Yes, and I will take advantage in a small way, but I expect dividends to be increased at some companies to encourage shareholders to not sell up for cash investments.
That's an Interesting angle, and something to maybe consider. My worry is/would be being too heavily exposed in the s&s markets. We have about 50% of our investments there currently (actually quite a bit more than that if including private pensions) . Sold a b2l house and the cash has been largely doing nowt in a variety of accounts, so might slowly stick chunks into 1 or 2 year fixed rates if the %'s keep going north which they almost surely will. Don't have a mortgage to pay down as already paid ours off 10 years early. Also not bothered about inflation out performing most returns you can get as doing something is definitely better than doing nothing, can also be smarter with discretionary spending, indeed all spending.
