Morning Money: The measurement of fund performance
A new fund spun out from leading firm Odey Asset Management will not charge investors performance fees. The decision follows the move by renowned fund manager Neil Woodford not to award performance bonuses to staff earlier this year. As sentiment in the industry seems to turn against fees and bonuses, digital technology is enabling investors to demand greater transparency around how the fund is actually performing. Robert Van Egghen reports.

Speaking at an energy conference in Istanbul, Mr Putin said he hoped that the OPEC producers’ group would agree on output curbs for member nations at its next ministerial meeting in November.

This is Money

This is Money: Floored by Politics
A week is a long time in politics - UKIP; Fracking protesters; and the pound all got a pummeling, didn't they? Welcome to the This is Money podcast, produced in partnership with NS&I. This week, Share Radio’s Georgie Frost is joined by Editor Simon Lambert and journalist Ellie Lawrie to take a look at the week’s biggest financial stories. And we start with the speech. Which speech? Don’t be silly. Theresa May capped off the Conservative Party conference with an entreaty for the Tories to be the Peoples Party, but more importantly for our purposes, the PM gave some strong signals of protectionism and increased toughness on Business. Energy, pensions, transport – few sectors escaped her view. And we’re in no doubt about a Hard Brexit now, so how are May and Chancellor Hammond going to navigate this one? To further complicate matters is a near-perfect negative correlation between a plunging Sterling and a soaring FTSE. What are we to make of this? We’ll also be admonishing you to get your affairs in order, that is write a will. Few things ruin a family quicker than money, and family disputes over inheritances are on the rise in this country. We want to make sure your estate is dealt with in the way you intend, without breaking up the home. We’ll also be looking at ways of spending a windfall, the hyper-hyper-inflation of the new £5 note, and … you hear that? The carols are here early, and it’s time for a look-ahead to the toys on every kids’ Christmas list this year. (Sorry, but you really ought to get started early this year, they’re not cheap). This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost, in partnership with NS&I.

Morning Money: TalkTalk slapped with record fine
Telecoms group TalkTalk has been slapped with a record £400,000 fine by the Information Commissioner’s Office because of a cyber attack last year. The ICO found that “security failings” allowed a cyber attacker to access customer data “with ease”.
