I began The Safer Investor Community in a bid to help promote financial literacy to our communities.
Financial literacy is more important today than ever. The pandemic has brought a huge wave of broker scams with unscrupulous firms and individuals targeting unwitting investors – especially targeting the young.
My ultimate aim is to help the community understand the basics of finance and to start investing safer, wiser and in confidence.
Hi, I’m James Finn – I started the Safer Investor Initiative to help communities learn the basics of finance and move towards financial freedom.
During my career, I have worked as a Financial Analyst at Barclays Bank, and an IT Manager at Fujitsu Systems.
I have a BA in Business as well as a PgD in Industrial Computing Systems where I did my thesis on physical computer security.
I love travel, trekking, cycling, diving, music, languages and meeting fun, unusual and engaging people from varied backgrounds.
Giving back to the community in which I live is important to me. As well as run the Safer Investor, I also volunteer with isolated, older people as well as facilitate a mental health group specialising in bipolar disorder. In previous years, I have completed various conservation projects.
