Welcome to another panel session from the Sustain:Social Conference, featuring an all-star line-up of investment professionals: Stephen Porter of Scottish Widows, Nanne Tolsma of Satelligence, Kenneth Mackenzie of Target Fund Managers, Myron Jobson of Interactive Investors and Stephen Clapham of Behind the Balance Sheet.
Lord John Lee has become a champion for people investing in the stock market over recent years: he's written three books on investing, he's a patron of ShareSoc, the society for individual shareholders in the United Kingdom, and he's now challenging Government, broadcasters and regulators to encourage a much higher profile for investing in shares on TV and radio. Gavin Oldham meets with John to discuss the background to his initiative and his proposals for change; and they go on to consider how customer share ownership can be expanded, how to encourage more active participation in shareholder voting, and how to improve financial education
Why invest? Glen Goodman, with the assistance of Annie Weston, explains why investing makes sense and talks you through the merits of the stock market, in this tenth episode of Share Radio's 'Managing My Money' course. What's the difference between saving and investment? It's all in the risk. They discuss shares, bonds and funds, and which perform best over the long term.
