It’s the two B’s this week on the podcast – bitcoin and Brexit – as we explain why the cryptocurrency is winning new fans and how the trade deal has given a boost to many UK stocks.
AJ Bell investment director Russ Mould explains the investment case for bitcoin, why the price has been going crazy, how to invest and what could go wrong.
The podcast also welcomes Alexandra Jackson, a manager at Rathbone UK Opportunities fund to talk about the impact of the Brexit deal on the markets, whether investors are too late to benefit from the green revolution, and why AIM stocks have been doing so well.
This episode also considers how a lot of people have more cash in their pocket as their social life has been ruined by lockdown, and how best to deploy that money.
If that’s not enough, the podcast considers why ASOS’s shares are sitting pretty and how Dr Martens and Moonpig could be worth billions of pounds if their plans go ahead to join the UK stock market.
Presented by Shares’ Editor Dan Coatsworth and AJ Bell’s Financial Analyst Laith Khalaf
