This is Money: Don't be fooled by the FTSE.
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. We’re still on course for Brexit, albeit pending Parliament’s approval. Already a number of banks seem intent on following through on their threats to relocate jobs, but what about the local branches already shutting down across the UK? Meanwhile the FTSE continues to soar on the back of the slumping pound but questions remain as to the underlying health of the UK economy. Inflation also looks set to rise as does national debt although the latest GDP figures do offer some good news at least. To discuss how people can save and invest for the turbulent times ahead Georgie Frost is joined in the studio by Editor Simon Lambert and Deputy Editor Adrian Lowrey. Plus just when BT thought their problems couldn’t get any worse we’ll be announcing the results of the annual Money Mail Wooden Spoon Awards. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.

“I don’t think May’s leaving anything to chance, and she’ll have worked out Trump’s approach” – Allyson Stewart-Allen
Theresa May is currently in the unenviable position of simultaneously having to negotiate trade deals with Europe to the East, and the US to the West. And as with all British business leaders trying to build their US sales and presence, the Prime Minister must ensure she is in sync with the American businessman leading the country. Allyson Stewart-Allen is the Director at International Marketing Partners, and she joined Nigel Cassidy on Share Radio Breakfast to offer her views on the approach May should take.
