The best country for credit?

flags-globeTime once again to check on the World Bank’s ‘ease of business’ index. This is always fascinating and the full results are on small spreadsheets in the new tab above

So what do we find?

First and foremost and probably of most interest to this blog is the fact that the UK remains the very best country to obtain credit. This has in fact been the case for a number of years. Some may be very surprised at that conclusion but as I have found recently with a couple of cross border requirements for finance, certain counties lag well behind.

France being a case in point, as I have found with some cross border brokering I am managing at the present time. They languish at 58 on the list. Even more surprising is the Netherlands and Belgium being still further down.

The anglophone countries do score highly but there are a few significant and interesting results, which i have highlighted

For the overall ease of business we are rated 10 which I am sure is down on previous years. Strangely the UK does not score particularly high on ease of starting a business. I find that very surprising.

An interesting read and comments welcome
