Trust in the personal saving possibilities is still strong

In the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, eight consumers out of ten assume that they will save money in the next 12 months, according to a Consumer Survey conducted by Statistics Finland in January. Less than half of all consumers stated that they were very likely to put money aside. 8 per cent of consumers are not at all likely to save money during the coming 12 months. In the whole country, 17 per cent of consumers will not save money.  In January, the share of those who would very likely set money aside was lower than in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area.  In July, the balance indicator describing personal saving possibilities was 57.9 in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area (57.4 in December) and 53.6 in all of Finland (50.8 in December).
