There has been much recent attention given in policy terms to addressing the lack of financial resilience in the UK population and the key issues of retirement planning, the funding of social care, and adapting to an ageing society.
Dr. Michelle Harrison, CEO of Kantar Public
Jane Vass, Head of Policy at Age UK
At this Breakfast Briefing, we will be revealing the findings from our latest research on the financial resilience of British households, and attitudes and behaviours around retirement planning.
This research has highlighted some new and emerging trends. There is a suggestion that five years of austerity have left British culture fundamentally changed in terms of spending behaviours – and there is a deep desire at the household level to feel more secure about financial futures. The research shows however, new areas of inequality in people’s ability to cope, plan and act; and at the same time, a new, more ‘entrepreneurial’ trend towards retirement emerging from some.
