Financy Glossary – The online dictionary of financial terms

Financial advisers and other finance professionals will some time use financial language that is hard to understand. This is usually due to them being so used to the language that they forget that their clients sometimes have a hard time understanding the terms they are using. Many feel to embarrassed to ask what the language the professional real means and end up making decisions based on less information than they really need to make an informed decision. Some unscrupulous individuals use this tactic to sell financial products such as Warrants, Swaps and CFD:s that are unsuitable for the client they are selling them to.

With this in mind we have created finance-glossery.com. A website where you can look up words and see what your financial adviser is trying to tell or not to tell you. The website is available for all phones with an internet connection and makes it possible
