what is vulnerability? The Financial Conduct Authority, conducted a research in defining when a person could be defined as vulnerable. They discovered that 50% of people in the uk shows characteristics of potential vulnerability. The categories are health, life event, capabilty and resilience. These 4 main categories are usually overlapping with each other. Since financial resilience can effect about 30% of the Uk, we decided to dig deeper into this.
This resilience needs to be built over time and it is the result of a plan. Here we draw a scheme with two examples.The first one in red, is a person that has no financial plan, so when a life event happens they have no resilience to recover from it so fall under the vulnerability limite. Whereas the green person which had a financial plan, the impact is diluted over the lifetime .
To summerise the ‘lack of resilience’ may lead people to become vulnerable in the future.
Our Findings talking to users
As banking was new to us ,We interviewed a vast demographic to truly understand about finances, daily behavior on spending saving, financial education, history of interaction with bank, and self evaluation for own financial activity etc.
These are the 4 insights about young adults through research.
1. Environment produce/deteriorate vulnerability
People who we interviewed remarked that they "rarely talk about money", so, they need someone nudge and guide them to right way.
2. People perceive Bank as a trap, rather than a partner
Surprisingly, most of interviewee has no positive impression towards Bank. Some even said "don't trust bank". interaction with bank should be improved.
3. Perception is not consistent with reality
What was interesting is that their self evaluation towards own money management is not correct in some ways. We think having right perception is the first step to have resilience.
4. They have a policy or rule for spending, but don't have it for saving.
Young people care about spending money, but almost nobody has any rule for saving money. They live for today and look at the future as a distant phenomenon. It's matter of priority, so raising saving priority is the key.
why young adults have a policy for spending but not for saving
- Bank plans are restrictive and boring.
-Saving isn't part of their everyday life.
-And there is no support & emotional connection with savings.
