Learn how to build wealth - investing, pensions, the psychology of money - even things like how to get a payrise. We’re not taught about money so most of us don’t know how to build long term wealth, but with a bit more knowledge and confidence you can change your financial future. Our focus is on the big stuff, teaching you the strategies and mindset shifts that can have a significant impact on your life. This is the financial education we wish we'd had.

    This is not financial advice. The reason it’s not financial advice is because it’s not tailored to you.

He talks T through those concerns and answers your biggest questions.
