In need of a little extra cash for your Christmas present fund this year? Sarah Pennells is joined by Jasmine Birtles, Founder of money saving website Money Magpie, Naomi Willis from the money blog Skint Dad, and Abigail Dickinson, Communications Executive at cashback site Quidco, to look at ways to make and save those essential pennies for the Christmas shop.
Sarah investigates why the financial sector has few women in top positions and looks into the companies that have signed up for the women in Financial Services Charter. To go through this issue, Sarah is joined by Jane Platt from NS&I, Melanie Seymour from Women in Banking and Finance and employment lawyer, Gillian Howard.
In 1966, Barclays sent out over a million credit cards to customers. And so began a revolution in the way we shop and pay for goods. None of the customers had asked for these cards - and it was an entirely new product in the UK. Many of those who received these credit cards were women, and it meant that women could get credit without having to get a man to sign for it or act as a guarantor. Sarah Pennells and her guests discuss how credit cards have changed over the past 50 years and look at current rates and deals available.
