Money Profiles are a framework for describing the different ways we are motivated to make and spend money. Our attitudes and behaviours toward money generally fall into one of four distinct categories, or profiles: Love, Freedom, Security and Power. Discover your Money Profile and read articles related to each category.
Love The spender: spending money makes you happy (e.g. retail therapy).
Freedom The adventurer: money provides you with opportunities to pursue impulses and interests.
Security The saver: feeling secure is your main priority, saving money helps you do that.
Power The driver: money drives and enables your success.

Ever wished you could make your world a happier place? Scientists have found that 40 per cent of happiness is entirely down to what we think and do. So, what’s the secret and how can you get a slice of that happiness pie?
There are lots of budgeting tools available which claim to understand your spending behaviours and trim your excess spend in ways you never realised. Using algorithms and assumptions on your day-to-day consumption, these budgeting engines will be able to provide a list of suggestions to keep spending down to reach your savings goal.
You may not be good with savings or make as much money as you wish, but your money position cannot be denied as being distinctly yours. It’s as much an aspect of your personality as your favourite ice cream flavour or the way you dress.
