How DIYMoney Works

Not everyone needs a Financial Planner, but everyone needs a Financial Plan. At DIYMoney, we help you in three ways:

1. Financial Strategy

Through our in-depth video series, we show you how to design, build and maintain a successful financial plan for yourself and your family.

It’s Financial Planning with a financial planner but, unlike everyone else, we’re not selling you a product or trying to convince you to invest into… anything. And that means you can trust what we say.

No gimmicks, no sales pitches, no nonsense. Just honest, impartial financial guidance.

Research and reviews

2. Research & Reviews

In the world of financial products, there are thousands upon thousands of choices available to you.

To make this task less overwhelming (and time consuming!) we give you honest, independent reviews of popular financial products and funds and portfolios – to empower you to decide what’s best for your financial plans.

3. Ongoing Support

We support you over time. We’re watching the markets and investment funds. We’re all over the legislation too – making sure you know about changes to the tax code, or the pension rules, or the ISA limits, or whatever.

Let us worry about all that stuff, you have a life to live. As a member of the DIYMoney community, you’ll receive Market Memos, Wellness Webinars and Budget Bulletins – for you to consume as you see fit.

About Us

Joe Jackson

Joe Jackson

I’m a Financial Planner and I’ve been working in Financial Services since 2008. Day to day I’m a Director of Spiritus Wealth. In practice, I help people plan their financial futures.

I’m a huge believer that money doesn’t have to be complicated, and my ambition is to help a million people design, build and maintain their own successful financial plan. Hence why we’ve launched DIYMoney. We want to make Financial Planning available for everyone; and that means, we want it to be affordable.  

I’m in my mid-30s… I’m a father of two very young children, I have a mortgage… I’m trying to find a way to put a bit more away each month and still enjoy life. I dream of a secure financial future, I want to do the best I can for my kids. In short, I face the same challenges as you do. And that puts me in a great place to help you along your journey towards financial independence.

Richard Martin-Redman

I’m a Chartered Financial Planner and I’ve worked in the profession since 2009. My day job… I run Spiritus Wealth with Joe.

Financial Services Regulations changed in 2012, and ever since then, ‘normal’ people have been almost totally ignored by Financial Planners. We want to change that, because those ‘normal’ people are missing out on potentially life-changing financial expertise. For most people, money doesn’t need to be complex. It just needs about 90 minutes a year.

I’ve recently turned 40, I have two amazing children, a mortgage, financial dreams, family dreams… just like you, I’m at life’s coal face. Through the DIYMoney Hub we can help you grab your finances by the scruff of the neck and finally take control of your future.
