Iona Bain is a Scottish-born musician turned financial journalist who has become the UK’s go-to voice on millennial money. She founded the pioneering Young Money Blog in 2011 and has since gone on to become an award-winning journalist, broadcaster, speaker, and author specialising in personal finance.
Previously a musician and music writer, Iona founded Young Money Blog to help her generation get to grips with their finances. It was prompted by an unfortunate incident in which all of Iona’s gig earnings were stolen from a piggybank in a burglary! Writing the blog helped her get back on her feet and she quickly found an audience with her down-to-earth, witty and helpful analysis of the financial problems facing millennials. The blog went onto be named Money Blog of the Year by Santander and is now widely recognised as one of the UK’s best financial blogs.
