Informed Choice Radio - personal finance peace of mind with Martin Bamford


Oct 31, 2016

My guest for this episode of Informed Choice Radio is Andy Webb.

Andy is a personal finance blogger, bargain hunter and journalist, covering all things money and consumer.

He is the founder of Be Clever With Your Cash, a website which he launched in February 2014 following a long career with the BBC, including a stint working on The Money Programme.

You might recognise Andy’s voice, as he is a regular on television and radio, as a money expert for The Money Advice Service.

Andy’s website, Be Clever With Your Cash, gets more than 70,000 visitors a month and has resulted in some fantastic awards for Andy, most recently Best Personal Finance Blog at the 2016 Money Blogger Awards. He was also highly commended for Best Personal Finance Blog at the 2016 Headlinemoney Awards.

As you will hear in this episode, Andy is passionate about not wasting cash and wants to help others achieve their dreams. He’s the founder of UK Money Bloggers; a network of personal finance and money saving bloggers who get together to share ideas, experiences and opportunities.

In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, I speak to Andy about the growing community of money bloggers in the UK, how people with an interest in personal finance can get started online, and some basic steps to make the most of your money.
