The Financial Capability of the UK
Financial capability gives people the power to make the most of their money and improve their lives. The aim of the Strategy is to help people to improve their financial capability, to enable them to have the best possible financial wellbeing, both now and in the future. This means addressing all the factors that influence people’s behaviour around money: skills and knowledge, our attitudes towards money, motivation to take action, and the accessibility of financial services.
We estimate over 250 organisations in the UK, across government, financial services, the public sector and the third sector, are currently engaged in improving financial capability.
The Financial Capability Strategy for the UK has been launched. For more information about the Strategy, please visit the Financial Capability Strategy website www.fincap.org.uk/
