The countdown begins! Since writing my first book, Liquid Millionaire (published March 2009), I have been busy working on my second. I am pleased to announce that How to Make Money in ISAs and SIPPs will be available to buy from March 1st 2014.
To answer any questions you may have about my new book, I have created an easy to read FAQ:
Can you tell me about the book please?
Yes, How to Make Money in ISAs and SIPPs is the first book of its kind to focus on how to secure a richer retirement using the UK's two top tax shelters; ISAs and SIPPs.
It’s the ultimate guide for ‘affluent’ DIY investors approaching retirement or in retirement looking to beat the market and achieve better returns.
My brother and I decided that we wanted to donate all the book royalties to The Christie; a specialised cancer centre with a long standing reputation (since 1901) for high quality diagnosis, treatment and care for cancer patients.
Why did you decide to give all the book royalties to The Christie?
The Christie is a charity close to our hearts. Our Mum was diagnosed with lung cancer in the 2000’s and The Christie played a big part in helping her to ‘beat it.’ Our mum is currently in remission and is currently in great health.
Who this book is aimed at?
How to Make Money in ISAs and SIPPs is aimed at ISA and SIPP investors – or those thinking of investing in ISAs or SIPPs – who are unhappy with their investment performance and want to boost their returns. It’s for UK residents either approaching retirement or in retirement.
It’s perfect for business owners, self-employed professionals, corporate executives, wealthy retirees and financial professionals such as independent financial advisers (IFAs), wealth managers and pension trustees. It’s ideal for individuals who class themselves as either DIY investors, sophisticated investors or financial professionals. It’s also essential reading for investors who have at least £250,000 actively invested.
What will I learn by reading your book?
Inside, you discover how ISAs and SIPPs can boost your returns, create a tax-free income for life and help to reduce the risk of running out of money during retirement.
You will also learn:
- How to create a ‘tax-free’ lifetime income stream
- A fast, easy way to find funds ‘in the money flow’
- When to buy and exit at the optimum time
