Nizam Hamid of WisdomTree Europe on how to invest safely while the EU referendum looms
Investment Perspectives: As you've been hearing in the news, the International Monetary Fund has warned that Europe faces severe economic and political damage if Britain votes to leave the EU in June's upcoming referendum. In its latest global update the IMF claimed a BREXIT would disrupt established trading relationships and cause "major challenges" for both the UK and the rest of Europe. Campaigners who want Britain to leave Europe say that IMF forecasts about Britain and other countries had been "consistently wrong" and that the biggest risks were "remaining in an unreformed EU". Arguments over whether Britain should stay in our out of Europe are of limited help to investors looking to position their financial portfolios in the run up to the vote. So where are the safe havens to put the money? Is it worth making any plans or should investors just sit tight and see how the drama plays out? Nizam Hamid, ETF Strategist at WisdomTree Europe and he joins Investment Perspectives presenter Juliette Foster, in the studio.

The Weeks Update: Dr Carlos Oya of the UOL & Professor John Weeks, talk Spain and the fallout after it's general election
Its been almost four months since Spain's general election resulted in the radical left wing "Podemos" party holding the balance of power in the country's traditional two party system. Europe's governing elites could only look on as Spaniards - tired of corruption scandals, relentless austerity and high unemployment - defied convention to embrace a party that had only been around for less than two years. However election euphoria soon gave way to political stalemate and this week Podemos members are expected to vote on whether the party should support or oppose a deal to form a coalition government. Failure to cut an agreement could see Spain heading back to the polls in June. Joining Juliette Foster of Investment Perspectives in the studio is Doctor Carlos Oya of the University of London, and Professor John Weeks Share Radio's regular economics commentator.
