Why are tech companies so valuable? Matt Cox reports.
Snap Inc - the owner of Snapchat - has caused quite a stir after the company has been valued at up to $25bil in an IPO filing. Snap is aiming to raise around $3bil in an initial public offering, expected in March. It would make it one of the largest US tech IPOs in years, but some disagree with the valuation. Indeed, Snap Inc said it "may never achieve or maintain profitability"; so why are tech companies so valuable, and have such investor appeal? Share Radio's Matt Cox put the question to Adrian Lowcock, Investment Director at Architas.

Tax burden to hit highest level for 30 years
The UK's tax burden is set to rise to its highest level for over thirty years, despite the longest and deepest cut in public service spending. That's according to the think tank, the Institute for Fiscal Studies. It says the austerity regime of tax rises and spending cuts will continue into the 2020s - after the Chancellor scrapped a target of balancing the books by 2019. Share Radio's Olivia Demetriades spoke to Carl Emmerson, Deputy Director of the IFS.
