Regional Pulse

January 2020

The Bank of Ireland Regional Pulses bring together the views of households and firms around the country. The results for January 2020 (3 month moving average basis) show that sentiment was up on the month in all four regions.

While Brexit is slated for January 31st, a no deal departure has been avoided and a ‘status quo’ transition period will apply until the end of 2020. Households and firms look to have taken some comfort from this, with the former more upbeat about the economy and their own finances this month and the latter upgrading their near-term expectations for business activity and hiring.
