Welcome to the National Wealth Service. The first friendly guide to positive equity that's honest, readable and empowering, "Saving" tells you the real facts about money and puts you firmly in control of your finances. The cost of living is rising every year and pundits predict that there'll be no state pension in 30 years. Despite this, over 40 per cent of adults in the UK don't have a pension and 70 per cent admit they have no meaningful savings. But a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step: "Saving" shows how you don't have to be rich to get a Swiss bank account, mortgage or grow a nest-egg. In plain English, it covers everything from different types of bank accounts to pensions, offshore banks to financial advisors. You'll learn about ISAs, bonds, child trust funds, inheritance tax and even how to start your own antiques collection. There are all kinds of interesting suggestions how to grow the little you have into something much more substantial.Written by a creative young team of writers, illustrators, psychologists and financial experts who laugh in the face of financial jargon and tweak the nose of the organizations who want to profit from your mistakes, "Saving" wants to make you a millionaire.
The White Rabbit Series has brought together a young team of people who care passionately about turning negative subjects into positives. (Think Jamie Oliver and school dinners.) They include award-winning writers, a behavioural psychologist, a cult illustrator and financial experts amongst many others.
