Cassell acquires guide offering modern money education

Cassell has acquired a guide to help readers "spend, save and earn better", called You’re Not Broke, You’re Pre Rich, by Emilie Bellet.

Bellet is the founder of Vestpod, an organisation with a mission to empower women through financial education, and an ex-private equity analyst for Lehman Brothers. Her book outlines an agenda to help readers better understand their bank balance, make and manage more money, set goals, invest, and establish "success-oriented routines". It also features tips from industry leaders and FinTech entrepreneurs.

Romilly Morgan, senior commissioning editor at Octopus, acquired UK rights directly from the author (apparently after "hard fought negotiations", tactics of which will be outlined in the book). Publication date is set for 30th May 2019.

Bellet commented: "I am extremely happy to be working with Romilly on a book I wish I had read 10 years ago. My mission is to empower people financially by sharing my experiences of working in the industry and struggling to make the best financial decisions. Not for the love of money but because money equals freedom."
