Week in review: 14th August 2015

Week in reviewSunshine and showers. Sunshine and torrential thunderstorms.

It’s been another week of typical British summer weather here in Cranleigh, although Nick and Andy spent part of it on holiday in sunny Dorset and Martin picked the best weather of the week for a trip across to Cowes.

This week on the Informed Choice website, the team have been writing about our sponsorship of the new Cranleigh Classical Recital Series, why you shouldn’t rely on inheritance windfalls, what on earth is going on in China, how much spare cash you need to be happy, and why German car brands matter for your Financial Planning.

In the latest episode of the Informed Choice Podcast, Martin talks about investment sharks who are after your pension fund, why couples are choosing to put in place ‘pre-pup’ agreements in case of divorce, and how the rapper 50 Cent tricked us into believing he was living a luxury lifestyle.
