Family Affairs: Britain’s problem with financial capability
Tue 19 April 2016, 12:00 – 14:00 BST
Join us for the launch of a new Social Market Foundation new report that looks at Britain’s challenges with financial capability in a whole new light. Instead of considering individual capability, it uses original analysis of the Wealth and Assets Survey to look at the overall financial capability of families; how they share financial responsibilities to match these capabilities; and whether some families have no-one with capability that will allow them to navigate financial decisions effectively. This research and event are kindly supported by Santander.

Key questions we would like to discuss at this roundtable include:
- Can better use of family ties and wider social networks be the answer to boosting capability in the UK?
- How can resources be better targeted to find those households with the lowest overall levels of capability?
- What does that mean for public policy?
- And what should businesses be doing in response?
