MYFE Book 1:
A quick start guide
Those who manage our savings and investments have a tendency to
make the process appear complex and intimidating. It's neither.
This book will give you a simple plan anyone can understand, and it
will only take 30 minutes of your time per year.
It will outperform 80% of finance professionals in the long run, and
make you financially self sufficient, possibly even well-to-do,
But, it's not a 'get-rich-quick' plan. Successful saving and investing
require time and patience.
And yet, by following a few simple rules you can manage your stress
and your saving and investment risks while securing your short,
medium and long-term goals.
If you haven't yet begun your saving and investment journey,
this book will give you a road map for more successfully achieving
your financial goals - even if you're having difficulty saving.

MYFE Book 2:
Investment market performance
Available in 2023
Book 2 is structured to give you a better understanding of how the
investment markets, and the many asset classes within them (including
property, ESG and crypto assets), have delivered for investors over time.
It tells you how to break through confusing, and often misleading, market terminology, to help you focus on the returns which matter most to you.
There are numerous illustrations, so if you’re short of time, just look at
the graphics – they tell their own story.
Additionally, this book arms you with vital questions to ask of any
financial adviser before allowing them to manage your money.
The ultimate purpose of Book 2 is to show you how the investment
markets perform over time, and thus why you should consider acquiring the confidence to invest your savings in them.

MYFE Book 3:
Implementing your investment plan
Available in 2023
Too many investment guides tell you what to do, but not how to do it.
They point you to the playground, but don’t tell you which swings and
roundabouts are most fun and safe, and which are dangerous.
MYFE 3 starts by helping you understand the nature of investment risk, how it’s measured and what it means to you. It also helps you assess your personal tolerance and capacity for risk.
Then it goes on to show you valid alternatives for where (which
platforms) and how (which funds) to invest your savings depending on
your personal financial objectives - short, medium or long-term.
It also outlines alternative approaches for you and a partner, even if
you’re both the same age with the same financial goals and expectations.
In short, Book 3 walks you through the online mechanics of investing.
Once again, there are many illustrations showing the multiple steps and
choices available to you.
