Be Cautious About Cash

During the Covid-19 lockdown UK households have been saving a lot more cash than normal. Bank of England statistics show that deposit balances had an average monthly increase of £53 Billion between March and May.

When should you retire?

Historically, most people had a set retirement date. Why is that? It's probably because that's what their employer set as a retirement date. But why then? Why retire when someone else says so?

Christmas 2019

Not many of you will know, but Christmas for me personally has always been a more difficult and thoughtful time of the year, because on 18th December 2005 I lost my sister to breast cancer.
