World Health Day

As the World is focusing on World Health Day and the new financial year is upon us, why not take this as an opportunity to review your Financial Health as well.

Many of us would like to save and invest but are unsure if we can afford it. Scottish Friendly has some handy tools below that may be able to help you. The tools are designed to see how you can get started.

Check out our 'How time flies' indicator, investing for 5 to 10 years might not be as long as you think.

Can I afford it?

Saving doesn’t need to cost much. You could of course put vast sums of money away. But if you don’t have trillions, a little bit every month does the trick. We spend small change regularly without a second thought of how it adds up. Unsure? Spin the 'Can I afford it?' wheel.
