The leading British blog about personal finance and consumer affairs by a young person (24 years old!) for young people!
- No jargon
- No yawn-inducing facts and figures
- No paid-for blogs or advertising
This is a non-profit blog which is entirely on the reader’s side. Any guest articles promote only reputable services and other financial blogs. This blog does not accept poor content advertising dubious products/services and written purely for search engine optimisation.
I’m here to cover important financial issues affecting our generation in a clear and down-to-earth way.
I’m from Scotland, where thriftiness thrives, and started out as a music journalist (am still an avid musician and play in a rock band!) I then started taking an intense interest in personal finance and the effects of the recession on my peers.
I realised that, in the UK, there’s no dedicated coverage on financial issues that young people can readily understand and access. Since starting the blog, I have become a freelance financial journalist writing regularly for newspapers as well as trade publications and numerous websites. I also write a regular column for investment house Baillie Gifford on investing for children and young people.
YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE NEVER HAD IT SO TOUGH AND I’M HERE TO HELP.
