Hi Guys
If I could guarantee you interest rates below 2% for the next 40 years, is there any financial transaction that you could make, that would benefit you financially?

Lower interest rates = Cheaper credit = Rising asset prices (ie houses, stock market etc.)

Just to put this question in context, if i knew that interest rates where to jump in the next year to 10% for the next 40 years, I would take out a large loan at fixed low interest rate now, ready for the interest rise :)
But what would be a good investment if you knew that interest rates would move between 0 and 2% for 40 years?

erm..... property and/or stock market.

If you knew that permanently low interest rates were going to be particular to the UK then you would buy foreign assets as you would also gain from a depreciating sterling.
