We’re big advocates or people improving their knowledge of financial matters. And the typical level of knowledge is very poor. We’ve blogged about this issue before – see the related stories below – but the reality is that most people are ill-prepared for most of life’s major financial decisions.
Credit has become so readily available in the last few decades that we hardly give it a second thought. But given that the average indebtedness is around £10,000 per head, that millions of Brits have little if any savings, and millions more have a bad credit rating or serious debt problems there is clearly a need for some light to be shed on the realities of credit.
In an attempt to contribute to improving people’s knowledge we’ve launched a new podcast that we’re calling “Money Matters” – and yes this does have at least two meanings. You can find our new personal finance podcast here, or access immediately from the podcast player below. You can also find it on iTunes (search “Solution Loans” or visit here) where you can download to keep on your phone for when you need it!
