Morning Money: IPOs - a good climate for some, but not for others?
2016 has been a strange year for IPOs. Political and economic uncertainty worldwide has caused some companies including Misys to cancel their initial public offerings, while others, like GoCompare and FreeAgent, are bucking the trend and listing on the stock exchange. So why is the climate good for some and not so for others? Matt Cox has been speaking with Jasper Lawler, Market Analyst at CMC Markets, to find out.

Morning Money: The Square Mile is the Ransomware capital of the world
It seems the Square Mile is being hit by more so-called ransomware attacks than anywhere else in the UK. Ransomware is the digital equivalent of highway robbery. Precious company data is stolen or encrypted, and will not be returned in a readable form unless a ransom is paid. Data from specialists, Malwarebytes, found the City suffered 670% more such attacks than the next nearest area - Manchester. Chris Boyd, Malwarebytes’ intelligence analyst, told Share Radio’s Nigel Cassidy that ransomware attacks are nothing less than a modern day protection racket.

This is Money: Achtung!
Welcome to another episode of This is Money, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. This week, Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce team up with Georgie Frost to deliver you the best of financial journalism and analysis this week. And who knows where Brexit will take us, but the simple fact is for now Europe still has a profound effect. Most notably Germany this week, as serious instability at Deutsche Bank, the country’s largest bank, and massive job cuts at Commerzbank, it’s second biggest, are sending waves through the banking sector this side of the channel. It’s not all bad news for the Germans though, as their budget supermarket Aldi is eating up more of the market share in Britain, though it seems at the expense of their own profits as well. Sustainable strategy? We’ll have to wait and see. Also on the show, the World Economic Forum raises its estimation of the British economy, the Help to Buy scheme has run its course, BHS gets a digital resurrection, and the gang give their favourite of their 50 top savings tips. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost, in partnership with NS&I.

This is Money: Soy Lattes or Despair? Take your pick.
Welcome to This is Money, presented in partnership with NS&I. On this episode we're seeing the quicksand deepening for savers, as another base rate cut looms, and savings rates plummet through the floor. Bad news especially those under 30, the so-called Millenials or YOLO Generation. But is it their fault they know so little about money, and have even less hope for the future? We'll also be looking at some spare change that could bring you a mint, critical illness insruance that doesn't necessarily cover you for critical illnesses, and the greatest weapon in the fight against scammers: Information.

This is Money: The Best Of Edition
On the show this week, we're taking a look back at the very best of our weekly financial analysis and commentary, in partnership with NS&I, over the past few months. And what a few months it has been! From Brexit to the Bank of England rate cuts, and don’t forget the BHS and Sports Direct scandals. We’re going to take you back, and get some perspective on it all. Maybe it will start to make sense... We'll also be looking at the major takeover of Britain’s own ARM holdings, a much-loved current account getting its rates slashed, and the best and worst of Great British Auto Manufacturing.

This is Money: The Only Way Is Essex
Once again, it's time for This is Money, in partnership with NS&I. This week, Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce from the Financial Website of The Year team up with Financial Broadcaster of the Year Georgie Frost, to boldly proclaim the dust settled on post-Brexit Britain. Well, sort of. With pre-Brexit employment figures, and post-Brexit CPI and RPI all out, a lot of people might be unhappy with the results. Not least as Current Accounts and Annuities are slashed, and pensions deficits and house prices continue to soar. Are we in a bit of a slump, or is this just the landscape now? We'll take you through it all, and also take a look at thousands of electricity customers being over-billed due to an Imperial legacy, and Lee Boyce waxes lyrical on the joys of living at the seaside. This is Money is presented in partnership with NS&I.
