Personal finance pessimism hits record low; but debt worries remain high – R3 PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 27 April 2015

Economic pessimism has hit a record low, with just 16% of British adults expecting their personal finances to get worse in the next six months, according to a long-running poll of British adults by ComRes and R3, the insolvency trade body.

By comparison, 26% of British adults expect their finances to improve – the third highest proportion on record. This is the biggest ‘lead’ economic optimists have had over the pessimists since July 2010.
Phillip Sykes, R3 president, says: “The improving economy is finally starting to affect how British adults see their own personal finances. It’s taken a while, but the personal finance picture is finally looking up after years in the doldrums.
“However, the number of people with debt worries or repeated financial struggles remains a source of concern.”
