    Hi there,

    I have a young friend who has saved a small sum. She has only used bank accounts for her savings. She hasn't used term deposits and her fear of risk has kept her away from managed funds.:eek:

    I am asking for help, to financially educate her. I am after:

    1. Beginner finance websites (Really simple ones)

    2. Good beginner books (perhaps female authors)

    3. Good DVDs

    4. Female oriented wealth magazines




    Thankyou,
    Johny.
