January 25th, 2016

Episode 444 of 643 episodes

Investors are braced for another potential roller coaster week on financial markets. Is the volatility a sign of economic hard times to come? We hear from Pippa Malmgrem, founder of London-based financial consultants DRPM Group, and Didier Saint-Georges of asset managers Carmignac in Paris. Also, Abdullatif al-Othman, governor of the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority, tells us how the country is looking to dilute its reliance on oil. And Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times fantasizes about the perfect office. (Picture credit: Yoshikazu Tsuno/AFP/Getty Images)
