Established in 2011, the Young Money Blog is the first British blog to help young people get to grips with personal finance.

We are proud to be non-profit, authentic, independent and ethical. Anything you see on here hasn’t been bought or guided by commercial considerations – what you see here is journalism.

Its founder, Iona Bain, has gone onto establish a career as a personal finance journalist, author and commentator – you can find out more about her here.

She is Freelancer of the Year, a governor of the Pensions Policy Institute and a founding member of the Next Generation Pensions Committee. She won Money Blogger of the Year at the 2016 Santander Media Awards and appears regularly on TV, radio and podcasts. Iona’s most recent appearances have included Late Night Woman’s Hour, Radio 4’s Moneybox, BBC Scotland, BBC Breakfast, ITV Tonight and Radio 5 Live.

We want to cover important news, insightful views, helpful developments and all the big issues affecting young people and their prosperity.
