In the latest Money Makers podcast, our series of in-depth conversations with leading professional investors, Jonathan Davis talks to experienced stockpicker Paul Mumford, who has been running what is now the £150m Cavendish Opportunities Fund, a small and midcap specialist, since 1988. Paul is also the author of a recently published book, The Stock Picker, which look backs entertainingly over the highs and lows of his 50-year career in the financial markets and explains why he is not too worried (yet) about Brexit, higher interest rates or Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister. He also discusses some of his favourite investment themes at present.
The Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority has introduced important changes to borrowing for landlords with four or more properties. Richard Blanco discusses the implications with Head of Policy at The National Landlords Association, Chris Norris and James Andrews, Editor of Mirror Money Online. As London Borough of Newham awaits a decision from the Secretary of State on the renewal of its borough wide selective licensing scheme, we debate the scheme’s merits and the potential impact of the decision. We look more broadly at how local authorities are trying to procure properties from the private rented sector and ask whether Gas Safety Week is making enough headway in promoting safety. Inside Property is produced in collaboration with the National Landlords Association.
Correction: local authorities must seek Secretary of State permission for selective licensing schemes of more than 20% of the borough’s privately rented properties not 25%.

Labour didn’t win the last General Election but leader Jeremy Corbyn believes it could do next time. In case that comes around anytime soon, the party this week laid out some plans at its conference. Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell also revealed that the leadership would be doing war game planning should a Labour victory cause a run on the pound or a stock market slump. Depending on your point of view, this may sound amusing, scary or exciting. But what does it actually mean and should we be worried? Corbyn's plans are pretty radical and would herald a sharp turn in the country's economic direction but should we be worried about the economy as it is now? Perhaps the rumoured Bank of England rate hike is a sign that things are absolutely fine. On this week’s This is Money podcast, Simon Lambert, Georgie Frost and Lee Boyce take a look at whether the UK’s pint glass is half empty or half full – and whether that means you will get richer or poorer.
