Welcome to this special 12th edition of The Money Doctor - now firmly established as Ireland's most comprehensive finance guide.
Helpful at every stage of your journey through life - whether you need advice on taxes, pensions, investments, mortgages, debt or your redundancy rights - The Money Doctor 2017 provides a simple and easy-to-understand guide to finances in Ireland, including how Budget 2017 changes will affect you.
The area of most concern to Irish people is the increasing and ongoing problem of mortgage debt and arrears and how to maximise the returns on investment. The Money Doctor 2017 is fully up to date on changes to the Personal Insolvency Act legislation and the Mortgage Arrears Resolution Process (MARP) together with the dos and don'ts of bankruptcy.
Now, more than at any previous time, it is of paramount importance to seek independent advice from a qualified financial adviser before considering any type of financial commitment. This book and the Money Doctor advisory services will go a long way in the quest to better manage, safeguard, preserve and grow your money.

John Lowe is one of the few personal finance authors who writes from first-hand experience because on top of his books, newspaper articles, TV and radio appearances, he still works full time as an independent financial adviser to a wide cross-section of personal and corporate clients. His popular personal finance seminars have been delivered throughout Ireland, overseas to expatriate communities and to company employees (funded by their employers), helping them to structure their finances, slash costs and boost income at a time when they need it most. This seminar is entitled `Financially healthy for life' and it can be supplemented by one-to-one consultations with staff on the day.
