Money, Money, Money

Money, Money, Money with PensionMan & Vicky – every Thursday evening at 7pm

It’s all about money and music on a Friday afternoon.  It’s personal finance without the jargon and money talk without the stress.  We may even have the odd laugh!  

Most of all it’s your programme. You decide what we talk about and you can ask all the questions you like.  We cover all aspects of finance, from savings and investment through to pensions and taxation.  And best of all, there’s definitely no such thing as a silly question.

Who is PensionMan?

The self-styled PensionMan super hero is actually the mild mannered Stuart Trow.  Think a shorter, older, less good looking Clark Kent!


Stuart and his wife Vicky have a passion for helping people understand all aspects of personal finance. Stuart is a writer, blogger (check out www.pensionman.co.uk) and City pundit with decades of experience in financial analysis, strategy and education.


He has been involved in pensions for over 30 years. After graduating from the London School of Economics in Mathematical Economics and Econometrics, his first job was in Pensions Administration with Sun Life. After a stint at the aero engineer Rolls-Royce, he has spent more than three decades in investment and finance, which has included sitting on corporate retirement committees and passing all relevant regulatory exams.

He is also the author of the Bluffers Guide to Economics, a “how to” guide on passing yourself off as an economics expert.  His latest book project though rather suggests that the term “economics expert” is something of an oxymoron.  It examines how modern economics has damaged the prospects of our young people and how, ultimately, that is bad for all of us.  

With such a background people have increasingly sought him out to learn more about personal finance and investing: either on a one to one basis or by joining one of his popular Pensions by Candlelight dinners.  He firmly believes that personal finance doesn’t have to be difficult or complicated and it certainly doesn’t have to be intimidating.

So whether you want to understand the state pension or are interested in the pros and cons of the Bank of Mum & Dad.  Have a listen and join in!


The show is all about giving people the opportunity to learn how to do things for themselves by removing the mystery and the confusing jargon. When everything’s explained in plain English, it often becomes clear what you should do without the need for specific financial advice.


Of course certain legal and financial matters do require specialist advice and Stuart doesn’t hesitate to encourage you to consult specialist advisers in such circumstances.  Indeed financial education can be the ideal preparation for getting the best out of any financial advice you seek.  Which brings us nicely to our disclaimer!
