UK Savers Loyalty Doesn’t Pay / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Loyalty savings products are often marketed as exclusive deals that are only available to the select few who hold the right products. If you fit the criteria, this can be a tempting offer, but these deals don’t necessarily offer the best rates on the market.

Moneyfacts.co.uk analysed products that are only available to customers who hold existing accounts with the provider and found that they would actually be better off shopping around, something that is clearly illustrated in the table below.

(Editor’s Note: This is Doug Casey’s foreword to Casey Research’s Handbook for Surviving the Coming Financial Crisis.)

Right now, we are exiting the eye of the giant financial hurricane that we entered in 2007, and we’re going into its trailing edge.

Best Cash ISA for 2016-17, 4% Help to Buy and P2P 9% Alternatives? / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Good news, its a new tax year which means savers can deposit upto £15,240 into a tax free cash ISA savings account. Now for the bad news, the banking syndicate's cash ISA rates continue to be relentlessly ground down towards ZERO, where each new tax year tends to see worsening rates offered and this year is no different, Worse still is that Britains banks tend to further penalise ISA savers by typically paying LESS interest than on the SAME term NON ISA account, which makes a mockery of the large annual ISA allowances of £15,240, which means its near impossible to find a rate even half the 5% that could be secured in the pre-funding for lending scheme days (July 2012).

Has the Financial World Learned its Lesson from Madoff? / Personal_Finance / Scams

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

The idea of anything as devastating as the Madoff scandal ever happening in the financial world again is a terrifying one; the Ponzi scheme is considered one of the biggest economic crimes of recent years, affecting thousands of private and corporate investors. Many of its victims are still attempting to rebuild their lives, despite almost eight years passing since Bernie Madoff’s tearful confession to his sons one December evening in 2008. It’s therefore not difficult to see why so many are fearful of history repeating itself. Two big questions remain unanswered though; why was Madoff allowed to get away with his scheme for so long, and has the financial world really learned its lesson?

Using Crowdfunding As Part Of A Comprehensive Personal Finance Strategy / Personal_Finance / Money Making

By: Larissa_James

Crowdfunding is being used for everything these days, from launching promising startups to affording education. As you chart out your personal financial goals and the plan that you need to achieve them, you may find yourself wondering about the possibilities for crowdfunding to help you in your own life. This is especially true if you’re struggling with debt or if you can’t seem to get solid footing for yourself when it comes to paying your bills.

In some cases, crowdfunding is the right way to go, but you have to know what you’re doing; otherwise, you’ll earn zero donations, and you might damage your reputation in the process.
