If this sounds like you, you’re in good company. Our latest research, analysing people’s attitudes to personal, social and health-related activities, found that more than 12 million** adults in the UK feel like they just don’t have enough time to effectively manage their personal finances. Of course, the main reason for putting this off was being “too busy with other things”, with over half of respondents (53%) saying that’s why they don’t bother, followed by over a quarter (27%) saying that they found managing their personal finances to be “bewildering”.
While we all share similar problems, it seems there’s a generational divide, with millennials struggling perhaps more than the rest of us. So what’s really going on?
