November RVR Forum in review

Over one hundred members joined the BVRLA’s final Residual Value and Remarketing (RVR) Forum of 2021 last week, the most well attended of the year.

Speaker highlights included: 

  • cap hpi told how used values for three-year-old cars are on average up over 25% in the last 12 months, with MPVs and SUVs as the best performing sectors
  • New car supply remains heavily affected by component supply issues, with expectations this will last well into next year
  • Lloyds Banking Group shared that consumer confidence is starting to slip, yet business confidence is up strongly and investment intentions are still buoyant
  • A rise in UK interest rates now looks inevitable, although markets may be overestimating the extent of the increase.

Presentations from the forum are available on the RVR Forums page, where members can also find details of subscribing to the 2022 programme. The next forum will be held on 10 February 2022, with subsequent forums in June and November, expected to span virtual and physical events.
