The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) has renewed its sponsorship of popular RTÉ series ‘How To Be Good With Money’ which returns for a second series this evening, Thursday 9 January 2020, at 8.30pm.
Following on from the successful first series which aired in 2019, financial planner Eoin McGee assists households as they tackle their individual financial challenges, whether it’s tackling credit card debt or getting mortgage ready. Eoin provides support and advice to the participants as they get to grips with their financial situations and gives viewers insights and tips on how they can transform their finances.
As well as proving a hit with viewers, the CCPC’s sponsorship of the series was recognised by industry peers in December 2019, winning ‘Best TV Broadcast’ at the Irish Sponsorship Awards.
Isolde Goggin, Chair of the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission said, “The New Year brings a great opportunity for us all to take stock of our finances and identify where we can make some changes to improve our financial well-being. We are delighted to have the opportunity to partner with RTÉ again and to sponsor ‘How To Be Good With Money’ which, through real life situations, provides viewers with practical tips and advice on how they can take control of their finances in 2020.
Through our website, ccpc.ie, we provide a range of independent information and tools to help people chose financial products and manage their money. In the last twelve months, we have updated our money tools allowing consumers to more easily compare the rates, charges and features of financial products available on the market, including mortgages, loans, credit cards, current accounts and savings accounts. Consumers can use this information to get the product that best suits their needs. The tools can also be used to see if switching is worthwhile. ”
