Nick Hubble: Poor financial literacy has allowed the financial industry “run riot over its customers”

In October Nick Hubble teamed up with Nigel Farage to launch Fortune & Freedom, a morning newsletter which aims to help people take control of their finances. In just over it month, Fortune and Freedom has gained over 33,000 subscribers, perhaps a hint that sentiment is shifting. Nigel Farage has form for going against the status quo. Should ‘the financial establishment’ be nervous about this latest venture?

The requests of some of the newsletters certainly suggests so. Nick has written about abolishing the ONS and central banking pseudoscience. But in this interview he also advises “control the things you can control, rather than spending your time getting aggravated by policy". That's perhaps easier said than done in the age of coronavirus restrictions, but Nick's message is certainly well reasoned.
