Personal finance is now a growth area as more and more people realize that they must start planning their own finances from the minute they leave school. This text explains to readers with a limited knowledge of finance how they can design their own investment portfolio, arrange their own pension, identify their insurance needs and select the most suitable form of mortgage to buy a house. It should equip both the student and the general reader with the basic knowledge needed to begin to manage their own financial affairs, to discuss their financial affairs more intelligently with a financial adviser and also to test the competence of the financial advisor.
