[LISTEN] How to best spend your bonus

Personal financial advisor Warren Ingram gives some tips on how best to use that bonus.

JOHANNESBURG – Here are some tips by personal financial advisor and executive director at Galileo Capital, Warren Ingram, on how not to squander your 13th cheque this festive season.

Ingram says the best way to use your 13th cheque is to break it up in parts.
