On Monday's programme Vincent Duggleby put your questions about saving and investing to a panel of experts.

Many people are worse off than a year ago due to the global credit crunch, but if you do have any spare money, what is the best way to see a return?

Those who own shares in banks and mortgage lenders may have seen their shares' value fall.

But with banks eager to bring in more money from depositors, savings rates have been steadily rising.

In these financially uncertain times, where is the safest place for your money?

Perhaps you are looking to invest a lump sum, or put aside regular savings, but are not sure where to start.

Are you considering putting money into the stock market but wondering whether or not it is wise?

Or do you have a question about paying for advice or the fees you are being charged to manage your funds?

Whatever you wanted to know, a panel of experts was here to give you advice about saving and investing.

Vincent Duggleby was joined by:

• Julie Hedge, principal and independent financial advisor, Christie Scotts
• Mark Dampier, head of research, Hargreaves Lansdown
• Morven Whyte, portfolio manager at Redmayne Bentley Stockbrokers

Presenter: Vincent Duggleby
Producer: Samantha Washington
