4.5 Week 4 and course round-up

Martin concludes the course by reviewing the subjects and issues covered.

The financial services industry will continue to change and evolve in coming decades as will the way it is regulated.

Consumers should expect to deal with trained and professional staff at the financial firms they do business with. They should also expect that financial firms are properly regulated and that product selling is subject to appropriate safeguards for their customers.

But the fact is that to make best use of the financial market place requires education to ensure that consumers make knowledgeable and effective decisions.

We do hope that Managing my financial journey has helped to put you in that position.
