The Anonymous Widower

Open Banking

Open Banking – Not for me.

But as a retired world-class programmer, I can envisage an AI-based computer system, that you can run on your laptop to guide your financial decisions!

In my lifetime, I have come across various pieces of financial advice, that proved to be totally crap.

For a start, I’ve met at least four people, who used the strength of the Icelandic banking system to lose all their savings.

Every financial expert told me not to touch Zopa. But it has paid me five percent before tax on my savings for ten years.

There’s an old City joke.

The best way to make a small fortune is to give a large one to a financial adviser.

Many a true word was spoken in jest.
