How to be Good with Money with the CCPC
January 10, 2019
The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) is delighted to sponsor a new personal finance TV programme called How to be Good with Money on RTÉ One starting this Thursday (10 January) at 8:30pm.
Each week on the programme, financial planner Eoin McGee helps a household to manage their money better and achieve their financial goals.
The series will show six real-life households dealing with different financial challenges, whether it’s tackling credit card debt or getting mortgage ready – empowering them to take control of their financial lives.
The CCPC recently published details of the first financial well-being study conducted in Ireland. The research looks at the factors that influence financial well-being, whether people in Ireland can meet all of their current financial needs comfortably and how they are able to deal with future financial shocks.
The report found that most people in Ireland are doing okay financially, but have little put by for the future for financial shocks. The CCPC’s research found that for many people, financial well-being is improved through two key behaviours: ‘active saving’ and ‘not borrowing for daily expenses’. The study also found that taking control of household and personal finances is important for improved financial well-being.
The CCPC has independent information and tools on ccpc.ie to help people manage their money better. Our comparison tools also allow consumers to compare mortgages, loans, current accounts, saving accounts and more from different financial providers.
Part of the CCPC’s role is to give consumers information about personal finance, and it is committed to playing its part in developing financial capability and well-being in Ireland. How to be Good with Money will give people practical ways to help take control of their finances and highlight the independent information available to consumers about personal finance available from the CCPC.
How to be Good with Money will air Thursdays on RTÉ One at 8:30pm beginning 10 January.Return to News
