Free financial advice for families with new MoneyFlex service

Unbiased.co.uk has launched an online community that allows consumers to submit money questions to a panel of top 60 financial advisers, which will be answered within 24 hours.

The service, MoneyFlex, is free and allows users to put questions to a panel – anything ranging from pensions, tax, mortgages or investments.

Users can also learn from other people’s experience by browsing through the Q&As.

Questions can be posted anonymously if a user wants to.

Unbiased is well known for listing financial advisers and this service will be an extended offering. The aim is to give consumers a new insight into the world of financial advice and better access to information.

    Hello,
    I’m the executor of my mother’s will and she has requested that her grandchildren inherit a proportion of her estate when they reach the age of 21 years. Until then, I need to hold their inheritance in an account, as a bare trust and as the trustee. They each have £3,900. What’s the best account to do this? Would a stocks and shares junior ISA be feasible, or something like the NSI bonds? I’m trying to find something with the best rate of return for them.
    Many thanks,

      Hello Emma,

      Very sorry to hear about your mother. I would say it’s certainly worth talking to a financial advisor as the best option would depend on various circumstances, such as age of children etc. Unbiased’s MoneyFlex is a good place to start, link is; https://www.unbiased.co.uk/moneyflex/ where you can address question to IFAs for free.
      If there’s anything else I can help with, please feel free to DM me.

Reduce your grocery bill by 70% this summer!

The kids are off school and they are going to be hungry – inevitably, the next few weeks will see the cost of your weekly shop shoot up.

To help families keep the costs of food shopping down, MMM put Approved Food to the test, which can help slash the cost of shopping by as much as 70%.

There is of course one catch – the food is past or close to its sell-by date, but perfectly safe.

With a £30 budget, MMM managed to bag a fair amount – cereals, tinned food, sweets and treats, drinks and even laundry detergent and dishwasher tablets – the sort of things where you can generally ignore the date stamped on the product.

If you’ve tried reducing the cost of the grub by switching brands or shopping at discount stores but think you can do better, then try Approved Food  – you’ll be surprised at just how much you could save on some store cupboard essentials.

New products are available everyday and there are some real bargains. For example, Sprite Zero 330ml for just 29p or a 2kg Reeses Peanut jar for just £2.99. There’s even stuff for pets, at more than 50% off.

MMM was really pleased with service and surprised at just how at just how much £30 would buy (see pic above/ instagram).

Although we would like to see Approved Food cut down on the cardboard packaging, the items arrived well packed and in excellent condition.

So, if you’re looking to save a few more pounds on your groceries, take a look at Approved food – you’ll be surprised at just how good the bargains are.
