Like talking to a friend (a really good one!)

I started listening to Frances’s podcast last year and was immediately hooked. She delivers financial information in a way that makes you feel as though you’re having a natter with a friend over coffee. I was lucky enough to chat with Frances in real life here in NZ, and, unsurprisingly, she was EXACTLY the same. Just lovely.
Authentic, knowledgable, humble, intelligent and kind. 5 stars!

Great podcast

This is such a great podcast Frances. You impart so much knowledge that’s easy to understand for the everyday individual. It’s the best way to learn about the financial world with a kiwi view
