Hello, hi, welcome!
This year’s National Conversation Week is all about talking finances.
Talking about our money (or lack of it) is almost as taboo as talking about politics.
When we surveyed 1,000 people in the UK, we found that finance is one of the nation’s biggest worries with nearly 40% of people admitting that finance worries them more than anything else in their lives. However, worryingly only half of people said they would actually seek professional advice.
What’s going on UK?
Our finances are something that massively influence our lives, and, conversations are critical to getting them in the best shape they can be – so why aren’t we discussing them?
It could be down to several reasons – maybe a lack of knowledge, confusing jargon, or even simply being embarrassed to ask for help?
Well, during National Conversation Week we want to change that!
This year we’ve partnered with Defaqto, in aid of Mind, and together we’re aiming to help more people boost their financial knowledge, and understand the difference between products and how different comparison tools work to plug the financial knowledge gap.
Sound like something you want to be part of? Great! Here’s how you can get involved.
