Ask Justin

I am very sorry but due to the increasing number of questions being asked and my limited time to answer them, I have turned off the 'Ask Justin' facility for now. Once I clear some of the backlog of questions and can be confident of finding time to answer more of your questions moving forwards, I'll re-open it.

Justin's spent over 12 years working in financial services, during which time his expert views and comments have been featured thousands of times in the national press and on radio and telvision.

Please bear in mind that neither Justin nor this site are authorised or regulated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA), so he is not allowed to provide specific financial advice. To do so would involve a lot of onerous procedures and expense, for example, he'd have to gather details of and review your full financial situation - simply not practical for this service.
