In this first of two bite-size podcasts, we look to tackle financial priorities for junior barristers, especially around financial protection.

Barrister Rachel Bale (2019 call, also Director of Her Bar) is joined by financial planning expert Simon Maydon of Saunderson House and protection specialist Carlo Nusca of Henry Dannell.  They address such items as:

  • The contrast between being employed versus self-employed
  • Where barristers can turn for trusted advice for their financial planning
  • With very little time, what financial planning junior barristers should prioritise
  • Why income protection is so important for barristers as sole traders
  • The typical cost of income protection
  • Why using a broker helps navigate the protection markets; and
  • What one should consider doing if one already has protection via chambers.

The talk also touches on some of the challenges junior barristers face, the jargon around financial protection and the stresses of a professional at the Bar.
