[About the book]

With the rapid expansion of personal finance study and qualifications in both the Higher Education and post-16 sectors, and an increased emphasis on ‘financial capability’, this innovative new book fills a yearning gap for a UK-centred introductory text on personal finance. It systematically covers all the main personal finance topics, such as expenditure and budgeting, savings and investments, borrowing, mortgages, insurance, and retirement planning. In addition, several unique features distinguish this book as a solid yet breakthrough academic text.

Written by a team of experienced teachers and professors of Economics and Business, Personal Finance successfully balances the fundamental principles of personal finance with the challenges of practical application. This highly authoritative and accessible text helps students and educators alike to master the essentials and to become less reliant on overseas texts for guidance in this high-growth sector.
