As many as 43% of Brits worry about money "more often than not" according to a new survey. While even more tellingly, 17% of us worry about money "all the time".
This year's Financial Planning Survey 2010, commissioned by the Institute of Financial Planning in association with National Savings and Investments (NS&I) is a damning indictment of the state of the nation's wealth.
And most alarmingly the survey reveals that few know where to turn for help and advice.
A staggering 87% of respondents say that they would be encouraged more towards saving if savings products were easier to understand or more flexible.
Nick Cann, CEO of IFP says: "If people want to steer a financially smooth course through these challenging economic times, it would appear their chances look gloomy."
