Money is important not as an end in itself but because it pays for the things you want to do in life. The better you can manage your money, the more choices and opportunities become available to you.
Whether you have a little or a lot, it makes sense to manage your money as effectively as possible; to put in place and action a plan which covers everything from drawing up an everyday budget to making provision for yourself and your family in the future.
The financial world is complex and constantly changing.
Unable to sort out your money problems or priorities?
Uncertain about how and where best to invest your savings?
Keen to save money on your mortgage?
Unsure about how the Property (Relationships) Act might affect you?
Worried about taking out a student loan?
Bemused by all the decisions and choices confronting you?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then this book is a very good place to start. It answers these and hundreds of other questions you might have about your money.
As well as providing basic information and advice to help you with your money-related decisions and choices, it also summarises pertinent points of law in areas that sooner or later will touch the lives of every New Zealander. Included, too, are contact addresses, Internet references and suggestions for further reading.
