AIM inheritance tax benefit fears, investors revert to lockdown market playbook, potential good news on insurance prices, NS&I’s big rate cut and exploring negative interest rates
This week’s podcast explores the tax benefits of putting money into certain AIM stocks and how any meddling by the Government on the rules could have a catastrophic impact on the junior stock market. Joining Dan and Tom to talk about this subject is Philip Harrison, a tax consultant from The Wilkes Partnership.
Fears over another nationwide lockdown have driven investors to flock to the same stocks that did well earlier this year. The podcast reveals the UK stocks which investors have been chasing over the past week.
There have been some brutal cuts to savings rates for NS&I products, so the podcast asks whether savers will stay put or look elsewhere. It also explores the concept of negative interest rates and whether it could happen in the UK.
Finally, Dan has some potential good news for people with home or car insurance, while Tom reveals new data on consumer finance habits six months after lockdown first began in the UK.
