Money Box Live: Saving and investing

Sterling notes
BBC Radio 4's Money Box Live
Wednesday, 31 August 2011 at 1502 BST on Radio 4 and Online

Money Box Live will return on Wednesday 31 August 2011, when the panel will answer your questions on saving and investing.

Recent stock market turmoil has seen hundreds of billions of pounds wiped off the value of Britain's biggest businesses. Is investing in the stock market too risky at the moment or are their bargains to be had?

With interest rates set to remain at incredibly low levels for the foreseeable future things are looking grim for savers. Where can put your money and get a rate of return that could rival the rate of inflation?

Whether your interest is in cash accounts or shares, income or growth, you can ask the experts for advice.

Which savings accounts are paying the best rate of interest?

Are inflation-linked bonds good value?

What types of equity investments are available?

How do you assess risk and choose a fund?

What's the difference between a unit trust and an investment trust?

Perhaps you want to know about investment jargon

Vincent Duggleby will be joined by:

• Mark Dampier, head of research, Hargreaves Lansdown

• Louise Oliver, partner, Taylor Oliver

• Christine Ross, group head of financial planning, SG Hambros
