Money on the Move: The Best Finance Podcasts in 2020
Sound financial advice has always been important. Whether looking for the best rates offered by banks for deposit accounts or mortgages, or for long term stocks and shares investments, having informed and up to date advice helps us make the best decisions possible. And with the Covid-19 pandemic causing business disruption and economic uncertainty worldwide, having the most recent insights possible has never been more important.
One way of getting regular and up to date advice on the financial world is via podcasts. You can listen to them direct on your laptop or PC or download them to listen to in the car or on a personal stereo. But with so many out there, how do you choose what ones best suit your needs? We look at some of the best podcasts in different categories for 2020.
The Financial Times is one of the world’s leading financial newspapers. Founded in London in 1888, it has over one million paying subscribers. Its weekly podcasts range from 20-30 minutes in length and features experts from the FT banking team. They cover a variety of subjects, with recent podcasts covering everything from Running a small business during a global pandemic to What bankers are talking about at Davos.
Bloomberg has long been one of the major sources for financial news. Mainly operating as a financial, software, data, and media company, this New York-based company offers a fantastic daily podcast that looks at U.S. and global markets and trends and covers everything from the recent crash of crude oil prices to the effects of C19 on unemployment.
Not all podcasts come from major financial institutions and it can be good to get off the beaten track and listen to some of the ‘smaller’ experts out there. With an interview style format, the hosts meet ordinary people who have gained or are working towards financial independence. This is the perfect choice for those of you who want to escape the normal work cycle.
