Every working day, British savers unnecessarily lose about £200 million. That’s an almost unbelievable £50 billion a year. This is money which we should have kept, but because we make common mistakes with how we manage our money, far too much of it actually ends up in the pockets of financial services insiders – salespeople, advisers, fund managers, pension companies, bankers, life insurance firms, City traders and many others who are keen to look after our money for us.
We cannot continue to lose this £200 million a day. We have to get more for our money if we are ever to build any kind of financial security for ourselves and our families. That’s why I’ve written The 25 Worst Money Mistakes People Make. I want to warn people about the huge number of varied, ingenious and sometimes deceitful ways the financial professionals are siphoning off our money making themselves richer and us poorer in the process. Only by understanding what is going on can we ever hope to fight back against those who so eagerly take our money and only by knowing the many tricks and traps which make us poorer can we ever have a chance of securing our own financial futures.
