Julia Newbould is the new managing editor of Money magazine. She was the magazine’s editor at large since December 2019.
Julia has more than 20 years of financial journalism experience and was previously editor of Financial Planning and Super Review magazines at Reed Business Information, managing editor at InvestorInfo, and managing editor at Morningstar Australia. Her most recent role was at BT Financial Group in marketing and communications, where she founded the Stella Network, a networking group for women in financial advice.
“I believe passionately in helping those who are keen to help themselves. We’re not all born equal and do not have the same opportunities in life, but through education, we can make up for some of the initial inequalities,” says Julia.
Michelle Baltazar, editor-in-chief of Money magazine, said, “I’m happy to announce Julia as the new managing editor of our flagship consumer title. Her passion for helping people with better managing their finances has been well demonstrated.”
Julia says she is thrilled to be taking the reins of this prestigious title and working with the talented team of writers as well as the wonderful wealth management professionals. Research shows 50 per cent of Australians carry some anxiety about their finances, but with financial education and knowledge, this reduces. In 2020, the Money team focused on helping people understand their position on super, debt and unemployment, bounce back from COVID related setbacks and overall relieve that anxiety.
“The magazine remains loyal to its original purpose to help everyday Australians better take care of their financial futures through understanding financial planning principles and investments,” Newbould says. “Everyone who wants to know more about money to help them create the life they want should be able to access the information they need to make informed choices. We are in a privileged position to be able to help them find this information.”
