Unlike other financial websites, Financial Expert does not accept payment for 'sponsored posts', 'advertorial features' or similar content. If the article is hosted on this website, it was written by the stated author.
We live by our principles
Articles will include as much reference as possible to our own personal experiences of investing over the years, and our real portfolios. Learn from our mistakes rather than your own!
We like to listen, too
Financial Expert steers clear of subjects which lean heavily on speculation e.g. 'will the price of Company A go up?'. There is still plenty of room for a multitude of views on the topics we do cover, and encourage dialogue in the comments section of each article.
Investing is our passion
Investing is more than just an exercise of adminstration; it's a passion. The articles on this website hopefully convey that level of enthusiasm and will hopefully convert you too!
