With house prices going crazy, when you need a small mortgage to afford your daily espresso, when there are bills to pay, brunches to be had and a deposit to save for, everything can seem a bit financially crazy.

So if you have always wanted to do more with your money and learn about this ‘investing stuff’ then check out the event below…plus there will be champagne (cause we are fancy like that).

Now the world of investing can all seem very male, pale (and well a little bit stale) full of jargony words but we believe learning about investing doesn’t have to be confusing, complicated ...snoozeville stuff. In fact, it can be easy, fun, empowering and profitable when done right!

Our financial experts aka investing gurus are going to be breaking it all down so you can start building up with our epic 2 part event series…. There’ll also be champagne…(sorry did we already mentioned that?)
