In terms of specific finances, covering basic expenses was most important for young people (61%), followed by the enjoyment of life (40%), and then independent home ownership (35%).
Fewer than average, 16% can give the correct answer to three basic questions assessing financial literacy, and will rely primarily on the state (40%) to finance their retirement years.
