This week we’re celebrating #TalkMoneyWeek – an annual campaign that has been set up to get the nation talking about money!
Talking about money doesn’t come naturally to everyone. Luckily, there’s a small space on Instagram that’s filled with super knowledgeable people who love talking about money.
Below we hear from our favourite personal finance Instagram accounts in the UK. These personal finance Instagram accounts cover a whole plethora of topics, from budgeting and saving to investing and pensions.
If you like the sound of their personal finance Instagram accounts, then make sure you give them a follow. Their bite-sized tips and fantastic attitude towards managing money will see you levelling up your finances in no time!

I even share some London-specific ideas on how to improve your financial well-being whilst living in the city.

5. The Penny Mix
The Penny Mix is all about providing simple money tips to young people! But more than financial education, we also chat about career and mindset, two things which have a big impact on our money and financial goals! Insurance and pensions are our absolute faves – I promise we’re not boring! And while these money topics may not be as sexy as investing, they are as important, if not more, and we think it’s time to get young people thinking about protecting themselves financially, both today and in the long-term.
We caught up with The Penny Mix to discuss pensions in a little more detail…
