As you know, I have taken a couple of weeks off while I have been cooking a couple of things up. Now it’s time to let you know what is going on. This is only a short podcast, but it’s the easiest way I know to get the message out to everyone who needs to know!
This podcast is brought to you with the help of Seven Investment Management, a firm of investment managers based in London. They specialise in multi-asset investing, bringing institutional investing techniques to ordinary people like you and me. 7IM put their name to my show and to my site because they believe in what I’m doing, trying to get decent, easy-to-understand financial information out to the world. I’m very grateful to them for their support.

Three main changes
1. New website coming soon
I'm hopeful that the new site will be up in a couple of weeks' time. It's a massive task though and requires going through several hundred posts to recategorise them. I want to make it easier for folks to find the content most applicable to them.
In the podcast I promised a sneak preview of the new homepage:
Hopefully you can see that it'll be easier to find the content applicable to the four main financial lifestages…
2. Broader Reach
This is going to be tricky, but I want to broaden my reach outside the UK. I have always been very specific about how to go about things from a UK perspective. There is always a danger that, in the pursuit of a broader reach, I end up being so non-specific that no-one is helped. I'm determined not to let that happen, but do want to focus more on the general principles of personal finance and less on the minutiae.
It'll be a fine line to walk – watch this space…
3. Podcast Seasons
With 162 sessions of the podcast, there's a lot of in-depth information here. while initially it was easy to follow a logical path, as the sessions have racked up, the subject matter has become increasingly fractured.
So I plan to adopt a seasons approach for the show, covering a subject in-depth over a few weeks. Between seasons, I'll take the chance to address some one-off subjects. In the meantime, any other topics which occur to me that don't easily fit into the podcast season format will be dealt with either on video, in a written post or in a bite-size podcast between season shows.
And that's it, really. I remain 100% committed to the podcast and everything else MM stands for. There are further developments in the pipeline which I can't wait to share with you later this year.
In the meantime, thanks for your ongoing support!
