Would you be prepared to pay for the privilege of keeping your money in a bank? National concern arose recently following an announcement by the Bank of England of a potential move to negative interest rates to cope with the ramifications of COVID-19. Even though we narrowly missed that fate, it begs the question: could negative interest rates be on the horizon further down the line, and what would that mean for you? Vicky Sayers is joined by Sarah Waring, Client Director at wealth management company, Quilter.
In this episode, Vicky Sayers is joined again by Esther Mukoro, founder of the career and personal finance blog for women: Money Nuggets. They talk about why, when it comes to taking action to ensure their financial security, women tend to fall behind compared to men – and Esther offers her advice on how to change that.
Over two months into lockdown here in the UK, you may well be wondering when life is going to get “back to normal” once this is all over – but many are already convinced that things will never be the same.
Vicky Sayers is joined by Ian Jenkins, CEO of Intrinsic Insight and author of a report projecting how behaviours could change following the COVID-19 outbreak, to talk about what the “new normal” might look like.
