The pandemic has transformed how NI people feel about savings, according to Ulster Bank.
It surveyed 1,000 people across NI about their attitudes to budgeting and saving and found that 65% of people see saving money as more important now than what they did pre pandemic.
The survey by Cognisense showed 18 to 24-year-olds (79%) and 25 to 34-year-olds (78%) were more inclined to feel that way.
Terry Robb, head of personal banking at Ulster Bank Northern Ireland, said: “We know that with a bit of assistance, people can really make a huge difference to their personal finances; just through budgeting a bit better, keeping track of their spending and making small adjustments.”
This week the bank will launch a promotional video about saving featuring comedians Shane Todd and Dave Elliott.
