Nizam Hamid of WisdomTree Europe on how to invest safely while the EU referendum looms
Investment Perspectives: As you've been hearing in the news, the International Monetary Fund has warned that Europe faces severe economic and political damage if Britain votes to leave the EU in June's upcoming referendum. In its latest global update the IMF claimed a BREXIT would disrupt established trading relationships and cause "major challenges" for both the UK and the rest of Europe. Campaigners who want Britain to leave Europe say that IMF forecasts about Britain and other countries had been "consistently wrong" and that the biggest risks were "remaining in an unreformed EU". Arguments over whether Britain should stay in our out of Europe are of limited help to investors looking to position their financial portfolios in the run up to the vote. So where are the safe havens to put the money? Is it worth making any plans or should investors just sit tight and see how the drama plays out? Nizam Hamid, ETF Strategist at WisdomTree Europe and he joins Investment Perspectives presenter Juliette Foster, in the studio.

The Responsible Investment Show: A look at 'The Wave' with Nick Hounsfield, Chris Hines & Christopher & Jenna Gordon
Can money be made from businesses that follow a social and environmental agenda? You might think the answer to that is "No" yet you couldn't be more wrong? Go through the pages of crowd funding sites and you'll find hundreds of businesses whose financial objectives are underpinned by a strong commitment to social and environment issues. One example is a company called "The Wave". Founder Nick Hounsfield has turned a passion for surfing into a major project that brings together people of all ages and social groups, with the help of a lake and some cutting edge technology. Chris Hines is the project's "Head of Sustainability" while Christopher and Jenna Gordon are investors and members of "The Wave" board. All four of them join Juliette Foster in the studio.

Crowdfunders: A new innovative finance ISA, Abundance and Thincats platforms & a profile on LendInvest
This is Crowdfunders on Share Radio, the show that covers the fast-growing world of alternative finance, hosted by Share Radio’s Senior Analyst, Ed Bowsher. In today's show: A new innovative finance ISA that is launching this week, and Ed talks to the bosses of the Abundance and Thincats platforms. We also have a 'platform profile' on Lendinvest. Starting with the innovative finance isa - the idea is that you can lend money on the well-known peer to peer platforms - people like Zopa and Ratesetter - and you won't have to pay any income tax on the interest you earn. Trouble is, the isa is launching this week, but loans on the big platforms aren't eligible for an isa. So to find out more, Ed spoke yesterday to a real alternative finance expert, Bruce Davis, who's been on Share Radio many times. He also runs the Abundance platform. He started by asking Bruce: 'why on earth aren't most platforms eligible for the ISA, what's going on?'
