Good Money Week - time to get to grips with ethical investment
It's hard to disagree with ethical investment in principle. Where things get tricky is trying to figure out its practical viability as well as whether an ethical approach can deliver decent returns. Thank goodness, then, that this week is Good Money Week. This annual campaign aims to raise awareness of sustainable and ethical investment. Share Radio's Ed Bowsher was joined in the studio by John Ditchfield, a Financial Adviser at Castlefield Investments, Simon Howard, Chief Executive of the UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association, and Whitni Thomas, Senior Investor Relations Manager of Triodos. They gave Ed the lowdown on what Good Money Week is all about.

The list - compiled from recruitment activity that's taken place on LinkedIn this year - ranks both technical and soft skills in order of how sought-after they are by employers.

Morning Money: How certain is a Clinton presidency?
The US Presidential election is just two weeks away and the most recent polls suggest a Hillary Clinton presidency may remain the most likely outcome. Many believe that the FBI reopening the investigation into Clinton's prior use of a private email server has irrevocably damaged her credibility to the point where a Clinton presidency would be seen as illegitimate. But it has also emerged that, in revealing the new investigation, the FBI Director James Comey may have broken the law - a US act which forbids officials from influencing an election. Share Radio's Robert Van Egghen reports.
