivanhoe Mines. Asia Still Wants Physical Gold The mission of the Asia Mining Club is to promote education among its members, and one way to achieve this is by hearing from experts in the financial markets, notably those focused on resources and commodities.
