Covered in this report
Despite interest rates remaining at historically low levels, improvements in other macroeconomic variables such as employment and wage growth have contributed to a recovery in the savings ratio. Amid a period of economic and political uncertainty, consumers are saving more but in many cases they are not getting the best returns for their savings.
The role of providers in helping customers make the most of their money is not straightforward, with the majority of people preferring financial institutions to play a passive role. However, while there are generational divides when it comes to saving attitudes and behaviours, the impact technology can have in money management is more widely appreciated across the population.

When it comes to saving and making the most of their finances, the majority of people are reluctant to receive direct help from financial services providers. Attitudes tend to vary greatly depending on demographics, particularly age, but consumers of all generations agree that technology helps them to be better at managing their money. Irene Salazar
