These cookies help us to modify the site's appearance based on your preferences and to record usage statistics like what countries our visitors are coming from. We also sometimes earn a small commission from the companies we work with and this helps to pay the costs of keeping the website operational. To do this a cookie is placed onto your computer when you visit a company from our website and if you then go on to buy something, the cookie identifies you as having come from our site and we earn our commission and this can sometimes lead to us getting exclusive offers for you as companies can identify that visitors have come from moneyprofessor.co.uk. It's also important to note that not everyone pays us a commission and many companies we discuss we have zero commercial relationships with.
