Description

Teenagers and students in the UK have more money than ever before, but there is remarkably little professional advice available on how they should handle their finances, apart from leaflets and brochures linked to student accounts and other services. "The Teenager's Guide to Money" changes all that. This accessible and comprehensive guide explains clearly and simply how money works, why money isn't boring, and why looking after your money really does matter. Packed with practical and jargon-busting advice, it covers everything teenagers want and need to know about how to get the best out of their money, from basic financial planning, through saving and travel money, to the first job, leaving home and taking out loans. Later chapters also give an introduction to areas they will need to understand as adults, including investment, buying a home, pensions and insurance. With increasing pressure on schools to teach basic financial awareness to pupils, and with debt in the form of student loans looming ever larger in young people's lives, there has never been a better time for "The Teenager's Guide to Money".show more
