Description

When it comes to money and saving, it sometimes feels like there are two types of people: those who always seem to have spare change to stash away regardless of how much they earn; and those who despite earning a good wage, struggle to make ends meet and are always desperate to get the next pay packet into their account!

Whichever camp you fall into, as long as you’re interested in savings and investment, we’ve got an event we think you’ll enjoy. Virgin Money Living Live is back for its second round of fun, informative discussions and this time the theme is ‘All you need to know about Saving and Investing’.

Hosted in the relaxed and unique setting of our Virgin Money Glasgow Lounge, Simon and Iona Bain, the father/daughter team behind the award-winning youngmoneyblog will be sharing their knowledge and expertise on two topics of conversation:

  • Everything you wanted to know about savings but were afraid to ask
  • 10 ways to invest £1,000

Iona Bain, founder of the award-winning youngmoneyblog, is a regular personal finance writer for The Herald newspaper, covering money issues that affect Scots every fortnight and author of the book ‘Spare Change: How to Save More, Budget and be Happy with Your Finances’. She was recently named Money Blogger of the Year at the Santander Financial Journalism Awards. Now also a broadcast journalist with the BBC, Iona’s on a mission to support personal finance education and young enterprise. She will be with us on the night, tackling the questions you need answering on savings. From pension problems to the intricacies of ISAs, Iona will explain how to get your nest egg going and growing.

Simon Bain, a veteran financial journalist with 37 years of experience and four-time Scottish financial writer of the year, loves investigating the murkier corners of money. Simon will be offering the insider’s guide to different ways you can invest £1,000: he will explore risk vs return on ten different investment options and highlight some of the longshots that have come off vs the benefits of taking it slow and steady.

This event is sure to be very popular so do make sure you book your free tickets today. Once you’ve secured your place you will receive an email from us nearer the time asking you to confirm your attendance. If we do not receive confirmation from you then your place may be given away to people on our waiting list. Please keep an eye on your inbox and be sure to let us know if you can make it.

We will be providing complimentary tea, coffee, soft drinks and nibbles on arrival and talks will start promptly at 6.20pm.

Please note that the evening is intended as a fun and informative introduction to the world of savings and investments and will help provide a broader understanding of the choices available to you. Both Iona and Simon are independent experts and will be able to answer your questions on the subjects discussed, but won’t be able to offer detailed personal financial advice.


We look forward to seeing you there!
