Hello, hi, welcome!
This year’s National Conversation Week is all about talking finances.
More and more people are beginning to feel that talking about finances is more taboo than talking about politics. Crazy right?
When we surveyed 2,000 people in the UK, we found that finance is one our biggest worries. Nearly 40% of people admitted this; however, only half of those said they would seek advice.
What’s going on UK?
Our finances are something that massively influence our lives, whether we want to believe it or not, and, conversations are critical in order to get them in the best shape they can be – so why are we not feeling able to discuss them?
It could be down to several reasons – maybe a lack of knowledge, maybe the confusing jargon terms used in the financial world causing confusion, or maybe even being embarrassed to ask for help?
Well, this National Conversation Week we want to change that!
This year, we’re encouraging everyone in the UK to be more open when it comes to their finances, whether that’s learning more about the finances required at each stage in our lives earlier, so you’re better prepared, or just taking the step to seek advice for your current financial situations, with a friend, family member, colleague or professional.
Sound like something you want to be part of? Great! Here’s how you can get involved.
