28 million adults in the UK do not save regularly
Abbey National
2 Sep 2005 United Kingdom Savings, Pensioners & Retirement, Investment - General
Abbey National’s fifth Savings Insight report has shown yet again that less than half the nation (42%) is in the habit of regular saving. Despite increasingly dire warnings that we need to save more, the number of people saving regularly has remained relatively unchanged and has increased just 3% over the last decade. The report reveals that the proportion of homeowners planning on funding retirement from an increase in property value has decreased by 2% to 28% over the past year.
