Jacqueline Taylor is the visionary editor-in-chief behind JUNO magazine. Jacqueline is an accomplished multi-tasker, raising a family in the Hawke’s Bay countryside, renovating one of the country’s oldest villas and at the same time overseeing publication of JUNO, writing features and organising events for readers.
The former teacher had little formal education in handling money as a child and found the financial world quite intimidating. When she married fund manager Mike Taylor and worked alongside him at Pie Funds, she realised that the complex language of investing was stopping ordinary people taking steps towards financial freedom.
Jacqueline decided she couldn’t be the only one mystified by the terminology of investing and co-founded Moneta magazine with Mike, to help people understand the basics of investing. Later, Moneta evolved into JUNO and launched into the retail market.
Readers – both sophisticated investors and those just starting out – love its mix of plain English investing stories and beautiful lifestyle content, and JUNO continues to grow. Jacqueline’s goal is to have a copy on every coffee table in the country, so it can start families talking about money.
So, why JUNO? The Roman goddess, Juno Moneta, was regarded as the protectress of the city’s funds. Money was coined in her temple for over four centuries.
