    What will the UK election mean for your money?

    What will the UK election mean for your money?

    Regardless of which political party wins the UK general election on July 4, voters fear they will have to pay more taxes. Taxes are the crucial battleground in the run-up to polling day, and experts question whether manifesto pledges can be delivered without raising them. What aspects of our personal finances could be affected - and could a change of leadership potentially be beneficial for investors in UK stocks? In this episode, host Claer Barrett discusses what could happen next with Miranda Green, the FT’s deputy opinion editor; Nimesh Shah, chief executive of advisory firm Blick Rothenberg and Moira O’Neill, an FT investing columnist. Clips: LBC, Labour Party

Financial Regrets

Such an inspiring story, Lucy. I also have a fair share of financial hardships and it was a difficult period in my life. I had to make tough decisions, while staying focus on my goals. Kudos to Claer for asking insightful questions.
