Europe’s economic slowdown

Is there room for any further disappointment?

Pension decluttering

Have you considered tidying up your arrangements?

It would appear we are now increasingly becoming a ‘consolidation nation’, with many people combining their different contracts and services to make them easier to manage. It’s a growing trend, and new innovations are coming into the market all the time to tempt consumers. The recent launch of ‘quad-play packages’, which now combines mobile, home phone, broadband and TV, are a good example. Read the rest of this entry »

Plugging the household gap

UK adults forced to borrow money from family members

More than one in four (28%) UK adults have been forced to borrow money from family members, according to new research. With the average amount borrowed by individuals standing at £2,123, the collective family lending economy is now worth around £31billion.
