London Stock Exchange merger with Deutsche Boerse in danger over EU demand
The €29bn euro merger of the London Stock Exchange and Deutsche Boerse could collapse after the LSE said the deal was unlikely to be approved by the European Commission. The commission had ordered the LSE to sell its 60% stake in MTS, a fixed-income trading platform, which the stock exchange described as "disproportionate". A spokesperson for Theresa May said the merger was a "commercial matter." Share Radio's Nigel Cassidy was joined by Mike van Dulken, Head of Research of Accendo Markets.

Women and Money: ISAs galore
Do you have a cash ISA? Government figures show that cash ISAs are one financial product that's more popular among women than men. These savings accounts pay interest without tax taken off - and, although a bit of the gloss has been taken off them in the last year or so because of tax changes to savings and low interest rates, many women still have them. And from April there will be a new ISA - a LISA or lifetime ISA. Sarah Pennells was joined by Helen Saxon, chief product analyst at Money Saving Expert, Harry Rose, editor of Which? Money and by Claire Walsh, who's head of advice at Unbiased.
