    Insurance is one of those things that deep down, you know it's important to have but perhaps don't realise the value of it until it's too late. These days, it feels like there is an insurance policy for everything - income protection, life, health, contents, car, house, travel...the list goes on.

    So how do we decide which ones are most important to pay for? Should we have them all? Which ones do we actually need? Is it a...

    This of course could be anything. Our parents might know more about the specific field they work in or have more life experience, but if we're more literate in finance (i.e. we work in the indus...

    Often we talk about wanting to achieve financial freedom, how to budget, invest and grow our money but this topic of changing our mindset around money can be forgotten. But, how we think about money determines the role it has in our lives. Our purpose and the "why" behind our money can directly influence the 'how'.

     Society tells us that getting on the property ladder for the first time is the hardest thing you can do, but no one ever talks about what it's like after that. So today we're answering the question "Once I'm on the property ladder, how do I take the next step?".

    We hear success stories in the media about owning 5 houses, but what if that's not what we want? Or if we do, how do we actually get there?
