Too many people sit in limp current accounts because they don’t know what else to do. And money is a massive cause of anxiety, stress and concern. It make most people feel too thick. Too poor. And like they’re bottom of the class! We know that 95% of people feel like this and our mission is to help.
Everything you read on this site is a genuine opinion. No-one tells us what to say or slips us a tenner to suck up to them. There’s no links to anything sub-standard because we’ve been paid for it. If we like third-party content, we use it. If we don’t, we don’t.
I am very conscious that people trust us with their decisions about what to do with their savings. That is a huge responsibility. Neither I nor anyone who works for me will abuse that.
I set up Boring Money after 17 years in the investment markets, watching in amazement as grey people in suits spout torrents of waffle which no-one normal understands.
Basic investing is no harder than Dragon’s Den. You back the world’s leading companies and hope that they continue to make more money than they spend in production.
Trouble is, this all gets wrapped in layers of jargon and rules and acronyms and the Government adds to the kerfuffle by tinkering with the rules all the time – so we end up with complex 20 page reports which make no sense unless you are an actuary.
Boring Money is designed to help people to make some sensible decisions. To validate what they’re up to. And to feel confident about putting their money to work.
I have learnt that we make more money by being honest – because you lot trust us, you come to the site, you engage, you leave reviews and you tell us what you like – we can then use all these insights to sell consultancy and research back to the industry and help them lift their game.
Thanks for visiting our site – if you like it, please tell your friends. Word of mouth is great for us and I’d rather not spend any more than I need to on Google or the evil empire of Facebook :0)
