CFA Society Ireland launches "Money Matters"

CFA Society Ireland is proud to launch Money Matters, a new book to help Transition Year students become more comfortable with personal finance, investing, and enterprise, with the overarching aim of increasing the level of financial literacy in Ireland.

The book covers a wide range of topics, from managing household bills, choosing a credit card, choosing mortgages, and investing in the stock market. It is the first dedicated textbook for financial management for Irish students.

Our book aims to teach students the theory of finance to help them make informed and practical decisions when it comes to their own money.

We believe our Money Matters book will reach beyond the classroom and will be of interest to people from all walks of life.

To purchase a copy, please email info@cfaireland.ie. Price €12.95 plus postage. 

Niall McDonnell CFA, President at CFA Society Ireland, said:

"Every day I encounter family and friends, young and old, who don't know what mortgage rate they are paying, where their pension fund is invested or what rate they are being charged on loans."

"I hope that this book gives a solid foundation for teachers to teach financial literacy in their schools. I'm confident that students will find the book useful and that it will help them throughout their lives, whether they are simply looking to borrow money for a car or set up their own business or indeed if they decide to have a career in finance."

The author, Susan Hayes Culleton CFA, said:

"It has been an enormous pleasure to write this. It can make such a difference to an individual's life if they feel comfortable managing their own money. I'm fortunate to have the opportunity to work with thousands of teenagers each year and I'm always so impressed at their ability to absorb new tools and techniques with an open mind.

With thanks to CFA Institute and our publisher EdCo for their support and recognition of this project.
