We hear from the chief executive of insurance underwriter Lloyds of London on the threat from climate change. And as it becomes easier for more people to rent out their spare bedroom for a few days, we speak to the UK boss of Air BnB, an online platform that is looking to take advantage of the change.

    Are you about to lose your local bank...and would you ever pay for a current account? We discuss the future of banking with Benny Higgins, the boss of Tesco Bank, and the supermarket group's strategy director.

The programme also looks at the UK's growing shoe exports to Japan.

    There are more women than ever before in the boardrooms of our largest companies but do they have the same power as their male counterparts? Investment company boss Helena Morrissey joins us on Wake up to Money. No convincing case for HS2 - that's the view of a group of Lords who say the regions could benefit more if other transport projects were built first. Plus the takeover of O2 by the owners of the Three network moves another step nearer - it'll be the country's largest mobile phone network but is it good news for customers?

    MPs say contractors who lost out in the collapse of the delivery firm City Link were "deliberately deceived" about its financial health. Better Capital which owned the company says the conclusions are ill-founded. We hear from one of the contractors who lost out. The CBI urge businesses to avoid a power vacuum after the next election and focus on the key decisions needed to continue to drive economic growth. And we spend more time with our correspondent in Singapore, Rico Hizon, as the country mourns the death of its founder Prime Minister.
