Claer Barrett is multi-award-winning financial journalist,
broadcaster and commentator. The consumer editor at the Financial
Times, she presents the FT's weekly Money Clinic podcast, helping
listeners resolve their real-life financial dilemmas. She also
writes a high-profile column in the FT Weekend covering issues of
financial interest to financial consumers everywhere.
Claer frequently appears on TV and radio - from weekly appearances on ITV's Lorraine to LBC with Eddie Mair - answering money questions from the public. She is renowned as a trusted voice guiding people through the cost-of-living crisis with her trademark practical advice that cuts through financial jargon.
Claer has won a prestigious WIncott Award for campaigning on consumer issues and is a powerful advocate for financial literacy. She is a trustee of FLIC, the FT-backed charity (Financial Literacy and Inclusion Campaign) and frequently goes into schools running workshops about money for young people.
Unlike her name, Claer's journalism is always clear. She's a great
champion of financial literacy. I suspect the book will be no
different. More power to her elbow.
