Rise in Low Interest Rate Credit Card Deals, But Beware of Cash Charges / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: MoneyFacts

The latest research from Moneyfacts.co.uk shows that the number of low rate credit cards (cards charging less than 12%) has grown by a third in the past two years, rising from just 12 cards in 2013 to 16 today. The lowest purchase card now on offer charges just 6.4% APR for standard purchases and is the lowest rate card on the market since 2006, when a 5.9% APR card was available*.

These cards can be a cost-effective choice for those borrowers who are unsure about being able to clear their balance within the timeframe set by a card with an interest-free introductory purchase or balance transfer offer.

UK Loan Rate War Consolidate Borrowings and Save £££'s / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: MoneyFacts

With an estimated 6.5 million* people relying on credit to keep up with essential outgoings, it’s clear to see why taking time to consolidate debts into a single, more affordable monthly payment could make a huge difference to people’s finances.

According to the latest research by Moneyfacts.co.uk, the ongoing cuts to unsecured personal loan pricing also means that customers who switch or take out a new loan today can save hundreds of pounds over the fixed term of their agreement. On average, well-known banks now offer loans that are £396 a year cheaper in interest payments for a £7,500 loan over a five-year period compared with 2013, while loans from challenger brands are £222 cheaper for the same loan agreement.

How to Force Your Boss to Give You a Pay Rise / Personal_Finance / Wages

By: DailyWealth

Mark Ford writes: Over the years, I've had the awkward duty of declining raises to dozens of employees.

Most of them simply sulked and disappeared. But a few of them took the experience as a wake-up call and fought back.

They didn't see themselves as losers, and they weren't going to let me view them that way, either.

If you get turned down for a raise, arguing with your boss won't do you any good.

UK Best Current Accounts - The End of ‘Free’ Banking? / Personal_Finance / UK Banking

By: MoneyFacts

This month marks the two-year anniversary of the Current Account Switch Guarantee, and while many consumers have already taken advantage and switched providers, greater momentum could be caused by incoming changes to the retail banking market.

Last month the CMA reported that of the 17% of customers who start looking to switch their current account, a staggering 86% don’t go on to switch. It is also estimated that the annual rate of switching stands at just 3%, and worryingly, 25% of switchers move their account without researching the market first.* Meanwhile, frequent overdraft users were found to be the least likely group of consumers to move, due to the hurdles of securing an overdraft facility with their new bank and the complexities of comparing account charges (something that is increasing in importance as average authorised overdraft usage fees have crept up from £4.59 to £6.74 in just two years).

Don't Let 'The Glidepath Illusion' Ruin Your Retirement / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: DailyWealth

Dan Ferris writes: The traditional notion of retirement says you should take bigger risks in the stock market when you're young.

You have more time to make up for losses than when you're older. As you age, you should take less and less risk, so you won't lose your retirement money... so the conventional wisdom goes.

It’s Hard to Be Broke and Happy at the Same Time / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: Editorial Note: There's no ignoring what's happening in the markets today. Global fears have sent U.S. stocks into a free fall. Of course, we're not going to pretend it's the best of times. But, as Alex has advised in the past, now is not the time to try and time the markets. In his words, "Nobody rings a bell at the top of the market. So the amateur lurches about and suddenly gets out... then finds that stocks keep going up without him." As we write, the Dow is already up 338 points from this morning's low. So keep that in mind as your fellow investors run screaming into the streets.

A new report from Bankrate.com reveals that more Americans than ever are saving nothing for retirement.
