The Financial Experience Matters
Borrowing and investing are central to the financial experience. From education and entrepreneurship to building a secure future, people are open to opportunities, but many could also benefit from streamlined processes and professional support. Highlights from the research include:
- When looking for a lender, 46 percent of recent borrowers (those who applied for a mortgage or home equity line of credit in the last five years) relied on their primary financial organizations, either by calling, looking online or asking at their local branch
- Nearly six in 10 consumers (57 percent) are saving for retirement, but only 37 percent are confident they're saving enough
- Only 28 percent of consumers currently work with a financial advisor. These consumers are by far the most likely to be confident in the advice they receive
