… I’m Scott Phillips.

Managing your own money — saving, budgeting, investing, passing it on and giving it away — doesn’t need to be as hard as many people make it out to be.

It takes a little knowledge (that’s where I come in) and a little effort (that’s where you come in).

I’m The Motley Fool‘s Chief Investment Officer here in Australia, and I run  Motley Fool investment services — Share Advisor, Everlasting Income, Premier Portfolio and Motley Fool Platinum.

I’m passionate about helping our members achieve the best possible investment returns, and about helping Australians learn to better manage their money.

I write regular columns for The Sydney Morning HeraldThe Age, and Money Magazine. I appear regularly on Your Money, Weekend Sunrise on Channel 7 and Money News Show with Ross Greenwood, and I co-host the Motley Fool Money podcast with Anirban Mahanti, in partnership with Triple M.

I’ll bring as much of that as I can to you here. Make sure you check out my articles and links to my media appearances as they go up in the days and weeks ahead.
