Welcome to the Do-It-Yourself Financial Webring. The Webring is an informal group of websites which promote individual financial education and empowerment. The content of each site is the sole responsibility of its owner and no one else. The Webring is not responsible for that content.
Browse the individual sites in the Webring or visit the lively but moderated Discussion Forum to read comments about finances and other subjects from individuals with a wide range of views. Bogleheads®, our sister forum in the US, has a similar focus, many like-minded members, and may be of interest as well.
