Christmas gift giver personality

We think there are five archetypes for modern Christmas gift giving approaches. These impact how you plan and budget for the festive season. From the enthusiast or Santa-fanatic (lovers of this time of year) through to the Santaphobe (those who perceive it all to be a commercial farce).

#MyFinancial Advice

Esther Andersen #myfinancialadvice

The best piece of financial advice I was ever given growing up was ‘you need to spend money to make money!’

Jason Akermanis #myfinanicaladvice

One of the best pieces of financial advice I ever received wasn’t directly about money. It was - ‘Marry the right person. This one decision will decide 90% of your happiness or misery’

Jeff Fenech #myfinancialadvice

One of the best pieces of financial advice I’ve received was from the very successful businessman Theo Onisforou. He told me when I was in my early 50’s that ‘usually when something is too good to be true, it probably is’.

Peter Berner #myfinancialadvice
