Talking about money with loved ones can be difficult. So in order to make those tricky conversations a little easier, a new project has broken down how we relate to money into six different Money Styles. Think love languages, but for finances. Tanya Eisener, the Senior Vice President of Retail Customer Value at Scotiabank, and Adam Palanica, the Senior Manager of Global HR Insights and People Analytics at Scotiabank, are our guests this episode. They tell us how this tool works, why it’s needed and how you can use it to get a better handle on the emotions around money.

To take the quiz and find your Money Style, check out the Money Style by Scotia Advice+ page.
