Looking to enrich your knowledge about personal finances while living in France? What is the best personal finance content (podcasts, specialized magazines or youtube channels) to learn about how to take care of your money? 

We will be sharing our preferred ones in this blog so you can save time and start learning as early as today. 

Table of Contents

Why learning about Personal finances? 

We spend years at School and University so we can find a well-paid job to earn money. We spend a big part of our life time at work. Hence, it makes full sense to take care of this money. 

However, managing your personal finances is something not taught at the School. This leads many of us without the basic education and skills about this important point. 

Therefore, it fully relies on yourself to look up for the right content that fits your daily life routine. Podcasts, youtube videos, and magazines are well-fit to achieve this purpose. 

We all have some time available while commuting, during a break, making sports, or at bedtime. 

We find this way of learning very convenient, practical and inexpensive. You would just need to acquire the habit and just after a few weeks, you will notice a big knowledge leap. 

Notice that at the beginning you may feel a bit lost with finance ‘jargon’ or acronyms. Do not get discouraged by that obstacle.  


Criteria to choose a podcast or magazine? 

The first criteria for us would be the ‘authority’ of the source. We want to learn from knowledgeable and experienced people. There are many influencers just looking to gain followers.

Besides checking their background (through Linkedin or similar), you could spot them easily if they are talking about the latest hot stock or crypto currency, sitting next to a pool or driving a fancy car (most likely rented). 

Secondly, we would like to get unbiased knowledge. We avoid content creators whose main purpose is to sell something to us. It is common as well content creators focusing only on one asset type, or country. Just bear this in mind when making investment decisions based on their analysis. 

Another important point to consider will be the duration. We like ‘straight to the point’, direct content. This is rare especially in ‘French’ media 😉 

Having said that, let’s share with you our selection…
