How would you describe your relationship with money? Do you regard it as a means to an end, or something that isn't worth thinking about until the postman drops a reminder of an unpaid bill through the mail box? It's that perception of money that will ultimately shape how well - or badly - we manage our finances. Why are some people better at handling money than others? Are they just naturally capable or do they have the right set of values to be financially successful?

Its author is Doctor Sarah Newcombe, a behavioural economist at the investment research group "Morningstar", who joins Juliet in the studio.
