Effie Zahos's Biography
Effie Zahos is one of Australia’s leading personal finance commentators … known for her no-nonsense approach, she has a knack for making money matters simple.
A regular money expert on Channel 9’s Today Show and on radio around Australia, Effie is also the author of a children’s financial literacy book, The Great $20 Adventure, and A Real Girl’s Guide to Money: From Converse to Louboutins.
Effie was editor of Money magazine until 2019, having helped establish it in 1999 when talking about money in a fun, casual way wasn’t the norm.
As Editor-at-Large of Canstar, Australia's biggest financial comparison site, she continues to help Aussies make the most of what they have.
Passionate about financial literacy, Effie sits on the board of directors for Ecstra, a not-for-profit organisation committed to building the financial capability of all Australians within a fair financial system and is an independent Director of InvestSMART.
She holds a Bachelor of Economics Degree from the University of Queensland.
Effie is also the proud mother of two reformed spenders.
An avid podcast listener, she now has a podcast of her own – Real Money with Effie Zahos. She says her greatest fear is retiring in a polyester outfit and drinking cask wine.
