ABOUT MONEY MENTOR
Here at money mentor we firmly believe that everybody should strive to attain a certain level of financial literacy and become equipped with the skills, knowledge, and ability, to understand money and how the system works. Without such an understanding, you are likely to be taken advantage of in one way or the other, and lose out financially in the process.
Money-mentor's mission is to enhance people’s awareness and knowledge on money related issues, thus enabling them to take control of their own finances themselves, with help, guidance and support from us.
We do this via education in financial literacy through our books and e-books, website materials and mentoring and money coaching sessions. Subjects covered can include debt management, objective setting and goal planning, budgeting, saving, tax efficient products, reasons for long term investing and ongoing support. If you need a financial coach or financial mentor, then please look at our coaching pages.
We are not financial advisers. We do not provide recommendations of specific investments to buy or sell, and are therefore not authorised or regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
