The Budget may seem like a long time ago already, given the pace at which the UK's negotiations with the EU about the terms of its withdrawal are moving.

But advisers may still be digesting what the impact of the chancellor's Budget announcements will mean for their clients.

Chancellor Philip Hammond stood to deliver his Budget having already received some positive economic updates from the Office for Budget Responsibility.

So what did Mr Hammond deliver in terms of savings, tax, housing and pensions?

Were there any giveaways, as Mr Hammond promised a Budget for "hard working families"?

Talking Point, in association with Schroders, considers what Budget announcements will have the most impact on advisers' clients.
