The Financial Times says over six weeks, readers will get expert advice and practical tools to help them make smarter money decisions and supercharge their personal finances in 2024. Written by consumer editor Claer Barrett, the series costs £19, and is free for standard and premium FT subscribers. The series is also packed with money saving tips, weekly quizzes, practical tasks and free access to relevant FT articles.
Claer Barrett said: “There’s too much jargon in personal finance. My aim is to demystify money and help people grasp the essential “need to knows” – so they can get on with the things in life that they’d rather be doing.”
FT head of newsletters Sarah Ebner said: “Claer is brilliant at giving readers the tools and information they need to make better financial decisions. With her expertise, this new series will be hugely helpful to anyone who wants to improve their relationship with money.”
Each week the series will unpick a new area of personal finance, added the FT – from pensions and how to ask for a pay rise, to mortgages and how to build an investment portfolio. Each module will give readers the knowledge and confidence they need to create their own financial plan and make better money decisions.
