Making Money

Making Money

By Kindling Media

Learn how to build wealth - investing, pensions, the psychology of money - even things like how to get a payrise. We’re not taught about money so most of us don’t know how to build long term wealth, but with a bit more knowledge and confidence you can change your financial future. Our focus is on the big stuff, teaching you the strategies and mindset shifts that can have a significant impact on your life. This is the financial education we wish we'd had. Hosted by Damien Jordan (YouTube @DamienTalksMoney) and Timeyin Akerele. Contact us: makingmoney@kindling.media

S2E7: How to invest in single stocks (and why you probably shouldn’t) | Sasha Yanshin

Most people shouldn’t invest in single stocks - they’d be better off investing in index funds - but that doesn’t stop a lot of people trying. That’s the view of Sasha Yanshin, YouTuber, Damo’s friend and nemesis - and it’s Damo’s view too. Despite that, Sasha does invest in individual companies and Damo does keep up to 10% of his allocation for investing in specific stocks (because he enjoys it). In this episode, Sasha explains his process, as well as some best practices in case you want to chance your arm. But please be mindful of the risks and consider capping your exposure if it is something you want to try. -- Sponsors Sensate: Get help with your anxiety & 10% off with the code MM10: https://www.getsensate.com/makingmoney Unbiased: Get help with your money from a financial advisor: https://www.unbiased.co.uk/makingmoney -- Making Money Masterclass Sign up to the Masterclass: https://makingmoney.mykajabi.com/joinus … Newsletter If you want a bullet point summary from this episode, please subscribe to our newsletter: https://makingmoney.email/ep20 You can find all our previous newsletters on our website: www.makingmoneypodcast.co.uk/episodes. -- What's your financial health?

S2E1: The one thing you need to invest in (to beat 95% of professional investors) | PensionCraft's Ramin Nakisa

Everyone talks about diversification, but how diverse do you really need to be? Can you just invest in one fund? Ramin Nakisa is personal finance YouTube royalty in the UK. He’s one of the OGs who showed Damo that it can be done. But he’s also a ridiculously smart, former investment banker who left that world to teach ordinary people how to build wealth because, like us, he thinks there’s a ridiculous financial education hole in this country. Ramin walks us through some of the major assets classes, and their pros and cons - but also why one investment might just be enough for you to beat most professional investors, forever.

S1E10: How to keep your money safe | FSCS’s Emma Barrow

Financial institutions like banks have sometimes failed, so we want to know what happens to your money if they do. It’s a legitimate fear so we’re sitting down with Emma Barrow from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS are the ‘last resort’ who will pay you back your money if your bank fails, up to £85,000 per person per bank - but it’s a bit more complicated than that. Your bank has to be regulated in the UK and a bank is defined by the organisation that has a banking license which can cause problems. The FSCS don’t just cover banks though and there are plenty of important nuances, so let’s get to the bottom of it - when is your money protected? -- Sponsors Sensate: Get help with your anxiety & 10% off with the code MM10: https://www.getsensate.com/makingmoney Unbiased: Get help with your money from a financial advisor: https://www.unbiased.co.uk/makingmoney Manual: Fix your hair loss with code MM55 via https://bit.ly/48QBBo6. -- Making Money Masterclass Sign up to the Masterclass: https://makingmoney.mykajabi.com/joinus -- Newsletter If you want a bullet point summary from this episode, please subscribe to our newsletter: https://makingmoney.email/ep10.

S1E9: "I was so ashamed" - Damo reveals he could've gone bankrupt and explains how to get out of debt

1 in 4 people in the UK are in danger of falling into financial difficulties - a single shock like their car breaking down will result in them falling behind on bills or credit payments. Getting into debt can lead to a vicious cycle and massive problems - just ask Damo. He nearly went bankrupt in his 20s and in this episode he tells T for the first time how bad it got. It’s important to sort out problem debts before you can start doing wealth-building things like investing, so we explain when you’re most likely to get into debt and what to do to get out of it. You are not alone. For free advice, which we can’t recommend enough if you’ve got debt problems, please check out StepChange: https://www.stepchange.org/. By the way, Damo refers to the Consumer Credit Counselling Service in this episode. They are now called StepChange. This is the site Damo mentions (What’s The Cost) but so you know, it’s a slow and old school site: http://whatsthecost.com/.

Studies show that basic economic literacy means doing better with money over the long-term. So we invited Bank of England economists, Rupal Patel and Jack Meaning, round to tea to ask them the big questions: Why does inflation feel higher than it is? Is raising interest rates the best way to bring inflation down? Do politicians understand economics? Should we be optimistic about the UK's future?
