Put your money to work

You’ve got your budget under control and now you have some free cash. What should you do with it? If this is you, then you’ve come to the right place.

If you are still asking yourself what’s the best savings account or should I move my money from a 0.5% to a 0.6% savings account, then you’re are asking yourself the wrong questions. Those are £10 per year questions for most people. Focusing on these questions is going to distract you from greater financial goals. It can also lead to stress and lots of personal admin time as you search out the current best place to park your spare cash.

We are here to help you create a money mindset that focuses on the £10,000 questions and not the £10 ones. We want you to have a system that takes the financial stress away and frees up your headspace for living and enjoying life.

A third of British adults have less than £600 in savings (source). With so little in savings, people risk financial ruin from even a minor life event like a car breakdown.

Savings vs Investing

Building financial wealth requires using a combination of all the savings and investing tools out there. Your choice of tool is down to your own appetite for risk. All I can share is what we do and why we do it. Educating yourself is one of the most important ways you can improve your financial fitness.

If you haven’t set a budget or paid off debt then do this first. Next, make sure you have an Emergency Fund. Getting these things right means you have a solid foundation to build on.

Your choice to invest, saving, add to your pension or pay off your mortgage is a personal one. If you’d like to discuss your choices with other like-minded individuals and the ESM team then check out our Facebook community.
