Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. With world stock markets continuing to surge despite global uncertainty this week we’re asking if the FTSE could really break the 10,000 barrier by the end of the year. Examining the views of some of the world’s biggest investors from Warren Buffett to Neil Woodford Georgie Frost is joined by Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce. Also on this weeks show we look at a few backfires for the Government lately as many banks prove reluctant to roll out its Lifetime Isa whilst it continues to steam ahead with record hikes in probate fees despite only 2% support. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.
Georgie Frost is joined in the studio by financial journalist Vix Leytonr. On the agenda today, they discuss the big story from America. Donald Trump has beaten Hilary Clinton to become the 45 President. But how that impacted the markets? Georgie and Vix mull over the affects on the global economy and markets. Elsewhere, today is equal pay day, which marks the time women are effectively working for free because of earning less on average than men. And banks are going to offer more help to elderly and vulnerable customers. All these stories and more on The News Review.
