The Financial Services Authority (FSA) is launching a new campaign which sees its role change from regulation to promotion.
In a bid to help consumers make more sense of their money, the FSA says it is taking its consumer education message to the country by distributing some 200,000 copies of a booklet called You and your money through 1,400 post offices in high streets.
According to FSA research, two-thirds of people who buy financial products find the language used off-putting, however they still persist in buying a wide range of products.
The leaflet published by the FSA - You and your money - explains how to shop around and encourages them to ask questions about anything they don't understand.
For copies of this and the booklets available from the FSA - such as the 'FSA guide to repaying your mortgage' and the 'FSA guide to making a complaint' contact the FSA's consumer helpline on 0845 606 1234, or see the FSA's consumer website.
IFAonline is interested in hearing your feedback on this issue.
