The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Encouraging funds to invest in UK equities
Neil Shah of Edison Group discusses the Chancellor's Mansion House speech, particularly the attempt to encourage pension funds and insurance companies to invest in the UK. He gives a shocking example of BT's £37bn pension fund, investing just £100m in UK equities. Neil feels that regulation is forcing too much to go into fixed income and that encouraging but not mandating UK equity investment (including unlisted securities) could make a difference over time.

The Business of Film: Elemental, Insidious: The Red Door & Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken - 13 Jul 23
With Empire in administration, closing half their cinemas, James Cameron-Wilson finds it hard to be positive. Pixar's Elemental at #1 is a forced morality tale while Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is creaky and overlong. Insidious: The Red Door at #5 is merely blah while Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken at #8 is devoid of wit or flair. James is only enthusiastic about The Flash at #10.

Thought for the Week: Financial Legacies
The shining towers and ivory walls of the City of London — many of our financial trials and tribulations can be traced back to October 1986, when the clear distinction between self-interest and acting in the interests of customers was abruptly brought to an end in the 'Big Bang'. Among those who saw it all happen was legendary market-maker Brian Winterflood MBE, who died on 29th June. His financial legacy, built over sixty years in the City, is massive.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Is money still a man’s prerogative?
Since the suffragette movement, women have had to work hard to gain autonomy in what was once very much “a man’s world”; and when it comes to finances, women are yet to achieve equality. Vicky Sayers is joined by Tamara Gillan, founder of the WealthiHer Network: created to inspire and empower women to grow and protect their wealth. They discuss the continuing economic inequality of the sexes, and the initiatives put in place by the WealthiHer Network to work towards equality. https://www.wealthihernetwork.com/ originally recorded 20 March 2020

Gadgets & Gizmos: The Internet of Things
We’re becoming increasingly reliant on technology of all kinds, divulging more and more of our most personal details online and on internet-connected devices. But are we investing in suitable safeguarding measures to protect ourselves against hacking? Well, apparently not. Research from cyber-security experts, nCipher Security, has revealed that as more and more things become connected to the internet – from wireless home sensor networks, to smartphones, to wearable tech – we’re leaving ourselves wide open to cyber-attacks. In this 2019 episode of the Share Interview, Vice President of Global Distribution from nCipher Security, Peter Carlisle, joins Vicky Sayers to offer his advice. originally recorded on 15 November 2019
