    Hi,
    I wish to increase my knowledge on investments and pensions. I enquired about the ‘Retirement Benefits’ and ‘Savings and investments’ modules offered by the National College of Ireland but I was informed that unless I was enrolling for the certificate or diploma courses, I won’t be allowed to enroll for individual modules. I have no intention of becoming a financial adviser but I wish to become very knowledgeable in these areas. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I found Smarter Investing by Tim Hale a good book in Investing. Nothing too complicated and it covers the bases.

    The Millionaire Next Door is Thomas J Stanley is a great book on growing wealth

    Where to start on pensions? The insurance company websites have information. As does the Revenue pension manual

    Would doing the QFA help you? Its discussed elsewhere. From what I can gather, Its reasonably cheap, flexible (you study in your own time - but there are exams) and covers a broad range of topics (investment, pensions etc).
