  • You could end up committed to yet another savings scheme and none the wiser about managing your finances... 
  • He became convinced that his illness was purely imaginary: that made it none the better.
  • Small investors like myself are probably none the richer after handing over their financial affairs to professional advisers.

△You use none the to say that someone or something does not have any more of a particular quality than they did before.(= no)

△none the worse/better/richer, etc. : not any worse/better/richer, etc. than before.
