Introducing The Financial Resilience Index

4th June 2020

The Research

The Financial Resilience Index uses five key financial indicators to gain insight into how Kiwis feel and think about financial issues. 

  1. Financial Confidence
  2. Financial Literacy
  3. Financial Preparedness
  4. Job Security
  5. Wellbeing

Standout pieces of the research include the relationship between financial concerns and mental health with over 40% of Kiwis worrying about money on a weekly basis at least, and the effect that COVID-19 has had on New Zealanders with 50% of Kiwis feeling an effect from the crisis on job security in April. As an industry we have invested in this landmark research to build a better picture and understanding of exactly how New Zealanders feel at this time and in coming months about money and other everyday financial concerns.
