Meet the WTF ladies
"If an investment makes a loss or things aren’t working the way I like them to, I get a little stressed which has an impact on my life."
"I have a company pension, but I am trying to find out more and find the information and it’s a whole minefield really isn’t it."
"I’ve come a long way from where I was, and still need to go a lot further, but I’m trying my best. That's why money is precious."
"When you look online there’s too much information. Firstly, for someone like me, a laymen, it’s hard to know where to start."
"I don’t gamble – I don’t do the lottery. So I think maybe investing is my way of doing that. But I should probably have a professional look at it."
"I look at my neighbours sometimes and wonder how they survive on their money. Do they have to worry about it? Can they just do what they want?"
"I don’t particularly fancy a helicopter or a yacht or anything like that – all I want is to provide security for my family and my old age."
"I think managing your money is harder for women. But I like to be independent. So I do my research myself and get by."
"We’re busy people, working mothers, have a million things going on. We want short, sharp information. Not a whole load of waffle."
"I have a couple of best friends who I discuss money stuff with and it seems a lot of people just try to keep their heads above water."
"Saving is just a bit boring sometimes. But the stock market sounds fun! I just don’t understand it all yet."
"When I was 18 or 19 I was very frivolous. So I’m definitely more careful these days. I’ve learned my lesson!"
"Finance companies should push me into contributing more. I like being bullied into putting money away. But they don’t, so I don’t."
"My and my husband’s decisions are joined, but my husband does the managing of it. He’ll just do the donkey work first."
"I like a balance between doing all the nice things I want to do and having a money comfort blanket just in case things go belly-up in the future."
