Jo and Nick are once again joined by Company Watch Data Scientist, Adam Stones. Adam explains Company Watch’s latest release – information on claims made by employers under the furlough scheme, which is now available to users in the Angelia platform. He talks about how the data was gathered and how it can be of use when conducting financial risk analysis on companies. Also discussed in the episode is some job vacancy data – that shows large increases in the number of job vacancies compared to February 2020 (pre-pandemic). Government borrowing figures are astronomically high and the Office for National Statistics (ONS) now estimates that the government borrowed a total of £300.3bn in the financial year to March. Finally, the trio look at the ONS business confidence index and European economic data.
