Only 5% of people trust financial institutions

Thumbs_down_410Just one in 20 people (5%) believe that financial institutions are always honest, a survey has found.

Roughly one in 10 agreed with any of the positive statements about financial institutions – yet 18 to 29-year-olds were around twice as likely to ‘trust financial institutions to have their customers’ interests at heart’ (16%), compared to only 9% of the 30+ age group.

YouGov carried out the survey for Shilling Communication.
