Our newly built “Triage Quiz” will help tailor our readers' journey, guiding people to a) the right product or advice solution & b) three potential providers.
With 5+ years' experience of listening to readers, we know which of our 'Money Tribes' feel baffled & need help. In 2022 we plan to launch the Boring Money Investment Club app & community platforms. Video & live content. Shared experiences. Relevant forums. Empowerment.
Our first Investment Club will be for women in their 40s & 50s. An audience we know & love. We'll make content for them. With them. Supported by our community of female advisers & investment professionals.
And when our less confident Tribes can't find the products they want, we'll go a step further. Making products with our Tribes. For our Tribes. Turning investment upside-down.
