You may have seen Boring Money, the new website launched by Holly Mackay, formerly of The Platforum.
The site was created out of Holly’s desire to see financial planning made easier for the general public to understand and follow. Her aim is to remove the stuffiness, jargon and ‘gumpf’ and strip back certain areas of financial planning into something anyone can understand.
As well as offering practical tips and information, the site has a question and answer section, for the general public to submit any questions they have. They also run campaigns aimed at certain demographics; one of the first campaigns was aimed at parents and understanding, for example, JISAs.
The most recent campaign is “Ladies Losing Out” and focuses on helping women feeling more confident taking over their own finances. Our Director, Cathi, was asked to help with this, and you can see the campaign, and Cathi’s contribution, here.
We love the Boring Money campaign, and how it aims to make finance more relatable for more people, and will continue to support it however we can.
