Sara Benwell, Pensions Insight, on the News Review with Ed Bowsher.
Sara Benwell, Digital Editor of Pensions Insight, joins Share Radio's Senior Analyst Ed Bowsher to go through the day's financial news. Top on the agenda, shoppers are seemingly oblivious to this supposed Brexit uncertainty, as retail sales barely dip. Retail giant John Lewis is hardly basking in the glow, though, as pre-tax profits continue to plummet. Also on the show, nearly a third of homeowners have been put off moving because of stamp duty costs, and a record 44 Billion pounds were shelled out by British business this financial year.

This is Money: Exploiting savers and penalising borrowers.
It's This is Money, your essential week's round-up of the biggest money stories in the UK and abroad. This week, guest-host Sue Dougan teamed up with Editor Simon Lambert and Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard Straus from the Financial Website of the Year, This Is Money. On the agenda today; A further rate cut looks unlikely for now, but that's not stopped the banks from taking full advantage of the chance to punish savers and borrowers alike. Meanwhile, a Pensions Roadblock is what we're calling people scared off from trying to get their nest egg in order. Is it just a bit complicated, or totally hopeless? And we'll also be taking a look at a new book on the hidden threat of Big Data: it's Weapons of Maths Destruction. This is Money is presented 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.
