Recent articles

Welcome to Your Wealth. In our pilot episode, we look at strategies to save for your children’s education expenses – a serious topic for many parents and grandparents with young kids. I interview finance expert Katie Whiffen about when to start saving, how much you need, saving vs investing and whether borrowing can help.
 

Katie and I cover the pros and cons of products and strategies such as:

  • Regular savings plans
  • Managed funds and separately managed accounts
  • Education saving plan products, and
  • Borrowing to invest.
