Saga Looks At Consumers Ease Or Otherwise At Discussing Money

Published: 5/10/2010

A new study carried out by Saga Insurance has found that those over 50 years of age do not like to discuss money unless they really have to, unlike younger people who are much more at ease with it.

However there are some things that no-one is particularly comfortable discussing, no matter what their age. The Saga Insurance study revealed that discussions regarding earnings and salary figures are disliked by all categories, with respondents saying they would try and get out of such a discussion if they could.

On the subject of discussing finances generally, around half of those involved in the study told Saga Insurance that it was not an appropriate subject to discuss, whilst almost ten percent of people said they would be embarrassed to discuss their personal finance situation with anyone.
