Stay home, stay safe, stay healthy

Of course, our finances are only important if we are all staying safe and healthy. Preventing the spread of the virus is key, so we should all be mindful of following government advice.

Keeping financially healthy in turbulent times

Managing your finances during a time like this is challenging. There are few one-sized-fits solutions, since we’re each in our own individual situation.

However, here are a few things that we all should keep in mind:

  • Don’t panic. This may be easier said than done at a time like this. But when it comes to your finances, panic usually leads to poor decisions.
  • Understand your financial position. Good advice for one person during a challenging time may be terrible advice for another. Be wary of enacting any advice before considering whether it really fits your personal situation.
  • The ‘rules’ still apply. The world seems upended right now, but the basics of good financial management still apply. That is, continue to mind basics like being prudent with spending, being wary of debt, and not making rash decisions.
