Bank Magic: Financial Literacy for Young People
Bank Magic began as Murray’s response to the questions
and conversations that came from his clients. He was inspired
to provide his clients and in particular, their children, with
sound advice on managing their finances. He often heard
his clients say, “No one ever taught me about this” or “This
is the stuff I wish they taught me in school.” These questions
and conversations became the inspiration for this book.
This book reflects Murray’s passion for sharing his real-world
insight on money with his clients and their children. His goal
is that every reader walks away from with the
understanding and the tools to prepare them for today and
the world ahead tomorrow.
With this book, Murray sincerely hopes that the financial
questions that come up from young adults can be answered
and lead to a financially well-informed adult.
