As you would expect at this time of year with Isa season in full swing, it was investment and savings stories that dominated the money sections, accounting for over half of all articles (35 per cent investment and 17 per cent savings). Stories ranged from ways to manage inflation to where to invest and save your Isa allowance with the deadline fast approaching.
Elsewhere, with the spectre of inflation rearing its head the money pages dedicated a number of articles on how to combat the hike. Jim Leaviss in the Mail (@MoneyMail_News) looked at where investors can turn to get a real return, which includes index-linked gilts and commodities. Chiara Cavaglieri and Julian Knight (@ukmoneyguru) in the Independent (@TheIndyNews) suggested ways to make the most of your portfolio, rating each asset class out of ten for its inflation beating abilities. Emma Simon (@SimpleSimonEmma) at the Telegraph focused on gold and whether it is really the ultimate inflation hedge.
Moving on to the more classic Isa articles, the Sunday Times (@thesundaytimes) pulled together 10 reasons to take out an Isa which included the incentive of becoming an Isa millionaire and Steve Lodge in FT Money (@ftmoney) warned investors of the Isa accounts that could be losing thousands of pounds on previously popular funds. Advisers have suggested reviewing these funds in the overall portfolio rather than cutting and running.
The rest of the scores this week are as follows:
