Moneyfacts in the news - 04/08/2015

Tuesday, 4 August 2015

Moneyfacts’ research and expert comments are always in demand, and in the last seven days, we’ve certainly got around. Here’s a quick overview of where we’ve been in the past week:
The Guardian used expert comment from Moneyfacts’ Charlotte Nelson on its airmiles piece, specifically looking at how consumers can use credit cards to benefit. The newspaper also used our data for its story on equity release, giving us two mentions in a week.
The Mirror used our mortgage figures and expert commentary from Charlotte for its piece on mortgage lenders pulling the cheapest deals, reiterating our finding that those with large deposits could find it cheaper to fix than get a tracker mortgage.
Our research into regular savings accounts was used as the basis of a story in the Express, including commentary from one of our resident finance experts Rachel Springall.
The Sunday Times used commentary from Charlotte on its piece looking at holiday cash and the best way to spend, a topical theme at the moment!

Elsewhere, we could be seen in Introducer Today and Mortgage Solutions (both stories covered our research into fixed mortgage rates potentially being cheaper than variable), the Henley Standard (which used our data for its piece on rising interest rates) and the Express and Star (taking expert comment from Rachel for its story on Tesco current accounts).
