    The Five-Minute Investor from Money Clinic: What is a yield?

    The Five-Minute Investor from Money Clinic: What is a yield?

    Like an interest rate on a savings account, investment yields show us how much income different investments are able to generate. But how are yields calculated, and how can they measure the returns on different types of investments including shares, bonds and property? 
    In our new miniseries, The Five-Minute Investor, consumer editor Claer Barrett asks FT markets columnist and Unhedged co-host Katie Martin to give practical examples of how yields can be used as a benchmark for different assets, and how to interpret the story behind the numbers.

    The Five-Minute Investor from Money Clinic: What’s a bull market?

    Global stock markets are charging along breaking record after record — but what’s driving this ‘bull market’ and how much longer can it last? Plus, what could it mean for investors if a ‘bear market’ awakens from hibernation? In our new miniseries, The Five-Minute Investor, consumer editor Claer Barrett challenges Rob Armstrong, co-host of FT’s Unhedged podcast and author of the Unhedged newsletter, to explain the factors that drive bull and bear markets, and if individual investors should reconsider their strategy.

Dad died

I have learnt from the many deaths of my life my advice with your solicitor
Make sure your will is in clear steps
1 the will for your assets
2 what do when your ill namely life and death
Making sure your health wishes are clearly understood is important as is make sure your G P knows your wishes especially regarding resuscitated DNR option and organ donation
3 that you have executor
4 power attorney
Finally leave passwords with your solicitor in sealed envelope and then have letters ready and signed for banks etc
That what I have done for when that day comes

brilliant and practical

What a brilliant podcast. I love and appreciate the no-nonsense, clear and practical advice aimed at UK residents. I also listen to a lot of German and US-American finance podcasts so it is especially important to get the local perspective. Moira's voice is friendly and trustworthy, and I like the inclusivity. Thank you!
