  • A Single Irishwoman Gets Honest About Her Financials
    safer with our incomes Aoife Kelly Head of PR at Havas Worldwide was raised in a financially savvy household and that is reflected in her current situation as she has both a savings account and a pension unlike 41 of readers who do not have a retirement fund Aoife Kelly 34 Head of PR at Havas Worldwide Single Breadwinner I love my job and life in Dublin says Aoife I live in Ringsend renting with a housemate and I am eternally grateful that I didn t get on the property ladder years ago as I d be in negative equity now I started earning enough money to pay my rent and bills in my early twenties and I ve been financially independent since something my parents instilled in me from very early on My mum was always savvy when it came to money matters While Aoife may have been a bit carpe diem with her funds in her early twenties she s now started to seriously consider her future plans Now I always save ten per cent of my paycheque in a savings account for a nest egg and I also have a pension She finds that her biggest financial constraint is living in Dublin as the cost of living is just so high As much as I love the city and the lifestyle that comes with it when it comes to finances living in Dublin city can be very stressful There s always a bill around the corner and my financial pressure comes mostly from not budgeting properly I m a left brained creative person so accounting definitely isn t my strong suit I have a car that required a loan which I recently finished paying and I m going to put some of that extra cash into my pension I don t have any shares or investments just my current and savings accounts and a credit card Sinead Ryan financial advisor says Aoife s situation is great overall She s not in debt and rents rather than pays a mortgage which gives her flexibility Her pension plan and savings show discipline about future finances but I wonder whether it s at the expense of her current outgoings She doesn t have specific goals for her money which makes it easy to dip into her savings Aoife has paid off her car loan so why not divert some of the monthly amount toward saving for the next one If this is put in a deposit account earmarked only for The Car it will make it less likely to be raided for other things It will also reduce the need to borrow next time round She can open another for The Holiday To stay on top of bills and help reach your savings goals it s worth keeping your savings accounts separate from your actual current account for example with a RaboDirect savings account they cost nothing to set up so have several earmarked for different things In Aoife s

    demystified delivered in a wholly unique way The purpose of the festival is to break down even the most complex global domestic economic issues in an attempt to engage the most financially jargon challenged layman It s about using the universal language of comedy to stir up real debate on serious macro micro financial issues Created by David McWilliams bestselling author renowned Irish economic commentator the Kilkenomics Festival makes economics accessible by tackling real issues whilst looking at the lighter side of what is a typically highbrow discipline Oh it s worth mentioning too that Kilkenomics doesn t stop after the last panel discussion each evening Not by a long way Thousands of festival goers take the conversation debate into the pubs streets of Kilkenny till the wee hours There s even a festival nightclub over the three nights for those of you who want to argue the finer points of Consumer price index the Hessian Matrix or Delta gamma approximation thank you Google search We can t guarantee how coherent these topics will be for all in attendance but you ll have a laugh along the way Here s a snapshot of some of the topics to expect How the world actually works Financial markets what to look out for in 2015 Economics of music how 100 000 years of evolution lead to Miley Cyrus How to speak money the misleading use of language in economics Sex drugs rock n roll the economics of sin and lots more So why sponsor Kilkenomics As the Straight Talking Savings Bank we saw the opportunity to support a festival which shares some crucially similar ideals In RaboDirect we pride ourselves on our ability to tell it as it is savings specialists without the jargon If you connect the dots which we did
