This is Money: Congratulations all round!
Pride is at maximum capacity this week, as the team from This is Money take Financial Website of the Year at the Headline Money Awards, and our very own Georgie Frost picked up Financial Broadcaster of the Year. After a couple of minutes of self-congratulating, It’s time to get back to the real money talk that got us the awards in the first place. Mark Carney has warned that Brexit could have devastating effects on the UK economy, though it’s bad news for under-30s no matter what, as they’ll be the first generation to be worse off than their parents. We’ll also be looking at Challenger Banks, are they really different from the big guys? And finally, Simon indulges his love of American muscle. This Is Money is presented in partnership with NS&I.
