Savings and Investment Index
The Savings and Investment Index, funded by Bank of Ireland, launched in November 2017. The index delves into how consumers view the savings environment and their sentiment towards saving in the future. On the investments front, the index uncovers where people are investing their money, how they feel about the amount they invest and whether they think it’s a good or bad time to invest. The original Index, the ESRI/Nationwide UK (Ireland) Savings Index, launched in January 2010 and focused solely on consumer sentiment towards saving. The new index adds insights into consumer attitudes towards longer-term investment intentions and also looks at how difficult or easy it is for consumers to live comfortably during retirement and how financially prepared they are.
