The most common financial concern is saving for the future, while the priorities for saving are the creation of an emergency fund and retirement income. Disappointing, however, is the fact that 60% of respondents have not yet started saving for their retirement, as well as 42% who consider it impossible to retire at the age they want.

The majority of respondents said they need savings guidance for long-term goals, such as retirement. Financial Literacy is a vital foundation for people's future well-being, helping them manage their finances, teaching them about risks and ultimately, looking to upgrade their financial well-being.

Financial Literacy, quite simply, is a prerequisite for economic freedom.
